I awoke early in a hotel in Hanmer Springs, North Canterbury, pulled the curtains and there this was!
Stunning, isn't it? Yet it's one of the easiest impressive pictures anybody could ever take with any sort of camera. Provided, of course, that the conjunction of cloud and sunrise are favourable.
Photo libraries are full of shots like these; so are calendars and picture postcards. They are always a pleasure to see but if you're a professional photographer, they're the hardest to sell. Too many of 'em!
But as this is my private and personal blog I'm going to post it even if nobody else will.
