Approaching the head of Lake Te Anau and the starting point of the Milford Track in Fiordland National Park, New Zealand (Nov 2016). The mountains of Fiordland are heavily glaciated with deep U-shaped valleys, towering rock faces and abundant flora and fauna. It’s a legendary region for rainfall. The feeling of pre-historic isolation can be profound.
The start of the multi-day Milford Track is reached by boat traveling up the lake. This photograph was taken approaching the head of the lake and the start of the track, through the gap directly ahead.
