Photo of the Week: What about that Avatar?

I’m often asked where the picture of me in the blog header and my Twitter, Facebook, etc. avatar is from. It was taken from the Kia Trail near Mount Cook Village on the South Island of New Zealand. I was out on the open trail heading towards Kea Point. To this day it’s one my favorite photos and travel memories. πŸ™‚

Mount Cook Village, South Island, New Zealand

You can read more about my time on the trail and around Mount Cook Village in A Few Hours in Mount Cook Village and Photo of the Week: The Road to Mount Cook Village.

  1. Nice to find out the story behind the avatar! Those mountains are so beautiful… Maybe I’ll visit one day.

  2. And now we have: the rest of the story!

  3. Nice to see the photo close up. Amazing shot and well worthy of avatar status.
