In a way, I would like to change with you: it's spring here, and I like autumn and winter so much! So this picture is welcome to me, moreover it shows a wonderful mountain scenery. It's a simple, yet very pleasant picture, with a delightful mountaineer atmosphere.
From my point of view, sun flares in the sky are not a disturbing element.
What a wonderful photo of your holiday to share with us. I think seeing a scene like this in real life must be an awesome experience. The Creator of All is just wonderful to have formed and shaped the beautiful nature all around us to admire and appreciate, and this photo of yours is such proof of His Mighty Creation. This is really a magnificent landscape view, with a mix of blue sky, snowy covered mountains and greenery in the foreground. Thanks for sharing and enjoy your day.
The diagonal segmentation is the most attractive feature of this wonderful mountainscape from your country, Janice.
The contrasts are rich and beautiful.
Late Sir Ed Hillary must have done his practice climbs on these mountains in the first half of the 20th century before his first ever ascent of Mt. Everest.
I had the honour of interacting with him twice -- once in Khumbu region which was second home to him in Nepal and once during a conference in New Delhi.
For me, these lovely mountains you have shown today carry a lot of value for me from that point of view.

Just magnificent this view. Marvellous light comditions and nice composition with the diagonal created by the snowless mountain in the front. Must have been great to travel there.

Very beautiful landscape. Would really be tempting to book a trip. Very nice colours and composition.
Very beautiful mountains. There was good light.
Must be great to experience this scenery. I'm a bit puzzled about my good balance though:-)(kidding)

Ok, the rugby can wait a moment for this one. Congratulations with your team. The Chiefs really surprised one and all and just maybe they've actually done us a great favour. I mean who would have though (except for you of course) that the Chiefs would clobber the unbeaten Crusaders.
Now about the photo, just marvellous. The contrasting two mountains, one full of snow and one with lush vegetation, fit well on the composition. One forming a triangle at the left bottom corner and the other lying on the bottom 2/3 of the horizontal plane and the lovely blue sky filling the rest of the image. The details are nice and sharp and the colours are natural. The little bit of sun flare that you mentioned are hardly noticeable and barely of any distraction. A lovely mountainscape and it sure look like a lovely part of your country so I am sure we are still going to see some excellent postings of your holiday over the next couple of weeks. Bring them on.
Ok, now I have to run, because it's the Sharks vs the Brumbies and Ryno is screaming I'm going to miss the kick-off.

Beautiful alpine scene. Interestingly enough, the highest mountains in NZ are about the same height as the tallest mountains in the state of Oregon, USA and kinda look similar. I suspect Oregon's taller mountains are a lot more spread out than NZ's.
