Doubtful Sound, entrance to Hall Arm, New Zealand

Description: Doubtful Sound was named "Doubtful Harbour" in 1770 by Captain James Cook, who did not enter the inlet as he was uncertain whether it was navigable under sail. It was later renamed Doubtful Sound by whalers and sealers.
Doubtful Sound is the second largest of the 14 fiords in Fiordland National Park and is three times longer and 10 times larger than Milford Sound.
The "shining island" on the photo is Rolla Island - nice contrast with clouds, snow and mountains in shade.
