New Zealand Landscape Collection - South Island Mountain Daisy

During the summer, my brother's friend took this picture while they were on a hiking holiday. I was staying with him in Christchurch when the adventure party arrived back home exhilarated and satisfied with their journey. Their excitement reminded me of a similar experience. The valleys of the Southern Alps of New Zealand are magnificent, and you cannot help but feel uplifted. They kindly said yes when I asked them if I could ask my friend to paint this image for a tea towel.

What I feel when I see this scenery is wonder at so many elements of nature working so perfectly together?the delicate almost insignificance of wild flowers in a backdrop of a deep valley with towering hills. Being there is magical, but you can?t stay; you have to keep moving.
