The valley of fire

WILDERNESS LANDSCAPE

The conditions looked so poor from Mt Cook village that I had been prepared to sit out the dawn shoot. However, as sunrise approached I noticed a small hole appear in the sky – not particularly promising but tantalising enough for me to run full bore down into the valley.
