This shot was taken in Cardrona while filming the @redbullnz Snowboarding Performance Camp. It was my last project in New Zealand before moving to England.
Each morning for two weeks @graememurraynz and I would get up at dawn and trek to the highest point of the mountain, through snow, over fences and along ridge lines until - very out of breath - we reached the summit. With the sky a blaze and the sun almost peaking over the mountain ranges, I filmed a few shots and then set up my timelapse camera. I took a step back and sat down on the cold rocks. Watching the mist rise through the valley as the orange glint of the sun poked it's head over the jagged snow capped giants was glorious. I felt so alive.⠀
It's these moments that I crave, when I feel most connected to the world.⠀
