    A Queentown Sunset

    I was heading back from a Lord of the Rings day tour and the sun was setting straight ahead of me. It was the most amazing sunset I had ever seen, with a mix of pink and blue hues. Even though I was fighting sleep, I knew I had to capture this somehow. So I yelled at the tour guide/driver to pull aside and I hopped out and van and I ran into the bushes at the side of the road. I had no idea where I was running into but I knew I couldn't take the picture there because lots of trees were obstructing my view. I ran down a hill until I reached a clearing and Lake Wakitipu was 2 inches from my toes. From there, there was nothing in front of me except the water and the amazing sunset.
