Earl Mountains and Mirror Lake
Located on the west coast of New Zealand’s South Island near to the road leading to Milford Sound near perfect reflections of the Earl Mountains can be seen in Mirror Lake on any bright day. Earl Mountains and Mirror Lake New Zealand is an image all about reflections.
This image taken very early on a spring morning from the public viewing platform capture exactly this phenomena. The biggest surprise when taking this image was the sheer number of people on the viewing platform, having left from Teanu at three o’ clock in the morning and travelled to Milford Sound to capture the first light of the day before any of the tourist buses got there, on my return I found the platform crowded and had to wait quite some time for people to stop moving around and for the wooden platform to stop moving before making this image. As I recall it was still before eight in the morning when I left the platform, I wouldn’t want to know how crowded the platform got later in the day but I am very sure I got the best light of the day.
