This image of an epic valley near Wanaka demonstrates the grandeur of the landscapes to be found the South Island of New Zealand.
This image was created during a photo tour, and accessing this wonderful spot at any time (let alone for an amazing sunset) was only possible from having participated in the photo tour.
The sunset was simply awesome, and bringing this to life in the final image took some work. To be honest I might revisit this again in the future.
All in all I was happy with the composition, but feel that a foreground object would add some interest. But the reality is that the scene is epic enough to carry itself!
