Mount Taranaki: Winter Sunrise

Mount Taranaki: Winter Sunrise

I started to shoot around this tarn from 3:30am on 4 July. I witnessed the dramatic change of the sky during the following 5 hours - from the amazing moonlight starry sky to this graceful sunrise.

Mount Taranaki is one of the most beautiful and featured mountains I have ever seen so far. Another nice thing to visit this mountain is that there are many possible ways to explore this corn-shaped mountain from different directions and different means. Someday in a near future I will climb to the summit of this mountain.
