Fiordland National Park

Taken on a trip through Fiordland National Park in New Zealand, en route to Milford Sound. The bus driver said this was his favorite view in the 50 countries he had been, so of course I took a photo.  © 2012 by Bridget Ehemann

    Being there, not just Fiorland, but New Zealand, that’s been my dream for such a long time! And I’m still willig to get there, somehow! 🙂

  3. Darren says:

    There’s a desolate beauty about that view

  4. i used to live and work in at Milford Sound, a very special place in NZ. It has to be on everyone’s bucket list….

    • How cool for you to spend so much time there, it is one of the most beautiful places I’ve seen. Did you ever run across a guide named Wattsie? he was the guide who stopped the bus so we could enjoy this view

      • no, didn’t meet Wattsie. Which company were you with? there are a few that do the runs in there. what was your most enjoyable spot? did you see any wildlife?

  5. It is a magical place. imagine cycling there 🙂

  15. I have been trying for the past five minutes to find the right adjective for this photo…. it’s beyond words!

  25. Zenwalker says:

    This pic reminds of the phrase from the song “Turn the page”

    Here i am, on the ROAD again.
    There i am, up on the hills
    Here i goooo, playing in the nature again
    There i go, Turn the page

  26. these mountains are… intimidating! Takes your breath away even through pictures…

  27. This photo is amazing! I also really like the one in Notre Dame Cathedral, Mekong River, I could go on. Your pictures are more than beautiful, you actually capture the breath and essence of what you are photographing.

    Namaste and many blessings***

  28. Ammon says:

    Mountains like these are inspiring. These are the types where Old Testament prophets would go to commune with deity.

  29. BB says:

    WOW! What an amazing view and photograph!! I live for a view like that!

    We just got back from a hike through the national park to Milford Sound. It was amazingly beautiful. Nice shot of the dichotomy of forest and ice. If you’re interested, check out my pictures from NZ….

  46. I thought I recognised those fiords! Beautiful photo and it brings me back to our honeymoon in Oz/NZ last December. I’m a bit embarrassed to share mine with a professional photographer, but here are some of my own travel photos from NZ:

  53. hasayang says:

    I love, love, love New Zealand! Been lucky enough to visit it four times. The road to Milford Sound in Fiordland National Park has some of the most spectacular scenery in the world. Beautiful picture! Cheers!

    • wow – 4 times, I’m jealous! my friends are going there next year, do you have any recommendations?

      • hasayang says:

        Hi Bridget. For next year, my suggestion is to visit those places you haven’t gone before and if there is spare time, revisit those places you love. Doubtful Sound is another place in Fiordland National Park to visit where there is less people and waterfall but the solitude is golden. Try water rafting nearby Queenstown and Rotorua or kayaking in Fiordland National Park, Nelson, Picton and in North Island – Coromandel or Hahei. If you haven’t been there yet, try Mt Cook National Park, Lake Tekapo and Wanaka in South Island. I have a list of NZ articles and links if you need information and views of first hand account. Till then, have fun travelling and photographing!

  54. asoulwalker says:

    That place looks amazing.

  55. balkal says:

    nice picture !!! 🙂

  56. Fiordland is one of the most beautiful places on Earth, I concur. I was there 7 years ago and can still relive the entire trip like it was yesterday. Great capture

  57. learn how to make a free website with a real domain name (not a subdomain)and a free webhosting plan, learn it on my article blog-

  58. Joe Labriola says:

    As if I needed any more incentive to want to visit New Zealand! Is it really as beautiful as they say and it seems??

    • you should visit! They say it is beautiful any time of the year – even if it is raining, it means there are waterfalls all around Milford Sound. Enjoy your trip! 🙂

  59. scintillatebrightly says:

    Looks good, but how was the rest of the park?

  60. Stunning…wild remote places are amazing!
