Araucária pine trees against the sunset sky of the Planalto Serrano region, Brazil.
The Brazilian pine, locally known as Araucária, is a conifer tree typically found in the southern regions of Brazil, mainly at high altitudes.
They make these great silhouettes, don't they?
This region is also know for awesome winter sunsets and the casual snow.

One of my favourite places in New Zealand, is beautiful Lake Matheson.
On favourable mornings, the reward for your early morning hiking aspirations is a crystal clear and calm lake offering pristine reflections of the alpine spectacle before your eyes.
Not the most conducive cloud cover formation for a landscape image (covering Mount Cook wholesale), but, after a failed attempt the morning prior, I was thankful for the fire in the sky this second morning's attempt.
This is an image from my spring 2011 campaign of the South Island.
