Morning Touches Mitre Peak

Mitre Peak is the iconic sight in Milford Sound, so-
named because to the first explorers it resembled a
Catholic bishop's peaked hat, or "mitre." 

The morning was very chilly; we were permitted on the
foredeck, but photography was limited both because
the ship could not approach the shore and because of
dawn darkness still enveloping the Sound's lower cliffs.
