"Golden Highway"

"Passing through the velvet-like hills of the Lindis Pass between Mount Cook & Queenstown is always a beautiful drive, whatever the weather. But this time, it was pure magic. Fresh snow had fallen the night before & just enough had melted that day to reveal the layers of tussock, which were now ignited by the golden light of sunset. Using my 210mm telephoto lens, I methodically captured 72 separate images, which I then stitched together to create one large composite file, preserving all the light & fine detail. This enables it to be enlarged to extreme sizes & fill very large, dramatic spaces.”
