Taken in 2019, this photo happened by chance when I was hiking above Pinnacle Ridge at Whakapapa Ski field on Mt. Ruapehu. I sat down for a break, turned around to look downhill and these two fearless lads were precariously perched atop this ridge line. Below them to the left is safety and in bounds of the ski resort, and below them to the right and about 30 meters down a cliff is untamed, volcanic backcountry.

They stood there for a couple of minutes and thought it through, and about 5 seconds after this photo was taken, the cloud behind them consumed them and they decided to turn around back to safety.

Good choice I guess!

This photo is available for commercial use at different rates.  Contact me for more details.


Te Araroa- New Zealand Long Trail

It was chosen as part of a new partnership between Wilderness Magazine and Te Araroa Trust. Each month, Wilderness Magazine is publishing articles about Te Araroa, the New Zealand North to South hiking trail. It has gained in popularity after COVID 19 struck last year and kiwis turned to their own backyard and wanted more challenging hikes than the typical Great Walks. I feel honoured to have been chosen for this cover and hope for many more to come!  These are my favourite photos from this collection.
