After exploring the Blue Pool Track we headed through Haast Pass on our way to Haast and the west coast of New Zealand.
Once to the township of Haast the west coast of New Zealand begins. The west coast is known for its Beech forests, silver ferns, and a TON of rain. From Haast we made our way north to the town of Fox Glacier where we would spend the night. When we arrived the sun was just setting. Once parked in our camping spot for the night I was able to get out of the van and snap a few shots of this brilliant alpen glow on the Southern Alps. Never before have I seen such colors of red and pink. It looked fake. Amazingly enough, outside of adding a vignette, no editing was done to the color in this video. Unfortunately, my Canon 7D just doesn't have the power to capture all the highlights and shadows that were present. The video just doesn't do that evening justice. I'll remember these colors for the rest of my life. It was that spectacular.
