Dawn on the South Cameron Glacier

Not every day in the mountains begins, even in fine weather, with a soft pink glow that builds to a fiery and almost unreal orange dawn. On the South Cameron Glacier, en route to Mt Arrowsmith, the sun rose without such pomp or ceremony. But the soft light, on blessedly firm snow, did provide a great, more naturally coloured scene.
