On this day, Mt Cook was obscured by valley cloud until about the last 5 or 6 minutes of light. I almost blew this shot as I was busy chatting to some nice Aussie guys (oxymoronic statement I know). The blowing snow makes the shot for me.
Most of these flickr shots are BIGGER on our website. You can also view more of our New Zealand landscape photography there :)
My gradual decline towards senility is also charted on my blog - The Photo Autocracy
And finally, we have also just posted our latest FREE New Zealand landscape photography guide for Mt Cook / Lake Pukaki
