Mt Cook was my first stop for this New Zealand mountain trip. I took a very slim weather window went to 1800 m high Sealy Range, stayed one night in Mueller Hut - an alpine hut there. I arrived in the hut at 3:30pm, then the weather started to turn mad from evening, by the next day morning, the wind speed reached 70km/h, and started raining. I managed to make couple of shots during the dawn period from this high cliff edge while it was drifting. After finishing morning shooting, I got off the mountain quickly before the heavy raining arrived.
