Gorgeous capture of the early morning light on Mt Sefton, Mike!! The colours, 'mood', details, textures and composition here all are outstanding!! I must get to the South Island with Phil one of these days!! He went there *many* years ago with his parents, but, although I was born in the North Island, I myself have not yet had the privilege of visiting the South Island...and I want to after seeing images like this one of yours!! ;o) #6095143
