Tasman Valley Begins

Mount Cook and a Panorama of Tasman Valley

When we were staying at the Heritage, the weather was cloudy and drizzling. During the middle of the night, the clouds blew away, and Mount Cook made an appearance. I shot this photo of Mount Cook around 2am.

The next morning, I caught this sunrise shot.

Once the sun was up, I took this morning shot.

And then, as we were driving out of Tasman Valley, I shot this panorama. The river you see if glacial melt from the mountains flowing out to the stunningly gorgeous Lake Pukaki, which is featured in this post and this post.
