This photo was taken from our campsite (read spot on the side of the road) which overlooked Mount Cook and the riverbed which flows into Lake Pukaki. It was our 2nd night in the RV and we decided to freedom camp so we could get an epic shot of the sunset over the mountains. Freedom camping is where (if you have a self contained vehicle) you can just find a spot on the side of the road and park it for the night. The entire drive into Mount Cook I was on the lookout for a spot that would yield an epic sunset opportunity for us. My only complain is that I wish I had a telephoto lens for my other camera to get a closer shot of the mountain. Also you can see that It was quite windy as evident by the grass and cloud movement but the colors in the sky were vibrant.
