Some faves from NZ

So while I was away I took some photos (as you may have noticed). I did in fact take 1,646 photos. Now you would think that of those there must be a few that I liked and you would be right. A surprisingly large number which is very satisfying. I often find that when I spend a lot of time dedicated solely to taking photos when I get home I am hard pressed to find many images that I really like. This time was different though (again big thanks to Mike and Jackie from QCCP).

I thought that I would just be a bit indulgent and share a few of my faves as I know that a lot of people read my blog just to look at the pictures 🙂

ISO1250, F9.0, 1/350sec

An old farm building taken from the side of the road. Loved the misty look and the feeling of cold that I get when I look at this image.

ISO200, F6.3, 1/640sec

Reflections in Lake Kirkpatrick. The toi toi (bushy grass in front) is everywhere and makes me immediately think of New Zealand. I’m in love with toi toi.

ISO800, F9.0, 0.5sec

A tiny little stream that ran into the Rees River that then ultimately runs into Lake Wakatipu. I liked the idea of this water starting in such a beautiful little spot and ending up in the grandeur of the lake.

This is one of my big faves. It is the clouds taken out of the window of the plane on the way home. I love minimalist images and this is certainly one of those. Not everyones cup of tea (Dave thinks it is pointless) but I certainly like it.

ISO320, F5.6, 1/160sec

Skippers Canyon was just a visual delight with full autumn colours framing a creek in the bottom of the valley.

So there you go – a few of my faves. Have a couple more but might save them for another day 🙂

    Love the light and clarity of The Beginning. Into the blue is also a great one, especially for a plane window shot!
