Malte Brun Range

Malte Brun Range

9 July 2014, it was winter in southern hemisphere.

From Mount Cook Range, at height of 1500 m, we could view both sides of two major mountain ranges: Sealy Range and Malte Brun Range. In one most intensified sunrise morning during our mountain trip, I made this image capturing a magnificent view of Malte Brun Range with Tasman Valley underneath, while the far end Lake Pukaki on the right is the catchment of Tasman River.

This image was a result of stitching 18 successive shots from left to right all taken within a few minutes, using lens 14-24 mm f/2.8 at 14mm end. The original image is of 15280 Px x 4615 Px with the size almost 100 MB.

The entire image illustrates a 240-degree grand view of this amazing scenery, far beyond our naked eyes' perspective.
