ok I’m cheating a bit because yes we stopped here a few days ago but it was grey and we couldn’t see the glaciers and then our car battery died so oh well it was still an exciting day but no good pics so instead this is from when I visited in summa 🌿☀️ || #JanzDownUnder

Lake Matheson was incredible even though the weather was average. Breakfast was great at the Lake Matheson cafe as well. I can’t say this enough the scenery is absolutely incredible, no matter where you go. So here is a few pics and videos of that part of the day.
We feel like we were photoshopped into a post card!! The view and reflection of Mount Cook could not have been more picture perfect at Lake Matheson!

Hi everyone, it's @jasper_nebelsieck here again with another photograph from New Zealand. This shot was taken at Lake Matheson, where I spent almost the whole night taking astrophotos, including a timelapse that will be uploaded later on.
Once the weather forecast predicted a clear night at Lake Matheson with new moon approaching, I made plans. What I had in mind was capturing the milky way above Mount Tasman and Mount Cook with hopefully seeing reflections of the stars in the lake.
Fortunately, the conditions were near perfect. While it had been very cloudy in the afternoon and too windy to see any reflections, it cleared in the evening and you could finally see near perfect reflections.
All those tourists who visited the location at day-time hoping to see reflections were disappointed, while I was greatly rewarded for sticking around until night-time.
For me, daytime plays one of the biggest roles in photography.
I love to venture out in the early morning to see sunrises or even stay from sunset until sunrise, taking astrophotos inbetween.
Places get transformed into even more beautiful sceneries when the light is right or you are lucky enough to see spectacular night skies.

Check out this post from @hugo_chastan 🇫🇷 Quelle beauté ce lac ! Je ne m’en lasse pas. La réflection des montagnes enneigées, Mont Cook et Mont Tasman dans l’eau est parfaite. On pourrait rester là assis des heures 🤩_
