Para-Para-Paradise

Photo taken on the famous and ridiculously picturesque road to Milford Sound, New Zealand.

I have “Paradise” by Coldplay playing in my head.

When she was just a girl
She expected the world
But it flew away from her reach so
She ran away in her sleep
And dreamed of
Para-para-paradise, Para-para-paradise, Para-para-paradise
Every time she closed her eyes

Coldplay

  1. Ridiculously picturesque seems to be an understatement.

    This is a real beauty Rey. I recommend everyone click through to the largest sizes to appreciate the detail and the delicateness of the clouds coming off the peaks.

  3. Rey,

    Another Rey Spadoni winner!

    When I was a kid, we drove thru the Alps from Switzerland to Italy, and I remember the grandeur and magnificence of those mountains. This image recaptures that grandeur…excellent!

    Paradise indeed. And I think it is the detail of the field before the mountains that make it extraordinary.

      Thanks for the comments everyone. Interestingly (and probably tellingly), this was the only photo I took using the tripod I lugged 10,000 miles from home. Lesson learned…

    If the lesson was “it was worth it”, then I agree :0)
