[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
We are planning a trip to New Zealand later this year, going through photos of my previous trip I liked this one.
Fox Glacier (Te Moeka o Tuawe in Māori) is a 12 km long glacier located in Westland National Park on the West Coast of New Zealand's South Island.

Some impressive scenery in that part of the world, Nico - have to say the scene didn;t grab me until I opened the thumbnail - and now I see this is a pretty powerful shot. Well composed with lovely variety of textures - fro, the misty clouds to that harsh glacier and the soft moss in the foreground. Nice shot.

Well I have to say I've had a go at Fox with exactly the same camera and I never managed to get anything this good! Terrific work! Lovely saturation and very good metering and saturation here.
Very well done

Hi Nico, every year the glacier is in a different position - you should see a difference if you go back to Fox Glacier this year.
It is a well composed image and the glacier and surrounding areas are captured well.

Great to see the glacier from a different angle (this is not the normal 'tourist' shot). Wonderful composition with the colour in the foreground adding warmth to a gloomy day.
Your not far from my home territory here!!

Hello Nico,
Lovely mountain photo.
Like this pov, and colors. TFS
