Today’s iCandy – Remarkable Dawn
I was only in Queenstown for a short time, 2 nights in fact, and the first morning I went to Glenorchy for sunrise. I found this spot the day before, If I can, I like to ‘scope’ out an area the day before because it is just too hard to find the best sunrise locations in the dark, besides, I like to be relaxed and set up in plenty of time before the sun comes up. The mountains in this image is The Remarkables. They really are remarkable, but then so are most of the mountains in New Zealand. Queenstown itself is to the left of the photo… I want to go back… I really liked it here!
