Edit: stoked at my fifth Daily Deviation. Thank you so much :iconanoya: (Anoya) for featuring me, and :icontimberclipse: (TimberClipse), :iconbokehlight: (BokehLight), and :iconmiguel-santos: (Miguel-Santos) for suggesting the image for a Daily Deviation.

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.

Friends, Romans and country men, lend me your ears. I have not come to criticise this shot, but to praise it!
It is fantastic!
I will now retire to my room and write a song. I will call it 'Smoke on the water, fire in the sky'...
I already have the riff in my head.
Respect from South Africa.
