While camp­ing in his truck out at Gille­spies Beach, Ben Jack­son rose ex­tra early one morn­ing to cap­ture the sun­rise at Lake Mathe­son. Af­ter some cat-and­mouse with the cloud, he called it quits and headed back to the truck. Opt­ing in­stead for a walk, he hap­pened to come across a huge area cov­ered in bright yel­low blooms. The but­ter­cups are an endemic alpine flower, found only within the cen­tral part of the South­ern Alps be­tween Ao­raki / Mount Cook, and Arthur’s Pass national parks. Though del­i­cate enough to be with­ered by the light­est touch of frost, they thrive in one of New Zealand’s more hos­tile en­vi­ron­ments. With the cloud hang­ing over the alps hav­ing cleared, re­veal­ing a great back­ground, Ben took his shot.
