Trees in Snowfall


Availability: In stock

On the last day of a long weekend trip to Aoraki Mount Cook National Park, I awoke to an eerie quiet.  As I pulled back the curtains I could see snow falling around the village in the brightening morning light.  Delaying my departure somewhat, I made the most of the opportunity to explore the first section of the Hooker Valley track as well as some areas in the village.  As I walked the track, I cast my head from left to right and sometimes looking back to where I’d just walked – looking for photographic opportunities.  With a steadily thickening blanket of snow on the ground, I spotted these three Matagouri against a small hill in the background that had almost disappeared in whiteout conditions.  Matagouri are NZ’s only native shrub to feature thorns – though you could barely see them through the snow on this morning.  Choosing a longer exposure to allow a view of the falling snow, I set the camera up to record the scene.  It was a magical morning indeed!
