October 2012: Aoraki, the Cloud Piercer

Posted by GusRox on October 13, 2012

Late September in New Zealand’s Southern Alps can be a turbulent time with Equinoxal Westerlies blasting in off the Tasman Sea, but this year we got lucky for our Aoraki/Mt Cook shoot with 2 weeks of largely calm winds and sunny days. Highlights? Too many to mention but gliding over the summit ridge of Aoraki, New Zealand’s highest peak (Aoraki means ‘the Cloud Piercer’ in Maori) with legendary glider pilot Gavin Wills was definitely an experience I will never forget. Enjoy some of the Behind the Scenes shots below.
Cheers! Gus
