Welcome to another Wednesday Wallpapering.

This week we are off to the comparatively incomparable Milford Sound.

This splendid image was made by my equally splendiferous wife Sarah and the experience was a memorable lesson in the meteorological impact of large slabs of granite.  Before we entered the Homer tunnel on the Te Anau side, we were considering ‘chaining up’ as  snow was settling rapidly on the road – we popped out of the tunnel on the Milford side to be greeted by this pristine day, it was an other-worldly experience.  This image features as February’s pinup in our 2013 Calendar.

Of course it is also available as a not so free print on our website.

See you next week!

    One of several all-time favorite shots from “stable Sisson”
    This is probably the No. 1 shot for me.
