Photographer's Note

This was taken from my helicopter flight from Queenstown to Milford Sound.

From Kinloch at the end of Lake Wakitipu we headed into the mountain range and followed the famous Routeburn walking track and then over to Hollyford which is about half way between Kinloch and Milford Sound.

From Hollyford we followed the river and then through a narrow opening between the Darren mountains which opened up to this wonderful view of Lake Marian.
Lake Marian is in a hanging valley, formed by glacial action. There is a walking track from the Hollyford road but it is only for the fit and the adventurist, not an easy 3 hour walk from what I read.

We flew over the lake and then a hair raising ascent up over the snow capped mountains and into Milford Sound.
