Wednesday Wallpaper | The Road to Mount Cook, Autumn

July 10th, 2013 at 1:34 pm by Todd Sisson
Aoraki / Mount Cook from Peter's Lookout in Autumn, Canterbury, South Island, New Zealand - stock photo, canvas, fine art print

Mount Cook and SH 80 to the Hermitage – from Peter’s lookout. New Zealand landscape .

I really should post one of my images again soon, but I keep finding nice ones by Sarah during my travels through the archive.

The beauty of this image is that up-and-coming landscapers like @Beautox and @FredInTheGrass can’t replicate it – some wandering greeny task-force have bowled the infestation of wilding larches that give this scene its Nordic Autumnal vibe….

Cheers – Todd

    We’ve all been there and taken that photo, but your wife certainly took it well!

    You must be a ‘mainlander’ RRM. I have been unable to time visits to the area to coincide with the
    view Sarah has captured.
    Thanks for putting me along side Beautox Todd – quite sure any comparison would be coincidental.

    I’m guessing this had been photoshopped?

    Kudos for not referring to Mt Cook by it’s bullshit made-up Maori ‘name’!

    I thought the mad Regional Councils just killed wild pines
    but it seems they are extending their reach,

    Hey Todd – I’m more than a landscapist ;) I can work a whole bunch of flashes and umbrellas. I’m curious if that shot in cath cove used a flash? I’m pretty sure Trey doesn’t own any flashes that aren’t built into his cameras..Anyway, I find it too easy to just take south island pictures. Pretty much aim your camera anywhere and you get a shot like this. Now if you were to come up to the north and take some good shots, then I’d be impressed. Oh shit. You did ;)
