Hi John. Beautiful photo. Unusually for such a shot, the composition is very strong with the central group of mountains standing separate from the surrounds. If the whole scene was covered with snow this would have been just another shot :)
What height were you at when you took this, and was it through a standard plane's window?
An impressive shot John.I have a few like this also taken over the West of the South Island.I'll post a couple later.Cheers, Steve.

Hi John, you show the rivers here and I find that very interesting. I have read stories about the rivers that sometimes cover all the flat land, and another day is only a trickle.
Excellent capture, super view, especially with the new snow. Well done, thank you.
