Wednesday Wallpaper | Winter Sunset On Aoraki / Mt Cook

New Zealand Landscape Photos | spectacular orange sunset Aoraki Mt Cook

Sunset on the summit of Aoraki / Mt Cook, New Zealand. .

Welcome to the most timely Wallpaper Wednesday post in living memory (my memory only spans one month these days).

Having dissed sunset/sunrise images in my outro last week I now present you with a sunset image….

I almost blew the making of this image while indulging in a rare (in my humble opinion) dose of ego-mania. I had been set up for some time waiting for a thick valley fog to clear and provide a glimpse of the summit of Aoraki Mt Cook. While waiting, I got to talking with a couple of Australian photo enthusiasts and was modestly explaining how awesome I was – with my back turned to the mountain…. fortunately, one of the Aussies was sick of my rhetoric and kindly pointed out that the mountain was glowing orange. A frantic ‘practical demonstration’ of my awesome skills ensued. I was really lucky to get this, and one other, sharp shot out of the shoot as every other image was marred by sloppy technique.

Lesson learned. I never talk to Australians now 😉

See you next week.

Cheers – Todd
