Photographer's Note

A tourist's-eye-view of the Franz Joseph Glacier in the South Island of New Zealand.

Unique, apparently, in that it and its sister glacier, Fox, are the only glaciers to descend into rainforest. Both are almost at sea-level.

Metering was very tricky here - I exposed to the sunlit snow at the upper reaches of the glacier, and needed some work in PP to lighten the darker areas.

Keen eyes may be able to spot the climbers descending the face of the glacier, just above the sloping rock bottom-right.

Feedback welcomed, my apologies for not spending much time at TE these days.
