Marlborough Sounds Allports Island




Sky Watch meme.
The glassy waters of the Marlborough Sounds near Allports Island, with a long white cloud hanging over the land.
Allports Island is an uninhabitable Island bird Sanctuary, in the Queen Charlotte Sound..
Do look at all the other great skies.

Hi from just over the Straits in Windy Welly. I love this photo. I have so many I have taken in the Sounds. I am one lucky girl - the twice I have sailed there I have had stunning weather. Have a great weekend.

I've watched your slide show. Never thought New Zealand was THAT beautiful.
I saw a rerun of Lord of The Ring yesterday. It doesn't give Your beautiful country true credit.
Your pictures are more variate and more impressive.
A piece of heaven on earth?

Is the bird sanctuary only for the birds, or is there a visitor's/birdwatchers area available?

We have included your blog in our guide Around The World.

The guide is both a record of old blogs and a listing of new blogs. Although originally arising from the "City Daily Photo Blog" lists this is an independent publication. Inclusion here does not imply that a blog qualifies for nor is officially a CDPB. Our criteria are that photographs mainly from and related to a specific geographical location (not necessarily a "city" but usually more specific than a whole country or region) are posted at dated intervals (not necessarily daily) and archives are kept which are readily searchable by date.

Please keep us informed of any changes to your details.

Amazing photo! Sea, sky and clouds, you can't get it any better. I like the clouds over the mountains. The comic strip below was also very funny. Thanks for the nice comments on my blog!
