New Zealand – Ice Spikes Fox Glacier

The glacial plateau at the base of Mount Cook and Mount Tasman is spectacular for its unique ice formations.  This photograph particularly appeals to me with the soft blue light in the foreground and the juxtaposition of the soft snow and jagged ice formations. This photograph also gives a very good indication of the immense scale of the mountains and ice structures. Another helicopter can just be seen just left of centre at the top of frame – look close its just a dot!This photograph was taken hand held from the small mountain  helicopter we chartered during our time at the Fox Glacier. Shot with a wide angle lens the pilot was able to get us in very close to the ice structures to fully take advantage of the lens’s wide angle of view.
