Lake Matheson

This is a very typical and very much reproduced (but nevertheless, beautiful!) view of the reflections of Mount Cook and the Southern Alps in Lake Matheson. You have to be up very early to get to the lake before even the lightest of breezes begins to scoot over the lake if you want to get perfect mirror-image reflections. I was in no rush this morning so had to settle for the slightly more wrinkled reflections! Still, it's gorgeous anyway - and I was pretty lucky to see the top of Mount Cook which is usually shrouded in cloud.
