15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Tequila Sunset

This was shot in New Zealand in late 2016. It was a charming scene just before sunset. The sun crept down and it caught the tips of the mountains around the lake and illuminated them in a wholesome orange hue. The sky was still a brilliant blue, bright and crisp. The lake repeated the pleasant display in its reflection. It was a beautifully warm cocktail of colour. A sight to be felt.
