Milford Sound
New Zealand

Photographer’s Notes:

I wish I could say that I was the first person to take panoramic photo gear to Milford Sound, but I’m far from that. This is likely one of the most photographed places in New Zealand.
Before I arrived in the area I had no idea where I’d be taking photos from. I thought maybe the boat cruise might be a good place to start, but it was too late in the day when we finally made it up the crazy road that takes you into the area.
The weather was nice the day we arrived, so we set about exploring the area trying to find the spot to take photos from. We were disappointed to see that the track around to the waterfall was closed. If you look towards the sun and left a little in this photo then you can just see the spray coming from it. It was possible to walk out to the end of the breakwater so we had a look out there and I decided the light was pretty good and the clouds were quite interesting. I asked Ruqayah if she wanted to be in this photo as I wanted the viewer of the picture to be able to imagine themselves here… sitting looking at Mitre Peak…
I have various other ideas for spots to get to in this area for more photos, but no concrete plans on how or when this well happen yet… So maybe watch this space…

More About Polynesia

Forever has always existed.In the mythology of Oceanic peoples, it's been there along with Darkness and the Sea.The Earth came from the efforts of Old Spider, who soared over the endless sea and found a giant clam. She opened it and crawled inside, finding a snail there to share the space with her. She set the snail in the west and made it into the Moon to shed some light into the darkness. Together they raised up the top of the clam shell to make the sky, pushing it until it was wide open.Then they pushed the bottom half of the clam shell in the other direction to make the ground. The earth was called Papa and the sky Ranga. These are the two first beings who created all the flowers, plants, trees and animals on the islands, and fish in the sea.They celebrated all their open space by making as many beautiful creatures as they could imagine, but they still remained separated by the work of the original Old Spider. Each night, Ranga weeps for his beloved Papa earth, and this is where the morning dew comes from.Polynesia means "many islands" and when you see these pictures, you will want to visit all of them. To make it simple, the islands sit in a triangle described by connecting Hawaii, New Zealand and Easter Island.There are over a thousand of these islands of surfer's paradise in the central and south Pacific Ocean. It's stunning. Look at the color of the water here! And the sunset... these speak for themselves. Could you be happy in this little house? How about some reef diving inside a lagoon?Put this one in full screen and don't come back. Love, 360.Text by Steve Smith.
