I'm a young aspiring photographer that has a sweet tooth for HDR photography.

Franz Josef Glacier

This is Franz Josef glacier in New Zealand.  It is located very close to Mt. Cook and Fox Glacier on the South Island.  This image doesn’t show much scale but as you walked closer to the glacier’s front it made you feel like an ant.  I would have to say that the ice wall was about 100 feet tall.  It was very impressive and humbling.  Along this path of polished rocks were several waterfalls we walked by.  You can see one on the right side of the valley portrayed as two nearly vertical white lines just above the front of the glacier.  Also, flowing from under the glacier was a river, it hides within this vast valley on the opposite side I stood here.  This area of New Zealand is a must see if you are on the South Island.

  1. I really like the low perspective with the glacier leading you up through the shot. The green on the mountain side is just butter as well. Great work man!

  2. Nice composition – snow leads you down into the frame, and I like that you chose a low vantage point for it.
