Sunset Moonrise

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by kailey Petersen

I took this photo from the summit of Mt. Olivier in Aoraki National Park on the south island of New Zealand. As the sun began to set it cast the pinkish hue on the summit of Mt. Cook, New Zealand's highest peak at 3754 meters. Simultaneously the moon began to rise. I created this panorama from several shots with my Nikon D50 and only minor editing.

Location: Aoraki National Park
