In the dim, pre-dawn light I set out across the smooth glacial waters in my pack raft. The looming faces of the Southern Alps watching over me, as they begin to awaken with the glow of the morning sun. A recent glacial calving deposited towers of ice across the waters, those in the distance stretching over 100ft in height. Around 1km from where I set off, the scene began to ignite, with vibrant light and colour triumphantly awakening the morning.
