Milford Sound
New Zealand

Dylan and I recently came back from a 3-week trip to New Zealand's South Island. It was our first real holiday since Charlotte arrived and we were quite looking forward to it. I was a bit nervous about travelling with an 8-month old baby, but she turned out to be absolutely fantastic as we dragged her out for sunrise and sunset almost everyday.

On this night Dylan was not with us as he did an overnight trek on the Routeburn Track. It had been raining all day until suddenly at 4pm it ceased. The rain caused a multitude of small waterfalls to magically appear, cascading off the mountains around us. I was trying to feed Charlotte dinner in our accommodation and watching the sky very closely. As soon as she finished I rushed out with her and tried to capture what was left of the light - seems that I misjudged how long it takes to get a child fed, strapped into a carrier, covered with mesh (so sandflies don't bite her) and then lugging all the photographic gear to the right location.

Thankfully there was just enough interesting clouds catching the light to make my efforts worthwhile. Bowen Falls on the right hand side of the image is not normally so visible but there was so much water from the rain it was roaring.

Thanks to my hubby for helping me process the image!
