Weekly Photo Challenge: H2O ( Milford Sound )

This week’s photo challenge is H2O.

This is what you see from a launch at Milford Sound, New Zealand.img_0044

An avalanche of water comes crashing down!

Picture was taken by my sister-in-law to whom credit is due.

 

Flora and Fauna of Milford Sound

I am amazed at the number of rare species that one can found at Milford Sound, New Zealand.IMG_0032

Here are some photos taken by my wife during her travels last year.IMG_0042

Many of these species are unknown and unheard of by me.IMG_0009

They look amazing and make me all the more appreciative of the wonders of nature.IMG_0018

One just asks why such plants exist.

Milford Sound ( On a Cloudy Day)

Just wonder whether Milford Sound has always been cloudy.IMG_0051

Maybe, the only question is whether it is overcast, partially covered, dark clouds on a rainy day  or white clouds on a good day.

Milford Sound vs Three Gorges

Here are two photos which talk to each other.

The top one was taken at Milford Sound in New Zealand, while the second one was taken in Three Gorges.IMG_0027

Both were taken on a boat.

They are very similar in composition but they convey very different moods.DSCF6173

The sea at Milford Sound was a bit choppy and the scene a bit dark.

I rather like the Three Gorges one which depicts sunset and calm waters.
