Glacier Hike

Shot of a group of tourist during a glacier hike of St Josef Glacier on the South Island of New Zealand. Unfortunately the glacier is declining rapidly due to global warming. On the way to the top of the glaxcier there are signs everywhere marking the decline in the last 100 years. The South Island is known for its majestic landscapes. With endless landscapes deserts, mountains, hills, ice, snow fog and countless mirror lakes.
