The First Sunset

The First Sunset

This shot is from the first sunset of a 10 day New Zealand photography trip in April 2015. Our initial plans were to photograph sunset somewhere between Christchurch and Arthur's Pass (or potentially even at Arthur's Pass) but unfortunately our flight was delayed. We quickly got our hire car keys, sorted some mobile phone coverage, went through Drive-Thru McDonalds for dinner and hit the road to find somewhere to shoot. We really were blessed with some awesome light while driving to find a location. Chi found a fairly close access point to this west facing river and we decided to shoot here. It really was a fantastic chase for the light!
