Aoraki, a few photos of the cloud piercer

The other morning at the end of our holiday down south we drove back from Wanaka to Christchurch via the McKenzie Basin. I spent the first four years of my life in these parts and it has remained very special to me. It is the best drive in the world, over the Lindis, then past Omarama till Aoraki appears at about the same time as you pass the Salmon farm. We struck it lucky this time with sunrise and a few tunes of Dire Straits to add to the atmosphere...
