Alpenglow on Mount Sefton by carlywilliamson Alpenglow on Mount Sefton by carlywilliamson
Mount Cook National Park, New Zealand

Taken near the first bridge crossing on the Hooker Valley Track at dawn. Overall I prefer this shot than a previous one I had posted, I found it to be a bit lackluster and a few minutes too late to the point where the sky had lost most of it's colour the glow on the mountains wasn't as intense. When I came across this shot I thought it was too dark in exposure but I was able to bring it back in Lightroom thankfully! I added a slight vignetting too :)
My legs are still healing from being stabbed by spear-grass/giant spaniard plants all weekend but it was worth it :D

Aww man I just got back from backpacking in NZ and I really wish we had more time in Mount Cook! Have to stay a longer time when I return to NZ next time. Any recommendations for beautiful less than 5 hour treks?

I love how the light hits the mountains when the sun is low. Looks like someone set fire to the mountains. I had the luck of seeing something similar at lake matheson.

Very nice. Did you use a filter? Did you use a light meter?
