Fox Glacier - P.O.T.D 02/01/2015

Fox Glacier is a 13km long glacier located in the South Island of New Zealand. It was one of the highlights from my recent trip there. We took a helicopter up to the middle of the glacier and was taken on a guided hike around this magnificent location. If you ever have the chance to go to New Zealand, this is definitely worth checking out.  

We were lucky with the weather to be able to get up there and we even managed to get some sunlight, on our way back clouds started to gather and rain started to fall, this is when I created this image. I like the eerie feeling the clouds bring to the glacier because as beautiful as it is to see, the glacier is a very dangerous place and I think the clouds add to that dimension. 

This is a panorama stitched together as this is the only way to get the entire glacier in the shot. It was a great experience for me and I hope my image can do it justice.
