Waiho River emmerges from the meltwater of the Franz Josef Glacier, in the Southern Alps of New Zealands' South Island. Taken through a perplex window about 4.30 pm from a light plane that actually lands on the glacier.
In the distance is the coastline & the Tasman Sea.

I can't help thinking about Lord of the Rings when I see these New Zealand shots of your. THe scenery is really quite striking and unique. This looks like a fantasy, and nicely set against the light.

Incredible light, Strange curves here, I am agree with R Gatward, it should be the frontier with another world.

Encore une photo digne de National Geographic ou de Géo (chez nous en France).
Les mots sont inutiles, il suffit de regarder !
Very well done.

Yes Chris, a very spectacular image of Waiho River emmerges of the meltwater, the white lines in the river, give a great depth, well seen Chris!
Greetings from Belgium.

An impressive landscape and view on the glacier. Only after a while we realize the size of the thing and than we realize how massive it is! Good placement of the horizon and use of the curve made by the glacier.

The light in this composition is super.Excellent colors in this beautiful scenery.Very well done Chris.

Oh - I like this landscape - almost unreal - that river looks very special indeed - The fine colours of the sunset gives a certain atmosphere - thanks Chris for bringing us around this place.
weswang (18223) 2005-02-18 14:49
What a view! This is an incredible scene. So much different on the two side of the river banks. Without seeing it, it is hard to believe that the river is getting narrower when it approaches to the sea.
Very nice shot.
chinchini (31529) 2005-02-18 15:02
Très grande vue sur la rivière. Les couleurs et les reflets sont superbes. Le ciel est étrange avec ces couleurs. Bien fait !

Very nice aerial view of the glacial runoff, Chris. The water patterns in the afternoon light make an amazing graphical pattern amidst the pristine seaside landscape. Good result for a shot taken from the plane.
avigur_11 (22069) 2005-02-18 17:17
This glacier looks almost alive and flowing with the white veins and the mud-color. The color of the Tasman sea and the sky are contrastic but harmonic at the same time. Beautiful shot, Chris.
anakin (2775) 2005-02-18 18:25
Really good view, great composition, the water is really nice
alford (3961) 2005-02-19 0:57
A great landscape shot, Chris. The wayward and bright flow of the river is really a wonderful sight from above, it contrasts well with the green surroundings. It's nice to see how the river is connected to it's final destination, the sea. Thanks for sharing, and good work; it isn't easy taking shots from a plane. rgds.
cessy (13647) 2005-02-19 3:17
it's really fantastic, Chris. Indah sekali
the river with the light really stunning.
oochappan (22043) 2005-02-19 10:12
The splendid harmonious warm coloring really attracts you to this captures Chris, a joy for the eye ! I like it a lot !

Nice work. I like the L shape of water. It create a good composition and DOF for this picture.
JayP (381) 2005-02-20 15:17
Chris, nice composure from a difficult position to take pictures. Plan to take the same picture in September this year if the weather is kind.
MLINES (12516) 2006-01-14 14:05
Chris, Unusual photo here of the ribbon effect in these rivers across the Canterbury plain. Very effective how you have got the reflection off the water just right to give this wonderful effect. Great part of the world. TFS.
