Coronet Peak is near Queenstown, South Island of NZ. Elevation: 1649m. This area is covered in snow in winter months (June July August, in the southern hemisphere). Taken from the ski chairlift terminus. There is a lake on the right, complete with reflection.
The brown grass on the foreground hill has been burnt by the cold Autumn nights & frost.

ONe of your obviously hard to gain PoVs. Well worth the climb for this. Rather remiscent of Lord of the Rings scenery. Very strange looking mountain you're standing on. Rather disaturated colours inthe distance.

Hi Chris, this is a beautiful view of a part of New-Zealand, the froegorund has such a nice warm tone, and the dots of clouds give a really high impression. Very nice, and very old as well. ;-)

nice high PoV to get a far ranging view, also helped here by the very good DoF, the first range with the warm colors is a ray of sun !
Wow, 1981, I was then busy trying to get something usable out of the school...
Have a nice day,

Quel décor grandiose. Beaucoup de profondeur dans cette super présentation, avec ces nuages bas, ces crêtes ocres et ce lac que l'on aperçoit bien dans la vallée.

A wonderful mountains landscape Chris, the brown colours on the foreground and the white clouds above the green valleys give also the very depth here, it panoramic image make the photo very great!
nwoehnl (122) 2005-02-12 14:28
Wonderful rugged scenery, Chris. The low clouds hugging the mountain slopes are a plus, and the greenery in the valley provides nice complementary colors to the brownish hillsides. Beautiful shot from your archives.
bpelvan (3798) 2005-02-12 14:52
Image of the passage from one world to another. Perfect capture of the scenery. The small lake looks invisible due to the reflection. Very very good shot. Thanks for sharing Chris...
weswang (18223) 2005-02-12 18:45
This is a beautiful picture. I have never seen a mountain with the color like the one in the foreground before. The color and the contrast with all other colors in the background are outstanding. Thanks for sharing.

rabani (9645) 2005-02-17 5:18
People in and around my archipelago, is starting to appreciate higher ground and the mountains, after the tsunami and what an undersea earthquake could do to the sea. With the green landscape and the craggy peak, in a small way, this is something like a Moses View, from his Ark.
martou (1660) 2006-05-12 21:48
it's a very spectacular landscape, I like the different colors of the mountain and the valley, I hope I can see this country one day, for time I dream with you're photos,
persis (128) 2007-02-19 2:49
This shot is Excellent
the first Mount which is brown has helped you to show green Mountains better! and those clouds are amazing
