By / National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest Sebastian Warneke One of my dreams was it to shoot the night sky when I went on holiday to New Zealand this February. Unfortunately the time was not perfect because of the moon, which was at the beginning nearly the whole night at the sky and also the weather made me change plans. At the end of my trip I had luck and got a clear sky after the sunset although the whole day was very cloudy. I decided to drive to the famous little church in Tekapo and took some shots of the night sky before the moon rose.

For scale, this Iceberg is about the size of a Jeep.

A pair of beautiful white miniature horns were the first to rise above the twigs before I seen this pair of beautiful Owlet eyes.
