|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Fed by four alpine glaciers, Fox Glacier falls 2600 metres on its 13 kilometre journey towards the coast. Named after an early New Zealand Prime Minister, William Fox, the glacier is 300 metres deep and its terminal face is just 5 kilometres from the township. The road to the glacier crosses ancient moraine from earlier advances and retreats.|
This picture shows the bottom part of the glacier and the terminal face. The picture was taken from a light aircraft cruising around 9000 feet when the picture was captured.
