Great capture Ian. LIKE it very much. Greetings Berend
East face of Aoraki is impressive and threatening for avalanches and rock falls do occur periodically, but from this safe distance, the impression I was left with was of its majesty.
Thanks for your response, Berend.
Just magnificent and as you say so impressive. It's always good to respect the forces of nature and enjoy certain things from a distance ;-)
Warm wishes, Erik
Very "Majestic" Ian,looks good enlarged.Like. Regards Brian.
wonderful view LIKE
Warmest regards, Erik. I'm glad that I can show you some of the high points of the world. The Southern Alps are pretty impressive, and I will be going back from time to time - they are quite magnetic.
Dera Berend, Erik, Brian and Mostafa.
Aoraki/Mount Cook lost 10 meters in elevation following a large rock avalanche down this East Face of the mountain on December 14, 1991. The avalanche left the summit unstable and further falls could reduce the height further.
This video clip gives you some glimpses of this face immediately after the avalanche.
Thanks for your interest and appreciation of the image.
Yes dear Ian, majestik and impressive!
Thanks the video clip.
I think, I must see also New Zeland!
Warmest greetings. Füsun
You must plan on it, Fü, but just remember that Australia is a very very big continent and you will probably find that the time you have allowed is nowhere near enough, to see what you want to see. But NZ is only a 4 hr flight away! And it will captivate you. NZ is a bit like going to Britain and Norway together.
