Photo of the Day (4.25.09)

Who said that only landscapes can be considered as “scenery”? Gadling photographer Max Waugh (a.k.a. fiznatty) proves this theory wrong in this beautiful sky shot that he calls “Cloudscape.” He writes, “While stopping to admire the milky blue waters of Lake Pukaki, it was impossible to ignore the funky cloud patterns lingering above. The Central Otago seems like a haven for lenticular clouds, but on this day there were also these long streams of fluffy white. I was noticing hills, peaks and valleys stretching across the sky.”

As Gadling writers Jeremy and Mike continue their “In the Corner of the World” feature detailing their travels through the heart of New Zealand, it seems fitting, that this is my Photo of the Day pick. Though I’ve never been to New Zealand, this photo shows us how it is just as lovely down low as it is up high.

If you have some great travel shots you’d like to share, be sure to upload them to the Gadling pool on Flickr. We might just pick one as our Photo of the Day!
