A trip up Benmore Peak near Twizel

Roger and I are just back from quite a big photo mission up Benmore Peak which is near Twizel, and affords stunning views of Mt Cook and the MacKenzie basin. It's a very bulky mountain and distances on it are deceptive and vast. I've been up it a few times over the years and this time it was a joy to stay up on it in the camper truck and see the sunset and sun rise.

Some photos taken on the expedition:

The iconic Tarras store

Where we camped - note white camper truck sort of under Mt Cook...


New Zealand Falcon enjoying the sunset...


Flowers on the descent track...

Great photographs-love the one of the falcon-is that another name for a hawk,or are they quite differant?
When is Roger's book out?
