New on 500px : Stranded by everlookphotography by everlookphotography

New Zealand

Last year, Marianne and I witnessed some of the most amazing light during our trip from Kaikoura. This was one of the more subdued experiences on the last morning prior to our departure back to home. Since I had to wade 20m out to this tree, I more or less spent the whole morning in the water on or around the log finding compositions to shoot. Interestingly, as the morning grew later, I saw another couple arrive at the shore photographing various other spots from the shore before they spotted me out in the water and then started photographing the tree as well (with me photobombing!). This was a morning where I didn’t really chase light , but like the couple on the shore, there are mornings when I do go into ‘headless chook’ mode running around trying to improvise to suit the light. It’s an age old internal debate – stick with composition or chase light?

We are in the process of finally planning another holiday for October ! Hopefully #2 at 6 months will be able to handle some photographic shoots from our back 🙂

New on 500px : Rule Free by colinbooks by colinbooks

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

Somewhere on the south of the south island, NZ.

New on 500px : Angelus Falling by everlookphotography by everlookphotography

Lake Angelus area
Nelson Lakes National Park

This image was taken on the afternoon prior to the ‘Angelus Rising’ shot here : [Angelus Rising]
The plan was to shoot a sunset from the opposite ridge and Hinapouri tarn but 100km winds and horizontal sleet put paid to that and I had to wait for the following morning! Personally, I like this image better but the light in the previous!

Late afternoon light casts a glow on the autumn foilage of Glenorchy Lagoon. We were on our way to Kinloch but had to stop over to snap a few shots of this sight 🙂

New on 500px : Hidden Panorama by everlookphotography by everlookphotography

Glenorchy Lagoon
New Zealand

Hidden behind the square thumbnail, if you have clicked on this image, is the rest of the panorama !! This was taken on a beautiful frosty morning on our trip in 2012 when Charlotte would peacefully sleep on our back with like 10 layers on! These days, we have to divide parental duties due to 2 year old and 1 month old demands but hoping to get back to these scenes in a few years 🙂

New on 500px : How Grand by colinbooks by colinbooks

Every time I come to a new place it’s the mountains that get me. You can’t look out at that and feel anything but small.

How grand that is.

New on 500px : Shallow Bay by everlookphotography by everlookphotography

Lake Manapouri New Zealand This is a view of Shallow Bay along the shores of Lake Manapouri facing an intense sunrise. In 2012, it was my second overnighter away from the family during the trip which I stayed along the Kepler track. Shallow Bay hut incidentally was a little overrun with rats! I had also forgotten my waders but when this light happened, numb feet to knees was the go! [Deviant Art Gallery] [Facebook] [Web Gallery] [Flickr] [G+]
