After a long walk into a nearby wilderness hut in Arthur's Pass National park, I went out hoping to capture a bright and colorful sunset. The conditions were not to be and I was therefore forced to try and be a little more creative. Thankfully I had packed my 70-200mm lens, a mistake I had made before and learnt from. Just after the sun had set I watched the fog rolling in over the ridge in front of Mt Isobel and realized it would make a nice long exposure monochrome image. The wind was problematic for such a large lens on a 30 second exposure so I was forced to get my camera as low to the ground as possible, behind a little ledge that provided some shelter. I took a few shots with this one coming out as the most spectacular.
