The land of the long white mountain range
We had a superb view of the Southern Alps as we flew in at 3pm today. I'll sort out a Flickr set, but in the meantime here's a sample. (This is straight from the camera, so no promises about colour etc.) The big blocky mountain at upper centre is Mt Cook, with the Grand Plateau sweeping out to the left. In front are the neves of the Franz Josef (left) and Fox glaciers. The terminal lakes of the Tasman Glacier are at the top left.
