On February 4th a group of enthusiastic photographers met with our group leader, Michelle Cast, Nikon pro Reed Hoffmann and driver, John, for an adventure through the South Island of New Zealand. We were headed to Mt. Cook National Park starting at Christchurch. Along the way we had our first chance at photography at the Church of the Good Shepherd. We spent the night at the Hermitage Hotel, were we all had incredible views of Mt. Cook and the surrounding mountains. Here there were opportunities for sunrise, sunset, star-view and mid-day pictures of the mountains and a great Zodiac ride in Glacier Lake to the base of the glacier.
