Lake Matheson, Fox Glacier-every year we come here for a sunset and sunrise and this year it was rain at sunset and about 5 minutes In the morning where we could see the mountains before the clouds covered them. Mt. Cook is already in the clouds and Mt. Raman is about to be.See you next year Lake Matheson! #newzealand #visionarywild #lake #nature #sunrise @natgeocreative @natgeofineart
