Finally made it to Milford Sound today (last attempt 10 years ago a snow avalanche blocked the road). This time it rained all day so we didn't see features such as the iconic Mitre Peak. Milford has 3 permanent waterfalls - today there were hundreds of extra as water poured down the sides of the fiord - an incredible sight. They disappear again 1 hour after the rain stops. This was one of the temporary waterfalls.
Conditions were dark so I had to shoot using ISO 800 and sometimes at 1600 to get speeds to counter the boat movement.

Being a nature lover and nature photographer I like this. TFS.

Very beautiful and rather unique picture of a temporary waterfall. I like the slant of the water which adds to the sense of movement. Well done.

Hi Ian, Great scene, and the composition was good too, with the water snaking down the frame. I think it may have been better if you'd tilted the scene counter clockwise a bit, as it looks a bit crooked - hard to avoid shooting from a boat, but easily fixed in photoshop. On my monitor the colours look odd too. Perhaps a bit too much magenta? cheers, Steve

The waterfall looks like a Chinese landscape painting from years ago. Very nice positioning and placement as you have caught this falls at it peak. Amaster painter would have loved to replicate this scene. Thanks
