Straight up

Two climber’s scale Margaret’s Leap ice fall at Tukino ski field on Ruapehu. This was shot on a cheap point and shoot when I didn’t know much about photography. Now I carry an expensive DSLR. What I’ve learnt since switching over, is that it doesn’t matter which camera you carry: light and composition are what really matter and that’s a lifelong learning process.  Shot on a Canon Ixus 870, 1/1600sec at f/6.3 ISO 200.
