Weekly Photo Challenge : Horizons

My memory of Hobart will be dominated by the back drop of Mount Wellington. We woke in the morning and looked out of the window at the mountain, to see what the weather would be that day. The drive to the top of the mountain gave a magnificent view of the city nestled far below.

So for the this weeks photo challenge “HORIZON” I will take you to the top of Mount Wellington to gaze far across the city and over the Derwent River to the distant horizon.

Another horizon that will stay in my memory forever is the horizons of the South Island of New Zealand. Dominated by the splendour of the Southern Alps and often reflected in azure blue lakes. When Aotearoa, the “Land of the Long White Cloud” lifts her skirt of cloud to show you the splendour that is the mountains it is breath-taking. Photos can never do justice to this scenery, but I try to capture it.

When winter is looming and snow sprinkles the mountain peaks the mist envelopes you and the horizon shrinks between the valleys and mist.

This last misty photo was taken on the way to Milford Sound in New Zealand. If you would like to come for a trip with me to visit the magnificent misty scenery of the Milford Sounds click here. : http://pommepal.wordpress.com/2012/05/03/southern-alps-first-snow-of-the-season
