Inspired by Ross' photo yesterday i decided to post this image.

I am fairly sure that this is looking south - south east down to Lake Tekapo which can just be seen! This image is from my most recent trip. As you can see, the cloud is banking up on the western side of the mountains which it regularly does and which i would later experience the effects of when i began living on the West Coast - the most rain i have ever seen in my life!!!

I have been every so lucky with the clear views of the alps on all of my flights into Christchurch from Melbourne. Though I will never forget the time on my first trip when we actually flew in amongst the alps - at one point we tilted and we were actually looking up at Mt Cook! NO JOKE! I could not believe it!!! (sadly i didn't have my camera ready that time!)
