Photographer's Note

Lake Matheson, near Fox Glacier in New Zealand's South Island, is famous for "mirror" images. The best time for these is apparently early morning. We got up at 0530 and with brisk walking got to the "View of views" position for 0600. This was taken on aperture priority in something of a rush (I was also trying to use a camcorder to film the sunrise). The mist and cloud didn't break for long - but long enough to make for (IMHO) an interesting shot. Levels + contrast slightly adjusted using PSE 3.0, but the colour is as the camera recorded it. The streak in the water is the wake of a duck in case this reduced version isn't clear.
