For almost two years I’ve wanted to photograph this great peak in the Fiordland wilderness. After a few attempts, I was finally able to gaze upon its summit which was right in the core of a winter freeze, resulting in temperatures below -10 celsius. Topo maps can help with scouting but finding this icy stream with trees framing the peak was a pleasant surprise. Shortly after sunset, the full moon arose, bringing life and light upon the frozen landscape. In this day and age, it’s a real privilege to still be able to stand in places that very few ever have, if any at all.
