Recently I spent five days in New Zealand with my family. I had planned a lot of landscape adventures, but sadly became ill halfway through the trip. I still managed to come away with a keeper or two, though, including this shot of Mount Cook/Aoraki.

I spotted these odd clouds forming like a crown over the highest mountain in New Zealand and literally leaped from the car (much to a gaggle of tourists' suprise), rolling down to the lake edge and frantically setting up for the shot before the clouds passed.
