Franz Josef Glacier here is at an elevation of 7500 feet or 2500 m. Taken about 3.30 pm. It's so high up, you can see the setting sun in the Tasman Sea, 100's of km west. The tracks are from the ski plane which lands on the glacier.

A real dynamic composition,Chris!
Excellent sharpness and again a very good Scan!

If it wasn't for the tracks this would more LotR like than any of your others. As it is, the tracks work well as a compo device laeding to a well placed PoF. With the dramatic sky and good tech, a very nice shot all round.

Great image Chris, the tracks leads the eye
to the stunning sky.

A very old picture, but your scanning is formidable, the red colours and the sky and the snow on the foreground give a very nice picture, well seen!

NIce view in this unusual environment for you, the tracks create the perspective that lead us to the glacier, great depth and sharpness and splendid color tonal ranges here, at this time I was busy learning geography at school, some years after I decided to add practical applications to all this theory :))
Have a nice day,

This is one of your best photos. The color contrast is awesome and almost surreal! I like a lot the combination of orange, blue and white. Also like how the top of the mountains are placed in the top third balancing well the composition and giving room in the base to this interesting foreground.
danielswalsh (13599) 2005-02-14 9:48
Nice shot Chris...
A really amazing landscape. Intersting colors in the sky, how they go from brownish orange to blue. I've heard rumours about Australia's dust storms sometimes giving the snow in New Zealand a brownish tinge.... I guess this kind of supports that theory huh?
jrj (34843) 2005-02-14 10:45
Excellent colour setting even bringing in some 'warmth' to this snow landscape. Fine details of the tracks in the snow surface.

Super décor, super ciel ! Une image fantastique que tu as bien fait de ressortir de tes archives.
De la profondeur avec ce traces sur la neige.
Très bien fait !
dolin (15619) 2005-02-14 14:43
OHHHHH VERY NICE SHOT.
the colors are beautiful and the landscape is perfect.
nwoehnl (122) 2005-02-14 14:53
Amazing scenery, Chris. The diagonal snowplane tracks are an essential element for your composition, and the view towards the snow-capped peaks and setting sun in the back add up to a most impressive sight. Very nice shot.
Jeppe (18654) 2005-02-14 15:00
Oh - I just missing Frodo and his group walking on there way to Mordor - I like the fine golden sky and the mix of colours in the snow - thanks Chris - a fine job.
jiherka (4552) 2005-02-14 17:33
Great colours and nice composition. The track in the snow give a good movement to the picture contrasting with the fuzy of the sky.
Well done Chris.
avigur_11 (22099) 2005-02-14 18:43
Amazing shot, Chris. There is a verry dynamic element in the shape of the peak and the cloud, like a breating (or crushing wave). Amazing colors, sharpness, perspective and DOF. I am very glad that you re-discovered your old NZ photo collection. Great.
Kenny10pin (19301) 2005-02-14 18:54

cessy (13647) 2005-02-15 1:12

Graal (102622) 2005-02-15 3:55
Excelent place and time to picture. Warm colours on the cold glacier. Good effect and the composition, too.
mumek (20202) 2005-02-15 4:22

rbcy1974 (20758) 2005-09-19 5:40
Looking back through your gallery I found this gem. Nice combination of tracks leading away to the orizon, snow and beautiful sky.
Really great view,
capthaddock (28790) 2005-10-29 14:42
Hi Chris - another random find, and the thumbnail did not disappoint, wow, such a colourful sky to balance the snow covered foreground. I did a similar outing at Fr Jozef last month but with a helicopter in the morning, and under a clear blue but boring sky.
dsidwell (9783) 2005-11-13 10:19
Very exciting mood here, Chris! The leading lines of the tracks really lead the eye in--and to that lovely color in the back. This is a well crafted photo!
bazal (7900) 2007-01-21 7:22
I've discovered this one in your 'oldies' and think it is simply fantastic. The composition is great and the colors are incredibly beautiful, especially looking at the fact that it is a scan!
Late thanks for sharing this one!
