Not sure we should be calling it Indian Summer down here, but we do… and we’re having one. This photo is straight out of the camera, slightly cropped and signed. I should be as satisfied with all of them…
It’s a funny sort of autumn, sunny and warm after such a cold, wet summer. We’ve had beautiful evenings, with soft, honey-coloured light on the gardens, playing tag with a light breeze and a pair of cabbage moths who fluttered out of the frame.
I love this and hate this… Love it because it is gorgeous, hate it because it’s so traditional, a completely standard ‘great sunset’ shot. Still, it’s a great sunset shot and I did take it myself, so I am not really complaining… he he… this is the same sunset at pretty much the same time of day and time as the impressionist sunset I put up yesterday. This one is further away from the water – and obviously is sharply in focus.
Went through over 600 images shot last night. To be honest, most were plain crap… I deleted over 300. Then I deleted another 100.

But exactlyContinue reading “Last light”

Straight out of the camera… Something I’ve learned about sunsets – the good stuff is just beginning once the sun disappears below the horizon… that’s when the reflected light on the clouds and dust particles in the air really work their magic. I bet it tastesContinue reading “watermelon sunset”
We’ve had a spate of dreary weather, wintry and wet, with blusters and blasts… this winter day at the beach in Raglan was so much kinder.
It’s been at least a month since I posted an image of a monkey – way past due… I love the determined and utterly serious faces of these two cotton top tamarin monkeys on the watch…
Apologies for putting two of these little globes up in a row, but I’ve had a bit of fun making them, experimenting with different types of subjects. Landscapes are the easiest to work with as long as you’ve got a bit of variety in the terrain. But anything that can be shot or cropped toContinue reading “Auckland Sunset”
You would think I’d be out chasing sunsets every night…
