Photographer's Note

A picture of the New Zealand Alps.

Taken from the window of a plane, looking down at the snow covered mountains below.

In a situation like this, I am not inclined to use too much zoom, as I feel a macro view of the wide area (eg. probably a couple of square miles below) would be a more worthy picture.

If a plane travels at 800km/h it is only seconds that you have to capture scenes like this when they present themselves.

Dense cloud cover in such a cold environment is also a conern.

The route of the plane was Sydney to Christchurch. Going in winter, in daylight, with a window seat, is recommended!
