Back to all Back


Description: Dome Ridge, Mt Ruapehu

Judge’s Comments: I found this image sort of snuck up on me. It quietly made it through each round of the culling process until it was surrounded by just a handful of selected images. It was then that I saw the beauty and simplicity in it. The category description states the winning image should have great light, colour, tone and detail, which this image doesn’t really have and yet the subtle tones, lack of colour and detail all add to the beauty of it. The composition is perfect, the footprints lead your eye into the frame where you see a lone mountaineer heading off along the ridge line and disappearing into the distance. (Lee Howell)
