Boat and Falls--Milford Sound (January 30, 2010)

Another picture from Milford Sound, one in which I'm attempting to demonstrate what I couldn't in the previous post--scale and angle, as it were; the way that cliff goes straight up and the trees dig in anyway, helping to hold it together but possibly tearing it apart at the same time.

On the left you can see one of the skeinlike waterfalls that dress the walls of this channel. With the wind they tended to spray sideways, skewed off-course by the gusts because they were tenuous enough to bend in the blast, having such a long, practically vertical drop.
