15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Last Rays

The last rays of the sunset illuminating the top of the snowy summit of Mount Cook the highest mountain of New Zealand. I took this picture from Mueller Hut at the top of an hiking trail in the Aoraki / Mount Cook national park in the southern Alps of the south island. After a hike started under the rain we finished under the snow but after a few hours the sky was finally clear for the sunset.
