Mount Cook in post sunset glow approximately 30 km to the North.

I waited to capture this scene for 2 days and while the light lived up to my expectations, the clouds, however, had other ideas. You win some, you lose some, I guess.

Typically, in my captures, I blur the movement of water with longer exposures, but, to try and compensate for the lack of brilliant colour in the clouds, I thought I would freeze the movement in the water with a relatively short exposure and try for some dynamism.

Moments after capturing this image, the orange blaze disappeared and the bank of cloud from the west rolled in to blanket the scene and dropped a fresh dusting of snow.

I made this image while standing in the Tasman River on a freezing cold evening. When I started driving back to camp, the thermometer in the car read -7 degrees.

The 5D Mark II is still a formidable imaging machine. I look forward to going back this winter (only a couple of months away) with the 5D Mark III and my RZ67.
