"Fresh snow had fallen a few days earlier, so I reckoned this might provide a good opportunity to capture the dramatic shapes & shadows of Skippers Canyon, near Queenstown. Arriving here before dawn, I captured wider angles at sunrise, then switched to my longest lens & 2x teleconverter, focusing my attention on this compressed, distant view. I waited patiently in the cold, hoping the sun might find a gap to penetrate the clouds. And just as I was about to give up, these warm rays of light were released onto these patches of golden tussock. Suddenly, this scene was transformed into one of contrast & beauty, by this extra level of light."
