Even half hidden behind Autumn foliage Aoraki / Mt Cook steals the show. This mountain just oozes granduer from what ever angle you look at it. It just doesn't seem to have a bad side.

Back in our commercial photography days I remember photographing two woman for a company profile shot. One of them required very careful lighting and VERY careful angles to make the 'best' of her features while the other, a very attractive woman, should have been easier to work with. However beauty is a fickle master. The first woman was easy going and relaxed while the second insisted that I could only photograph her showing the right side of her face and at a certain angle. 'The client is always right' - and we got there in the end to her liking - but I'd take temperamental cloud covered mountains any day!!
