Photographer's Note

...here I am again with more photos from my "Once in a lifetime" trip to N.Z.
Here we are flying over Mt. Tasman on our way to Mount Cook .
What you see is MacKenzie Basin . At the horizon you can catch a glimpse of turquise Lake Pukaki , in the middle of the photo - a bit to the right hand side - is the glacial lake with floating icebergs !
The glacial lake is up to 150 meters deep !
At the bottom to the laft you can see the end of Tasman Glacier.
Tasman Glacier is 29 kilometers long , up to 4 kilometers wide , and up to 800 meters deep !!

Approximately 14.000 years ago , the ice that covered this area from the last Ice Age began its retreat and created a dramatic landscape, subtle ever-changing hues and air of exceptional purity !

There is one more posting from this special place in the workshop !And my next posting will be photos of breathtaking Mount Cook :o)
