Sound of Silence

The clouds are hanging low, shrouding the mountains. Sometimes I can see patches of blue on my way to the Fjords of Southland.

The road winds its way westwards …

N-14-2178

… through the wilderness.

N-14-2188

N-14-2140

N-14-2150

I pass at a lake …

N-14-2147

…. and moss-covered trees …

N-14-2219

N-14-2238

N-14-2252

N-14-2249

N-14-2225

… on my way up, where the mist thickens …

N-14-2217

… until there seems to be nothing else.

When I reach my destination …

N-14-2274

… water pours down the mountains, hardly making a sound …

N-14-2283

N-14-2273

N-14-2278

… and trees cling to bare rock.

N-14-2302

I join the cruise …

N-14-2277

… that follows the fjord …

N-14-2297

… to the sea.

N-14-2319

N-14-2355

Then the wind blows …

N-14-2362

… the clouds away.

N-14-2320

On our way back …

N-14-2373

N-14-2381

N-14-2385

N-14-2418

… seals linger on the rocks, …

N-14-2432

… dolphins frolic in the water …

N-14-2534

N-14-2533

… and we get really close to a waterfall.

N-14-2456

N-14-2459

It is still silent, but things look different now.

N-14-2557

N-14-2552
