In the photographer's words: "As we rounded the track, this was the first glimpse that we got of New Zealand's tallest mountain, Aoraki/Mt.Cook. Having never seen snowy mountains up close before, the Hooker Valley track was by far the most incredible hike of my life. The top of the mountain is only visible there on the minority of clear days, and I was really beginning to wonder how we got to deserve all that luck."
