Photographer's Note

After leaving Franz Josef Glacier we headed further down the west coast to Fox township. Instead of visiting the glacier here, we turned right onto the Cook Flat Rd to take the turn off to Lake Matheson. Around this lake is a lovely walk through some fine Kiwi bush territory and at the far end of the lake are these unforgettable postcard views of one of the most famous panoramas in NZ.

The two mountains here are the two highest in Australasia. Mt. Tasman (3497m) on the left and Mt. Cook (3755m) on the right are known to the Maori as Rarakiora and Aoraki respectively.

With such fine weather on my visit, I decided to post my take on this popular view; cropped, sharpened and resized for the web. Enjoy.
