Rugged Valley

Rugged Valley

Probably my favourite photo from Queenstown, this is the view from the western ridge that overlooks Lake Wakatipu, down across to the river delta next to Glenorchy and Kinloch. I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to take a scenic Helicopter ride from Queenstown to Milford Sound, and this was one of the scenic stops along the way.

Crop, sharpen, vignette, b&w treatment with tint (DFx filters).
