Friday photo: Mount Aspiring (3033m) and Mount French viewed across the upper Matukituki Valley from Mt Barff. Winter 2012.

It had been a mostly cloudless afternoon with valley mist occasionally revealing Aspiring, but towards sunset the sky turned on quite a display!

Cascade below the main McLean Falls. Tautuku River, Catlins.
Lucky to have an overcast day and a chance between showers to capture this one.

Another shot from my most recent trip to Tongariro National Park. First night of the trip I walked in darkness from the Desert Road to this site overlooking Mt Ngauruhoe. Frost gathered on the top of my pack as I tramped.

I was up well before dawn to scope the area more and shot quite a few angles as the light changed. This one - a stitch taken before the sun actually rose - is one of my favourites.

Tongaririo National Park, New Zealand.

One from a recent landscape shoot on Ball Ridge. Spent two nights camped here opposite the awesome Caroline Face of Aoraki Mt Cook and overlooking the Tasman Glacier and Malte Brun Range. More to come from this shoot soon.

The oft-photographed Purakanui Falls, Catlins. Shot on my first ever Catlins visit a few weeks back. Glad I finally go to this place - it's a treasure trove of hidden beaches, lush rainforest, waterfalls and fascinating history.

Friday Photo: Epic sunset cloud over the Southern Alps. Shot during a winter shoot up a Mueller Hut a couple of years ago. The cloud stayed there - in one form or another - for about 48 hours, providing an awesome subject at sunset and sunrise.

The giant and chaotic East Face of Mount Sefton, Hooker Valley and Aoraki Mount Cook. Aoraki Mount Cook National Park, New Zealand.

Shot from Sealy Range, just below Mueller Hut. If you've never been there - it's one of the most awe inspiring spots in NZ for a relatively easy overnight trip. This shot was taken in winter 2012.

Just for a Moment: Hooker Glacier Terminal Lake and the South Face of Aoraki Mount Cook. Shot this one quite a while after sunrise, when the best light had gone, but cloud was starting to build - hazing the sky and partially obscuring Aoraki's low peak.
