Stirling Falls


Stirling Falls is a spectacular glacier-fed waterfall that cascades 146m down the cliff face into Milford Sound, New Zealand. I loved the way the spray created intricate spider web-like ripples across the seawater at the base. The bow of the boat nosed in so close to the falls that I had trouble preventing my lens from clouding over, but was delighted to have captured this ethereal image.
