Last Rays

The last rays of the sunset illuminating the top of the snowy summit of Mount Cook the highest mountain of New Zealand. I took this picture from Mueller Hut at the top of an hiking trail in the Aoraki / Mount Cook national park in the southern Alps of the south island. After a hike started under the rain we finished under the snow but after a few hours the sky was finally clear for the sunset.
