I am amazed that travel guides and tourist brochures don't suggest traveling up to Coronet Peak in summer. It is big for skiing in winter but it has a decent (if steep and at times narrow) bitumen access road. We did notice some people getting ready to jump off the mountain for a spot of hang gliding.
The views from the top are superb back over Queenstown, The Remarkables (the range on the left)and Lake Wakatipu.
A hand held panorama from 2 photos. I did a large version but when I saw it uploaded I immediately deleted it (overly pixilated) - I'll get these large ones right sometime!

This a fantastic panoramic picture. You can see clearly the area around Queenstown. Great colors and sharpness too. Best regards.

i really lie panoramics in general and I feel your pain about the pixelation. This is a good job, although the whole thing seems just slightly TOO blue for me, but it has a great feeling of space.

Very beautiful landscape you captured over there. I think I shot the similar view when I was on the way from Lake Wanaka to Queenstown. Love the view in NZ very much.
