The Cloud Piercer Rests by octane2 The Cloud Piercer Rests by octane2

Aoraki the Cloud Piercer (Mount Cook) imaged moments after the sun had set off the west coast of New Zealand. You can see the last light illuminating the top third of Aoraki.

I have never scampered up a mound or a hill composed of loose morraine as fast as I did this evening in the freezing cold to capture the last few rays of light bathing this almost mythical place.

Aoraki is the tallest mountain in New Zealand, standing about 3.8 km tall. I wish to climb it some day.

Hi!
In few month I'll go to new zealand for a 30days photo trip, i'm trying to see what are the best places to visit, and this certainly looks like a good one!

It would be great if you could tell me where you took this picture and if there's a difficult hike to be done to get there?
I'll go in NZ in septemer, hope not to find too much slow in the mountains!

Thanks in advance,
Niccolò Bonfadini
