What a treat! On approach to Queenstown (ZQN) from Auckland (AKL) and flying low over the same snowboarding area, Cardrona, where I would be photographing New Zealand's first offical WorldCup Snowboarding contest a week later. Yes, that road to the mountaintop is as scary as it looks.

Great shot! I love this part of the world, and have skied Cardrona many times. The road up to Treble Cone is even scarier though! ;)

Great shot but by the looks of the engine i'd say its a 737 300 not an airbus :) :p

Magnificant! Trust me, that road is nothing by rural NZ (esp the South island) standards according to my native South Islander work colleagues' words.

Nice and unique picture, when I saw the thumbnail I thought it is a shot of the "Grossglockner-Hochalpenstrasse" (Grossglockner High Alpine Road) here in Austria - looks exactly the same! 5*

What a perfect shot here, nothing could be better. If I am not mistaken, the movie "The Italian Job" (one of my favorites) was filmed with this slope in the scene!
