Dramatic snow-capped peaks, turquoise lakes, braided rivers and deep glaciated valleys make Aoraki Mount Cook a spectacular place to take photographs. The National Park is surprisingly accessible on foot or by car from Mount Cook Village, and visitors will find a network of well-developed tracks suited to different skills and abilities. This pictorial guidebook doubles as a photography and walking/driving guide to prime scenic areas.

Skilled photographer and climber Mark Watson introduces 33 of the best locations for mountain photography on camera, tripod and mobile phone. He covers the Hooker and Tasman Valleys, the Sealy and Mount Cook Ranges and alongside Lake Pukaki with stunning photographs of each site. There are numerous tips and techniques for beginner and intermediate photographers and 12 tutorials on double-page spreads. Watson identifies the best vantage points to capture scenic shots and highlights special features, the season and time of the day for optimum light conditions.

Both visitors and photographers will find inspiration and guidance in this useful, informative guide.
