Among the icicles

An early-spring ascent is the perfect time to summit popular Mt Egmont/Taranaki, which can be fairly crowded in the summer season. Snow and ice-covered slopes and rocks created magnificent scenery and a memorable trip. I used my widest lens and framed the climber among the icicles to capture a unique atmosphere.

Camera settings Canon 5D MKII, f13, 1/800, ISO 200.
