Icy grip on Sir Ed’s peak

This picture was taken on a weekend igloo-building mission on the Sealy Range. Taken from Mt Ollivier – a well visited scramble and Sir Edmund Hillary’s first major climb.

It was a crisp, cloudless weekend, and we were treated to several great sunsets on New Zealand’s great Maunga. Shot with a Canon 550D. Camera settings: 28mm – f/20, 1/6, ISO200.
