The sun had just started to rise over the fjords edges as the long white clouds and mist started to clear. I was standing at the bow of the boat waiting for the light and the right moment. Suddenly, the light ran down the bottom edge of the clouds and I was able to capture this fleeting play of reflections and shadows.
The Doubtful Sound is located on the South island of New Zealand. The Sound is a combination of fjords, waterfalls, rainforests and islands. We stayed over night in the sound on a cruise ship during our visit there. That evening we had a moonless, cloud covered, black night, there were no stars, no city lights and it was eerily quiet. The ship seemed to just hover in a vast, black nothingness. It was one of the best experiences that I will always treasure.
