'Mother Nature's Mirror,' New Zealand, Milford Sound, Mirror Lake

Below is an excerpt from my travel blog. Cheers.

 

Can you imagine living in a world where mirrors or glass didn't exist? Going to work in the morning, you encounter numerous reflective materials, such as the rear view mirror in your car and glass windows from storefronts on the street. Even staring into your phone before the screen lights up presents you with a glimpse of yourself. I can only imagine what hair was like in the days of cavemen.

 

The lake pictured above is called Mirror Lake. I'm sure you can understand why. Located in New Zealand, it reflects the Southern Alps so vividly that it almost plays a trick on the mind. Blocked by any wind, the only thing makes you realize that it's actually water is the rare occasion that a frog or insect disrupts the surface, creating a ripple on mother nature's natural mirror.
