Reflected Beauty

This is probably my favourite shot from my South Island trip. It was taken at Kelland Ponds, just south of Twizel.

 

Normally when I shoot a location, I run around all over the place trying different compositions and angles while the light is good, but here I found my spot and didn't move an inch.

 

As the sun was setting, it would break through the clouds every now and again lighting up the trees, showing off their incredible autumn colours, and I would click the shutter. It was kinda refreshing just standing there admiring the scene rather than running around like a headless chicken!

 

I left this place with a big smile on my face. :)
