I am working on a number of pages on my site on the Milford Road and Milford Sound in south-west New Zealand - the eighth wonder of the world according to Kipling and certainly one of the most amazing places I have ever visited.
I took the photo below in March 2014. Imagine my surprise when I came across the photo below mine (taken in the 1920) on the brilliant Alexander Turnbull Library site in NZ.
The composition of both photos - completely by chance or an ingrained photographic aesthetic that has changed little in 90 years - is almost identical and the scene is little chaged.
Even the detail of the rocks on the ridge lines is remarkably similar attesting to the hardness of the rock and slow pace of erosion even in this area with over 6 metres of rainfall a year.
