Daily Photo – Shadows of the Southern Alps

If you get out to Glenorchy early enough in the morning, you can see these amazing shadows from one set of mountains projected across the lake onto another set of mountains. One of the more stunning things about the mountains around Lake Wakatipu is how they have very steep faces jutting out of the water. It’s basically the same mountain shapes as in the fjords not too far away. If I’m not mistaken, all of this used to be a fjord at the beginning of the most recent ice age.
