NZ in photoscenery, part 2: South Island

Recommended Posts

We depart from Dunedin on the east coast and head south until we reach the southern tip of the island. From there we fly north-west towards Queenstown and then it’s on to Mount Cook. The plane is the freeware Restauravia Fouga Magister. This flight was done in the new P3D v4.4 and as before all weather has been switched off for more clarity

Parked at Dunedin Intern.

By now we have reached the southern part and are here over the Awarua Bay and Tiwai Point with Stewart Island in the distance

On the west coast near Resolution Island. Here it becomes obvious that this freeware has a few watermasking issues. But I’m not really complaining, it’s free!

Approaching Queenstown, here are some more watermasking issues visible

I like the way the scenery is being mirrored in the water

Queenstown with the ORBX airport and The Remarkables mountain range. It is not so obvious in these smaller pictures, but the clarity and sharpness of the scenery even in the distance is in v4.4 even better than in 4.3. You just look at your computer screen and say: WOW!

Lovely shots! Your view of Mt Cook and the Tasman Glacier has been shared by many a well-heeled heli-hiker 🙂

I know one's schedule is a crowded one, next visit do turn left and fly up the fiord of Milford Sound!
