Cool Blue

It was a very dark cold morning when my wife and I started the 1.5hr walk along the Hooker Valler track. I had seen a number of images of the Hooker glacier lake and I got very excited when the guide from the tourist info told us that there were currently floating icebergs seen in the lake - perfect! Arriving at the lake at the end of the track I was first shocked that the lake was frozen - no reflections!! After exploring the rock beach a little bit further we found a section near the river exit that hadn't been so I set up my tripod and panorama gear and shot this multi-row panorama. It was an overwhelming sight of beauty and I hope I did it justice with this image. I can't wait to get back there again to try different compositions - next time with waders!
