New Year’s Day 2014, 5.30pm from the Routeburn Falls Hut on the Routeburn Track, Fiordland. It had been drizzling and misty all day, but cleared to reveal this magnificent view over the Routeburn Flats. The rainbow really was this vibrant, certainly the most spectacular rainbow I have ever seen. It lasted for quite a while, and the Hut emptied while people photographed it. This was only my second of the Great Walks, having done the Milford a few days before, starting on Christmas Day. I can now see what all the fuss is about – the scenery is truly breathtaking. Every one of us lucky enough to be living in this beautiful country should get out and experience these magnificent places!

Ian, you can thank me for persuading you to take the big camera and not the point and shoot. What a great walk, I envy you.
