A morning that I won’t forget after having a very different sunset the day before and the sunrise the day after was very amazing. The cloud formations are absolutely out of this world on that morning and I never experienced such event like this before.
Location: Lake Tekapo, Southland, New Zealand
Camera: Nikon D800 + Nikon 70-200mm F/2.8 II + a bunch of filters
i was thinking if I should drive out to the dunes or not, i had to drive iurie and another friend to the lake to catch this sunrise… i wanted to shoot something else but that had to wait after this image, I had the best light here last winter….
another possibility presented itself this time with still water on the shore so I went in to shoot at the last minute. worth the decision as the light did not last long at the plains due to some middle cloud.
this image was taken a couple of inches from the water and up close on some small pcs of rock along the shore and is a stacked multiple focus image.
Lake Tekapo is part of the Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve. This is a gold-rated dark sky reserve, in recognition of the quality of the almost light pollution-free skies of the Mackenzie Basin in New Zealand. I recently shot this image of the galactic core of our Milky Way rising behind the mountains and reflecting in Lake Tekapo. copyright 2014 | Mark Gee | theartofnight.com
