[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Arthurs Pass, named after the pioneer Arthur Dobson, is the main route across the Southern Alps, between Christchurch in the East, and Greymouth, on the West Coast, and is well known for its ski fields and the Kea that are often at roadside locations there.
It is well into winter now and the mountains are finally covered in a good layer of snow.
This shot was taken about two weeks ago, after the first of the snow had fallen, looking east towards Mount Rolleston, from the road near Otira.

Hope you like the view.

Hi Steve,
Wonderful shot of this mammoth mountain range and the green forest. The snow laden peaks look awesome against the blue azure sky. Excellent POV to capture this splendid ambience and a superb place to be in. New Zealand is a beautiful country and you are presenting it in all its glory through your shots. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hi Steve,
Yes I do like the view. I also like this photograph of it.
Well done,

Hi Steve, lovely capture here with those snow capped mountains. I am seriously thinking of planning a 6 week trip to Australia and New Zealand next March/April. I wonder is that a good time to visit New Zealand. Anyhow, very nice work.
