Westland Sunset

October 24th, 2011

Beams of sunset light shining through the coastal hills on the west coast of New Zealand. This shot was taken between Fox and Franz Josef glaciers by the side of the road after a long day of driving. I saw the light in the rear view mirror but couldn't see a good place to frame it. In the end I stopped just before turning the final corner into the mountains and got lucky!

Canon EOS 5D Mark II, Canon 70-200L, Adobe Lightroom 3.

Absolutely gorgeous. What a feast for the eyes. This is a photograph over which one enjoys lingering.

You were lucky to be a the right spot at the right time. There was no luck in capturing this image; you are a talented photographer.

Interesting place thanks for sharing! It reminds me of a mix between a southern farmland in America, Tuscany in Italy and The Shire from Middle-Earth :P

Colors are warm and plentiful and work together nicely. Contrast is really cool to look at with the sun behind the shadowed hills. It's rare to capture sun rays that size and they have a soothing feeling. And the sharpness let's you make out the houses and really see the size of the valley. Thanks jonpacker...

Wow!!! What a fantastic photo! Thank you!!! I like the warmth of the Sun you have captured in this. All that Yellowish / Orange hue spread across is beautiful!!!
