Large boulders sit in a glacial river bed with Mt Cook rising majestically in the background. These huge rocks have been carried here by glacial ice floes which carved out the valleys and shaped the landscape. Mt Cook (or Aoraki as it's known in Mauri) is the largest mountian in New Zealand and sits among the incredible Southern Alps. Often shrouded in mist, I was lucky enough to capture it on a clear day using a medium format film camera.

This image was captured with an analogue camera using traditional film which adds depth and a soft graininess, making it even more unique.
