The Grand landscapes – New Zealand

another FujiX100S landscape shot

mountains grand valleyShot this one while coming down on the mountain after a day Snowboarding at The Remarkables, ski area, just outside of Queenstown. The long windy access road switchbacks it’s way up the side of the mountain, climbing past the trees and above the snowline. The road provided some nice scenic views looking out over the valley below, including Queenstown.

I really liked the side lighting on the foreground mountain and the texture it created. Also the green valley bottom, transitioning to the snowy peaks.

Used a polariser to bring out the deep blue in the sky and help the clouds pop.
