Photographer's Note

The Routeburn Track on the South Island of New Zealand has many fine views. This one is of Mt Crosscut, seen across the Hollyford Valley. Glaciers carved out these steep valleys in the last ice age. This part of the track goes through a wonderful forest of beech trees. These are different to the northern hemisphere beeches: they belong to the genus Nothofagus.
