From Mikey about this image:

Magic and Majesty.
The Milky Way dwarfing our tallest mountain, the ‘King’ Aoraki Mount Cook.
The 5km hike in is simply beautiful, even when you’re lugging a backpack full of gear and two tripods, with two good mates doing the same! Was slow going but we made it.
We were here for 8 hours, but after the sun went down Mark and Adrian started to head back and capture some other scenes and faint aurora. So I was left here, just me and the mighty Aoraki Mount Cook, and a possum who stole one of my cookies 🙁
Well worth the trip out here, even in winter it can be quite mild like we found. A mass of rainfall had calved a heap of small (and bloody large) bergs for us to shoot.
Captured on the amazing Samyang XP 14mm ƒ2.4 lens mounted to a 6D.
30 seconds, ƒ2.8 at 10,000 ISO.
