First light on the divide
Description: Whataroa Saddle, Mt Mannering 125th anniversary climb.
Judge’s Comments: This image lines up all the ducks in a row. It’s a technical feat, balancing the light of dawn breaking on the horizon with the remaining star-scape in the sky and the light of the headlamps on the slope in the foreground. But also because it tells a story; a climber finishes packing whilst his/her buddies travel ahead, lighting the way. Well done. (Simon Waterhouse)
