A State of Tranquility

A State of Tranquility

The Ball Ridge is a mountain ridge on the other end of Mount Cook range, at height of 1750 m. The view towards north-east from the Ball Ridge is simply stunning: a massive glacier river flowing from the gully between two mountain ranges, while a number of mountain peaks and glaciers underneath form a vast landscape presenting an incredible visual impact.

This image was taken on 6 November 2014 - a full moon night. Soon after the sun went down, a full moon rose behind the mountain peaks, a mix of pink and blue tones occurring during this time illuminated the surroundings, and presented a peaceful mood.
