Being helicoptered from Wanaka to Fiordland and back yesterday is one of the most jaw-dropping experiences I’ve ever had. Here are some snaps from when we landed on the Tyndall Glacier, high up in the mountains. Article to come for @nzhtravel and all to celebrate the launch of @thecloudybayshed.
Been a pretty busy couple of weeks with barely enough time to catch my breath. But im not complaining about tbe #dailygrind when I get to #work in places like this, especially when my #commute is this epic.

Okayyy, so this is against my usual rule of single exposure shooting for fine photography images but sometimes rules are meant to be broken! Here’s two images combined to produce the lighting inside and outside of the glacier justttt right.. usually, I prefer to work in single exposure with my photography in editing but this image came out too good to not wanna share!! I still have a lifetime to learn with post shooting and editing but I’m happy with this result for where I’m at with my photography and editing skills for now.. here’s to doing what you love and living da dream because being inside of this glacier definitely felt like I had morphed to another frozen planet that not even my imagination could have fathomed!!!
“In Iceland, you can see the contours of the mountains wherever you go, and the swell of the hills, and always beyond that the horizon. And there's this strange thing: you're never sort of hidden; you always feel exposed in that landscape. But it makes it very beautiful as well.”

Crabeater Seals, while they are resting on the broken ice of the Antarctic peninsula, December 2018. Most feeding dives occur within the top 50 m, and are short. They have a general pattern of feeding from dusk until dawn, and hauling-out in the middle of the day. They can be seen swimming together in herds estimated to be up to 500 animals, breathing and diving almost synchronously.⠀
