Beyond the Plains

Beyond the Plains

Mount Ollivier is a 1933 m mountain in the Canterbury region of the South Island of New Zealand. Its peak is in the Sealy Range, 2.6 km west of Mt Cook Village. Mount Ollivier was Edmund Hillary's first major climb in 1939.

In the late afternoon of 13 January 2014, our guide Italian mountaineer Alessandro Beber led me and Tom to climb Mount Ollivier. This panorama image, which consists of 11 successive single shots and presents a super wide perspective, records the moment that we reached the summit. The standing man on the right was Alessandro Beber.

As you can see, thick clouds were forming at this moment. By the time we descended the mountain, strong wind started and bad weather lasted for next 24 hours.
