Milford Mariner, New Zealand, 2001

The Milford Mariner, a replica of a traditional New Zealand coastal trading scow, sails through a blue-gray fog in Milford Sound.

The sound, part of Fiordland National Park on the southwest coast of New Zealand's South Island, is surrounded by towering, jagged peaks strewn with waterfalls. The Mariner takes tours right up to (and sometimes underneath) the frigid cascades.
