Sunset at Tasman Lake, Mt Cook NP, New Zealand
The Story of "The Sun Sets on Tasman Lake"
While more commonly known as a spot for sunrise photography, I ventured out to Tasman Lake in Mt Cook National Park to capture the colors of sunset on a summer night in 2017. The soft water and distant mountains create the perfect foreground, while the purple and violet hues of the sky create a scene that is nothing short of magical.
Mt Cook National Park is my favorite place in all of New Zealand, as it provides some of the best hikes and scenery at literally any time of day. It is one of the few Dark Sky Reserves in the world making it a worldwide destination for nightscapes, and is obviously something to behold at sunset as well.
