These stunning wind clouds hovered over Mt Cook National Park for two days while I was there shooting for Our Mountains in winter 2012.
Hooker Valley and Aoraki Mt Cook from the Sealy Range.

Who's been to Liverpool Hut? The new-ish hut there is deluxe and a great spot for a relatively cruisy getaway. Quiet in winter too. 

Hana and I went there in winter 2012 and climbed two thirds of the way up Mt Barff to shoot Mt Aspiring for Our Mountains: http://ourmountainsbook.wordpress.com/

Caroline Face of Aoraki Mount Cook and the Ball Glacier just before sunrise. Shot during winter 2012.

I believe the brightest 'star' visible is Jupiter. Any night sky experts out there?

Mount Sefton and the Footstool at dawn. Shot mid winter from the Mueller Glacier terminal lake outlet, after the biggest snowfall in years blanketed Mt Cook Village.

This shot accompanies my photography article in the latest issue of The Climber magazine (#89).

Aoraki Mount Cook and Hooker Valley from the Hooker Glacier terminal lake. Shot winter last year.

This one ran as a two page spread in Wilderness a couple of issues back.

Nice to see one of the shots from Our Mountains on the cover of the latest Wilderness magazine. Liam and Joanna Dangerfield had barely been in the country a week when they accompanied me to the summit of Mitre Peak for a photo shoot for the book. 

In a whirlwind trip we drove from Christchurch to Milford, climbed Mitre Peak the next day and bivvied on the summit, descended the following day (and had to wave down a fishing boat when our pick up didn't come). Next day we did the classic Macpherson Talbot traverse in the Darrans and then drove home the following day. It was my last shoot for the book and I was stoked to get the shots. Mitre Peak is a classic NZ adventure.
