This is the view from our tent door in the middle of the night. It’s bloody cold as you can imagine! But if there’s ever a time when struggling out of a warm sleeping bag at night was worth it, this must be it.
Numerous avalanches came down as we slept. Creaking and crumbling followed by ground shuddering rumbles. Pretty awesome. They felt so close! Thankful of the sharp but deep narrow valley between us and the action. Otherwise it might have been a little too ‘exciting’ ;)
We had a big moon tonight and clear skies, perfect for night photography. Some of the shots I got of the Sealy Range and night sky blow my mind, I got avalanches in action and even shooting stars :) Mt Cook is lurking in the back of this shot, his face is in shadow from the moonlight, but don’t worry, my alarm is set, I’ll get him later when the moon arcs over.
I recommend clicking these next few images to see them nice and big!
