Number 37: Aoraki and Horokoau looming over dusk

Mount Tasman, Mount Cook (Aoraki), near Lake Matheson, Fox Glacier Township, New Zealand South Island

The quiet still moments when you’re aware there’s little to no sound; birds and animals seem to know how to observe the end of the day. It’s the last light of the day, as the final set of photons stream 150 million kilometres to their destination. Those packets of light finally reach New Zealand. They bounce off the two tallest peaks in the country. Above are Mount Tasman (Horokoau) and Mount Cook (Aoraki) at left and right, respectively, in the southern Alps. A full photo-gallery appears here.

I made the photo above at sunset on 22 July 2012 at Lake Matheson. This post appears on Fotoeins WIDE at
