"Raining Jewels"

“I discovered this sensational tree by accident, as I followed a random track along the shores of Lake Pukaki, searching for views of Mt. Cook. I drove past this same spot earlier in the morning (when the tree had been in shadow), but I was soon forced to stop as another tree had fallen, blocking the track. Discovering a mass of red toadstools under the trees, by the time I had shot these & reversed back the same way, the sun had risen & was now lighting this tree from my driver's side window - ‘quick STOP!’ It really was the most magnificent display of light & colour.”
