The simplified purity that winter brings to the landscape, as lakes freeze over and the surrounding landscape is turned to white. There’s a certain smell in the air within the beech forests of Fiordland, particularly in winter when branches are frost covered in the crips air. On this morning, temperatures were -10 celsius and hoar frost decorated the shadow filled valleys. The warm, morning coffee was much appreciated after this sunrise shoot.
