Right place, right time

I noticed this woman exploring the exposed rocky area around Mueller Hut. She stood on the boulder, with New Zealand’s highest mountain behind her just as the setting sun highlighted part of Aoraki/Mt Cook with a warm glow. It was one of those moments of being at the right place at the right time.
