On the way into Mt Cook you drive along the side of Lake Pukaki and in our case in the evening. Clouds were low and Mt Cook was poking up above a layer of cloud.

Hello IAn ,
A splendid capture of this wonderful mountain landscape . For sure , the sight is amazing , but you've framed it perfectly , with a superb sharpness . The effect of the clouds in the sky and around the summit is fantastic .
Thanks for the share .

Une belle carte postale de ce paysage montagneux et enneigé, un lac calme et de belles variantes de couleurs dans le ciel.
Merci pour le partage et bonne journée.

Ian, This is a beauty, so sharp, and the clouds look fantastic, with Mt.Cook just peeping through them.
You should frame this one and hang it up in the house mate, really nice.

Great shot, lovely composition. The clouds are a bonus and really make it a picturesque scene.

Belle le cime innevate fra le nuvole! Mi piacciono molto anche le variazioni cromatiche del cielo e la luce sul lago!

Spectacular scenery masterly captured by you. The depth of field is excellent. Good work!

Fantastic scenery and a great point of view. Great colours and very sharp too. You have captured the light on the mountains perfectly and the inclusion of the strip of trees running at an angle across the bottom of the frame is excellent. Having said that I think there is perhaps a little too much sky at the top of the frame meaning that the main focal point of the white peaks is in the middle of the shot and perhaps not as prominant as it could be, I think that the image could benefit from some extra clarity too. I've done a workshop to illustrate. Thanks for sharing.

I can imagine how great that moment was, especially if it had been cloudy for a long time. Patchy light and mountain top peeking between clouds is wonderful. And the landscape looks so wild and natural.

My congratulations to this picture! What a impressive and beautiful sight! The clouds around this giant create a somehow mysterious atmosphere here. A photo to marvel, to look at a bit longer ... great!

very impressive capture. I like very much how the mountain is visible across the layers of clouds. Very dreamy and romantic view. Also the colors add to the charming atmosphere.
Very well done, TFS

Outstanding capture of NZ's highest peak. The light on the peaks and the low clouds are magnificent. Looks like a painting. Cheers, Marlene
