I took this photo while sitting on my bed in my hotel in Queenstown, New Zealand a few years ago. It was one of those photos you take at the time but only realise how much you like it when looking at it later. I sat down, noticed the view and got up to get my camera. I love the colours, particularly of the Lake.
We visited this street in Dunedin, New Zealand on my tour a few years ago. We were told the town planners didn’t visit Dunedin beforehand. They didn’t realise this would result in some very steep streets, including the world’s steepest.

I took this photo from my bed in a Queenstown, New Zealand, hotel.
After a long day of walking and sightseeing I went up to my room and almost collapsed on the bed. After a few minutes of resting I looked out of the window and saw this amazing and gorgeous view. The hotel is on a cliff overlooking Lake Wakatipu and the surrounding mountains. I’m really happy with how the light coming in has provided a wide, dark frame for the photo.
Milford Sound, New Zealand
The mountains that surround Milford Sound are the highest I’ve ever seen. Not that I’ve travelled to many countries but Australia doesn’t have many really high mountains compared to other countries.
The cruise ship in my photo is completely dwarfed by these mountains. When we sailed past the ship we realised how big it is and how big the mountains are.

New Zealand is known as the Land of the Long White Cloud but I think it should be known more for it’s mountains. Here are a sample of some of the mountains we passed along the way.
This photo shows how tall the mountains are. The ship is a large cruise ship but it is dwarfed by the mountains at Milford Sound.
The world’s steepest street. When the streets were planned many years ago, there was no regard given to the mountains surrounding this part of Dunedin. So there are many steep streets in the area.
