When I uploaded an aerial shot of Lake Pukaki, Caledonia asked 'any more?'. Also, mrswoolybill was interested in the glacial run-off. So here is an actual glacier.

According to Wikipedia, the Hooker Glacier (bottom left of my shot) is one of several glaciers close to the slopes of Aoraki/Mount Cook in the Southern Alps of New Zealand. Though not as large as its neighbour, the Tasman Glacier, it is still impressive and is some 11 kilometres in length. It is on the southwestern slopes of Aoraki/Mt Cook and is the source of the Hooker River, a small tributary of the Tasman River, which flows into Lake Pukaki. One of New Zealand's more accessible glaciers, it can be seen clearly from the start of the Copland Track, close to The Hermitage.

In fact, my earlier picture of Aoraki/Mt Cook was taken from The Hermitage car park, but you are too low down there to see the glacier. This shot is taken from a helicopter at approximately 8,000 ft altitude, which is high enough to see the glacier!

Impressive/dramatic. I was stuck to taking glacier shots from on them themselves!
