New on 500px : Valley of Illusions by PatrickMarsonOng by PatrickMarsonOng

Sharing my first visit to New Zealand spring of 2012. First time ever to see a country with such amazing landscapes like this, hiking for a sunrise shoot at an hour and a half through hanging bridges, howling winds, luscious greens and huge snow capped mountains was my best experience ever.

Hooker valley track, one of the most popular walks in the park, it ends at the glacier lake where the most amazing view of Aoraki Mount Cook awaits!

i still consider sunrise to be the best time to take photos of mt cook even if it does not get direct alpen glow from this side of her vantage points.

Nonetheless, this is the first time I took a shot from the river during sunset, was at the glacier during my first trip in 2011 and in between 3 trips was always hunting for sunrise light.

Still quite stunning too see, this one taken after I had plunged 500 dollars worth of filters into the river, had to fish them out from the cold glacial water.
