    Super Inspiring – stunning!

  • Its a wonderful mountain from any vantage point but this was a special treat – would love to do more aerial work sometime (when the budget allows! ).

    It’s got a great ridge line on it. Beautiful capture Alex.

  • Many thanks Michael, has to be my favourite Mountain in New Zealand – the conditions on this flight were great but it was a little bumpy at times!

    Superb. I am interested to know what type of aircraft you took this lovely image from – Airline or local flight??

  • This was taken from a little 4 seater sight-seeing plane from Wanaka airfield – it started clouding up by the time we got to Mt Earnslaw en route to Milford Sound and quite bumpy too – made getting pictures more of a challenge!

    Thank you for the flight information Alex. I am proposing to stop at Wanaka during another self-drive tour next autumn and look forward (aspiring) to seeing this great mountain.

  • Wanaka is a great place to base yourself for a few days John. Also try to get up to Glenorchy at the head of Lake Wakatipu as the countryside & scenery is spectacular.
