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 […]

Round Rock and the Sugarloaf

Mirror exercise, Taranaki

Elevated viewpoints so often improve a shot and sometimes I had a stepladder on board […]

St Joseph’s twilight muster: horizontal

St Joseph’s twilight muster: horizontal

It ranks as “runner-up” only because it’s entirely moon-less, the crescent moon (the object of the whole exercise) being too high in the sky to be included in a horizontal composition. However as a simple set-up, this […]

St Joseph’s twilight muster

How I love the crescent moon. The new moon is a real waif, and only visible for a short time on the twilit horizon, before it too sinks below sight. Then night after night the crescent moon fattens, spending longer in the western sky – each night the moon rises about an hour later, so […]
