Canon EOS 60D | EF 15-85 @31mm | 1/640s | f/6.3 | ISO 400

After a long, but very awesome trip to Tahiti and then to New Zealand, one of our last stops was Milford Sound. I had seen pictures before of this amazing fjord but was not quite prepared for the sheer magnitude of this place.

Unfortunately as we arrived the weather was not the best for photography, being mostly gray and overcast. That really did not diminish what a great place it was though, and we decided that we definitely wanted to take one of the boat tours through the sound.

As we slowly moved below these massive sea cliffs, the weather began to break and the sun started shining through causing these amazing rays to fall directly between the mountains.

This image is actually made up of two shots, the main shot and another of the sky to bring some of the highlights back a bit.

Stunning. You've captured the scale of the scene beautifully, and of course, that light is to die for.

I didn't see many landscapes photographs with B&W , I think because it's very hard to get the correct shot that will match b&w , specially with the lighting , however this photograph is relay getting inside me , I love it !

I agree, BW is hard to work with especially for landscapes, however, I often times find myself with a shot that I think is great, but the colors themselves are dull. And in those cases a good conversion to B&W can really make the image shine! Thanks!
