Hey guys it’s been a while since I’ve done one of this, but I’m back with another edition of “XT-2 in…” and this time it’s in Milford Sound! Get ready to see mountains and lots of it, let’s get started!
The day started for us in Queenstown, we waited for the bus to pick us up at the station. It’s a 3-4 hour bus ride to Milford Sounds… H’OH BOY…
Views from the bus ride, not bad eh? I was amazed by the landscape here in New Zealand, the mountains are everywhere!
This trip made New Zealand one of my favourite countries that I’ve ever visited. A random shot of the landscape when the bus pulled over for us to give our legs a stretch.
The last stretch we had before we head to our destination.I crossed the road to grab this shot. I wanted to use the bus as a scale, the mountain was colossal!
The weather wasn’t on our side, it was raining and foggy through our cruise. I prefer it this way though, it creates a moody atmosphere for the images.
It was so foggy i couldn’t see that far of a distance, I really like it though it has a cinematic tone to it.
Here’s Hillorie outside the deck with the rain and fog. It’s so epic, and did you guys noticed how it’s only her outside? That’s because the tourists didn’t want to get themselves or their camera gears wet. Luckily for us we got that WEATHER RESISTANT CAMERA (XT2) with the WR LENS! (FUJINON XF 16-55mm F2.8 WR) 🙂
I wished it was a little clearer so I could capture the peak of the fjords. FUN FACT : Our captain said it rains about 320 days out of the year at Milford Sounds! THE MORE YOU KNOW!
One of the many waterfalls here at Milford Sounds! And look at that tourist brave enough to whip his camera out in this weather! I love this shot, it’s so beautiful and the fjord is so massive!
A herd of seals through this cruise! They were just lounging on the big rocks, this was a rare sight to see!
More shots of waterfalls.
One last shot before we dock.
Okay guys I hope you guys enjoyed the images of Milford Sounds, it was an awesome experience, one I will remember for the rest of my life. I’m in love with this country, it’s so scenic and everywhere I turn it’s a photo opportunity. I highly recommend you guys make New Zealand your next travel destination! Make it priority!
See you next time!
All the photos were shot on the Fujifilm X-T2 with the Fujinon XF 16-55mm F2.8 lens and was later post processed in Adobe Lightroom
