    A view from my belay stance 30 metres away from the top of Mount Brewster (2,515m). My climbing buddy Piotr, now safe on top, savoured his achievement before building an anchor to belay me up to join him. Our view was unfortunately short lived. Not long after I reached the summit the clouds engulfed us in a white out. New Zealand weather is as dramatic as the landscape - the perfect place for adventure

    From Your Shot photographer Rose Ungvari: "When I view your image, I feel like I am there in your shoes, my heart pounding away with fear mixed with excitement and awe. I ask myself... will I be able to make this risky final stretch to the summit? It looks so dangerous and narrow, one wrong step. Wow, I really admire you for accomplishing this breathtaking feat of reaching the summit to be with your friend right before the white out conditions arrived."
