Milford Sound – what can I say that doesn’t make me sound like a blithering idiot… WOW, it’s stunning! Nope, that really doesn’t cut it. After camping the night at Cascade Creek campsite a little way down the road we set out nice and early on our journey to Milford Sound. The road in (and out) is pretty spectacular, its a shame you’re not allowed to stop anywhere along the road to take photos. Avalanche risk – eeeekk!
Once we arrived, we grabbed a coffee (well… peppermint tea for me, hot chocolate for our daughter and coffee for the hubby) and headed for our cruise boat. The sun was shining and there was barely a cloud in sight. Apparently this is an extremely rare occurrence with rain falling in the Milford Sound area anywhere between 180-300 days in the year.
The peaks are beautiful, and the waterfalls… oh the waterfalls! Everything I shot that morning was shot hand held as we were constantly moving on the boat. It was a challenge, but a welcomed one at that. Definitely worth the trip out there. I’d love to go back when the weather wasn’t so lovely. I imagine it would look completely different, much more moody and dramatic. Fingers crossed for next time.
