The early morning start was so worth it....just look at that sky and sunrise.
The Qantas First Class Lounge helped with the gentle waking process.
A very civilized way to start the day.....
Unfortunately like the fisherman's tale, I reminisce about the shot I missed. Once airborne, I was just about to snap at a perfect view of the Melbourne CBD, rising up out of the early morning cloud. Like they were floating.....mountains out of the mist.... when the Captain decided to do a sharp right hand turn and whoosh.....there they were gone.
Its probably best, because I may have been disappointed by the actual result.
This way it remains a perfect shot in my head.
Passing over the South Island and on the way to the North Island towards Wellington.
I'm about to dash off for the day. A full day ahead planned, which I'll no doubt tell you about at some stage.
Enjoy your weekend everyone.....x
