The Monday Blues...

Here's another image from our recent trip to the South Island, this time one from Lake Matheson which is located just outside Fox on the west coast.

Lake Matheson is famous for its early morning lake reflections. Within about 30mins of me shooting this (and many more images), ripples started to form on the surface and totally destroyed the reflection. A magical place, but you do get a lot of tourists there with the same idea in mind!

The snow covered mountains you can see on the right of the frame form part of the Southern Alps - Horokoau/Mt Tasman (left) and Aoraki/Mt Cook (right). Mt Tasman is NZ's second highest mountain at 3497m, and Mt Cook is in first place at 3724m.
