Photographer's Note

The view at dawn of the stunning Milford Sound with the reflection of the 1,692 metre Mitre Peak in the water.

Milford Sound is a fjord in the south-west of New Zealand's South Island and one of the countrys biggest tourist attractions.

Milford Sound has an average annual rainfall of over 6800 mm on 182 days a year, and this is a high level even for the West Coast of New Zealand. Milford Sound is known as the wettest place in New Zealand and one of the wettest in the world. Rainfall can reach 250 mm during a span of 24 hours.

As you can imagine, I was happy to get this view when I was there. If you do visit, remember to take insect repellent as the area is home to the sandfly and plenty of them.
