Maori Bay sunset

One of those places where humans definitely do not belong and for that matter are not particularly welcomed. The surf is fierce, the bird life even fiercer if you should happen to stop and set up your tripod a little to close. I must go back soon. The first time in a place like thisContinue reading “Maori Bay sunset”

Oakley Creek Walkway Reflection1

There have been a number of articles in the local papers lately about one of Auckland’s great undiscovered treasures – The Oakley Creek Walkway, which follows along Oakley Creek and has a nice little waterfall. It was a perfect Saturday, so the husband I packed up our gear and headed down the road toward theContinue reading “Oakley Creek Walkway Reflection1”

A yellow drop

While there is no doubt that most of photography comes from the eye of the photographer, there is simply no discounting the part that comes from having great equipment. Still getting my head around this new lens, discovering what it can do and just loving it all. I don’t know what the name of thisContinue reading “A yellow drop”

I also mentioned that I followed some young men down below the street for a monster point of view, figuring that they were young and tender andContinue reading “Monsters’ Lair”

And that blue light below street level – I have not coloured or enhanced that, other than opening the aperture up to let as much light in as possible. But there really are blue lights down there, so below the street where peopleContinue reading “The tale of the monster hideout”

Dancer on the beach

Just a quick one tonight… Went to Piha Beach this evening to shoot the sunset and a dancer who came to dance for a group of photographers. Sadly, she got lost on the way so we didn’t get to shoot her in the best light. I did get some nice stuff though and am especiallyContinue reading “Dancer on the beach”
