Emily Peak and the surrounding snow-capped mountains are lit up by the rising sun, while Lake MacKenzie and the mysterious rocks around it are still in shadow. I was inspired by the tranquillity of this view when walking the Routeburn Track on New Zealand’s South Island.
Colours are dark shades of blue and green, with plenty of white and paler gold on the tops.
