As per the norm with my deviation submissions, please click here to save your retinas, and view the image on a black background, thereby preserving shadow detail.
Gentle morning light radiates throughout the Mackenzie Basin. The sun was at an altitude of just 11.3 degrees at the time this image was made, which provides for the softness in the quality of light prevalent in the image.
In the distance is the beautiful turquoise Lake Tekapo. Lake Tekapo has a surface area of roughly 83 square kilometres and sits approximately 700 metres above sea level.
The lake is being fed by the pristine glacial Godley River, seen in the image proper, as a network of braided twists and knots. The water in the lake has flowed 30 kilometres south from the Mount Cook region in the Southern Alps.
