Canterbury plains landscape, New Zealand

Newer Older

Another view of the Southern Alps from Air New Zealand's scenic flight from Auckland to Queenstown. It's was quite a task overcoming the technical difficulties - contrast, colour balance, shooting through a plastic window!

    Thanks for the comments. This was a scene I was desperate to capture. My kitestring is too short and the hot air balloons too expensive (Anthony - I did look!). Thankfully the weather was good.

    Thank you, Geography has always been important to me, and to be able, through Flickr to see what places actually look like is a great delight to me. I live in the UK, and shall probably never be able to visit so thank you for sharing.

    i've had the pleasure of seeing this view myself a couple of times ... very well captured - you have surmounted the challenge of the small plastic plane window very well :)

    Absolute stunner. Well done Kenny. To get such a result through an aircraft window is amazing.
    Viewed on black: Wow!!
