Day 7 - Surf and Turf
The nice thing about an island is you can see glaciers in the mountains in the morning and the surf crashing on the coast in the afternoon.
I awake to a blue sky and sun. There are light feathery clouds high overhead and puffy white ones lower sporadically clinging to the edges of the mountains. It is a perfect day for photographing glaciers and snow capped mountains. Yesterday it would have been impossible to see the snow high in the mountains. I photograph both Fox Glacier and Franz Joesef Glacier and then continue up the west coast on highway 6.
Eventually I end up at the Punakaiki (Pancake) Rocks. The waves are crashing against the rock formations sending spray high into the air. The rocks look like stacks of pancakes. There is a blow hole the regular spouts water. It is definitely a place you must visit if you ever get the chance.
