Dragon Eggs - Moeraki Chaos

Posted in: New Zealand, Seascape

Dragon Eggs at Moeraki Boulders I just spent an hour writing this post, which was originally about the two recent ‘controversies’ in the photography community (Steve McCurry photoshopping his images, and someone copying Marc Adamus’ composition), where debates among photographers were heated. My post pretty much said, life’s too short to argue with a stranger […]

Moon River - Mt. Cook and Hooker Valley at Night
1 month, 3 weeks ago 12

Moon River – Mt. Cook and Hooker Valley at Night One of the interesting things about being a landscape photographer is how much we miss while we’re shooting. Every now and then I’ll be working with my camera, capturing nature’s display, and realise that I’m so focused on what I’m doing that I’m missing the […]

Epic Sunrise Glenorchy __________________________________ Hey guys! I have a question, if you’ve got a minute. If you’re a regular visitor to the blog, do you find the post-processing description and the before/after comparisons useful? I’m just wondering if it is something I should continue, or if it’s not really helping much. Thanks! __________________________________ Last week […]

Perfect Timing - Milky Way at Nugget Point
2 months ago 11

The Clouds Did Part I planned this image about 7 months ago. Using my Photopills app, I worked out the new moon date and what time the galactic centre would be over the lighthouse like this. The Milky Way would be in position at around 11pm. Unfortunately, the sky was black with clouds when we […]

Moeraki Boulders and Calm Waters

Moreaki Boulders This sunrise at Meoraki was probably one of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. It lasted for about 45 minutes and just kept getting better. The beach was packed with photographers. Since this is a very easy location to get to, I had expected that to be the case. Fortunately I was the […]

Sunrise At Nugget Point

Climbing the Point Climbing up to take this shot isn’t exactly mountain climbing, but it’s definitely a bit ropy, especially when doing it in the dark. You scramble up the side of the cliff, and then make your way ever upwards until you run low on bravery and choose your spot. At the point where […]

Epic Sunset Over Milford Sound

Posted in: New Zealand, Sunset

A Surprise Sunset at Milford It had been raining all day. I was waiting for sunset but didn’t have high expectations. Milford Sound is famously rainy and there hadn’t been even the slightest glimpse of a sky since we’d arrived earlier in the day – just thick clouds and rain. But of course, as photographers, […]

Milky Way over Lake Rotoiti

Running Around NZ One of the added bonuses of being in New Zealand is the walking trails. My wife and I aren’t walkers typically, but we are runners. My wife runs a comfortable 6 minute mile (and under) over 10km, whereas I kind of plod along slowly, just enjoying myself. Back in Korea there was […]

That Wanaka Tree
3 months, 1 week ago 9

The Most Photographed Tree in the World? We went to the beautiful town of Wanaka for 2 days, not to take photos, but to see my wife’s brother who has been living there for years. I’ve never really been interested in taking photos of the Wanaka tree. I’ve seen some very nice images of it, […]
