Thought for the day….”Life Always offers you a second chance. It’s called tomorrow”.
A video instead of a photo today…the lakeside town of Wanaka on the South Island of New Zealand. A short (10 minute) drone video taken in perfect weather. Starts over the town of Wanaka then along the lakeside at Glendu Bay and finally over Dublin Bay. New Zealand at its best. Sit back and enjoy !
and another photo from the archives…an Autumn day in Glendu Bay, South Island, New Zealand (same place as featured in the video above). The glaciers visible in the background are in the Mt. Aspiring National Park, with Mt. Aspiring (3033m) visible on the skyline to the right. The mountains are part of the Southern Alps.

Another New Zealand photo today, and Mount Aspiring which rises to 3033m. It is often called the Matterhorn of the South, due to its similarity. The first recorded ascent took place in 1909, although now it is frequently climbed as it is not too technical. It lies at the junction of 3 glaciers, the Volta, Bonar and Therma Glaciers. The tallest mountain in New Zealand is Mount Cook, at 3753m.

Up in the Southern Alps of New Zealand for the photo today and to the glaciers around Mount Aspiring. The photo is taken from a light aircraft and shows the glacier plunging down into the valley. If you look closely at the rocks on the right side of the glacier, then you may be able to make out a red building. This is Colin Todd Hut, used as a base for climbers attempting to climb the 3033m Mt. Aspiring mountain. The photo was taken in late summer, hence the lack of snow around the glacier.
