Taken at Lake Wanaka, New Zealand on May 8th, 2015
Following a storm in the Southern Alps I woke to find fresh snow dusting the tops of the mountains above Lake Wanaka. I was there with a photography tour I was leading and we brought our group to the famous Wanaka tree to photograph the sunrise. The post-storm weather was anything but settled and as the rising sun painted gold on the lingering clouds the wind whipping across the lake churned up crashing waves which added to the drama of the moment.
