Moonlight over Alpine Glaciers

Moonlight over Alpine Glaciers

November 2014, it was early summer in south hemisphere. But no summer on the southern alps of New Zealand.

Ball Ridge is at the other end of Mount Cook Range, at height of 1750m. Due to a snow-storm 3 days ago and an overnight snow fall on 6 Nov 2014, it was quite challenging to climb to the ridge from the Ball Hut with 700m vertical height. It took us 6 hours to complete this hard climb.

Taken on 7 November 2014, this image illustrates a grand view from Ball Ridge towards the alpine glacier under a full-moon light.
