Photographer's Note

Pleasant Flat campsite is located 45 km East of Haast, deep within the Haast pass. The campsite is located on the Haast River, and has a clear view of Mt Hooker, seen here at sunset. The campsite includes potable water and toilets, but otherwise is quite primitive.

The Photo: As the sun was starting to set, I walked down to the river bank, and walked as far out into thee river as I could get on the exposed rocks. I set my camera's tripod as low as it would go, and placed it in the water, overlooking some rocks, but with a clear view of Mt. Hooker. I sat there with a cable release and took about 50 exposures as the sun went down. Each exposure was actually three bracketed exposures and I combined them into HDR images to bring out the faint clouds and preserve details in the deep shadows.
