Low tide at Te Hapu, before sunset

Low tide at Te Hapu, before sunset

Although I took it 34 years ago this composition in thirds seems to have a timeless quality. It makes a fitting follow-up to my previous post: texture remains but vibrant colour is added in this telephoto view from a terrace above the beach at Te Hapu, a private property on Nelson’s far western coast.  A […]

Surf at dusk, Waitoetoe

Surf at dusk, Waitoetoe

This simple, moody abstract is a long exposure in north Taranaki, further north from Turangi Rd (my previous post). The view is from a small headland, looking down on a tide-washed sill above a bouldery seabed. A small aperture (unrecorded) was used primarily to extend the exposure, rather than the depth of field, although this […]

Cloud streaks, the opposite effect,  need about 2 minutes to look really good, but again, a longer time on wide […]

The short exposure has given a sharp outline to the boats, which on a longer shot invariably […]

Print of the month: Waireka moonrise

Print of the month: Waireka moonrise

PRINT of the Month for February is this colourful composition from Omata, on New Plymouth’s southern fringe. Enlightened fennel flowers front for an almost-full moon, rising slowly without fanfare.  The road is a quiet, no-exit one and but for a muted drone from distant SH45 the scene had no soundtrack. This fine art photo is printed […]
