The first glow of sunrise touches the side of Mt Cook/Aoraki

One thing I loved about New Zealand was that I didn’t have to get up at 4:30AM and drive/walk for miles to catch a sunrise, this one was about 6:40 from the window of our hotel room. I setup the camera with the Canon 70-200mm f4L IS lens on a tripod at the window before retiring for the night. All I had to do was set the alarm, roll out of bed and crack the curtain a bit to capture the first light on this amazing view of the mountain and the Hooker Valley. I even snuck back to bed for another hour before getting up to do a hike through the Hooker Valley and then later followed by boat ride in the Mueller Glacier Lake.

The image specs for the enthusiasts is 1/15th of second, f7.1 at ISO100 with some the basic natural adjustments in Adobe Lightroom.
