Project Pressure photographer Klaus Thymann recently returned from our first expedition to New Zealand, where he photographed and data-logged glaciers in the Darran Mountains of Fiordland National Park (pictured). Working with glaciologist Dr Trevor Chinn, the team travelled by helicopter to enable them to visit Mount Tutoko, Mount Madeline, Mount Gunn and Mount Prembroke. This is one of the few places in the world where lush temperate rainforest and glacier-covered peaks exists in such close proximity, and we’ll bring you more photographs as soon as they’re processed and graded.
