New on 500px : Overwhelming Scene of Beauty by PatrickMarsonOng by PatrickMarsonOng

Lake Tekapo – Church of the Good Shepherd, New Zealand

Words are not enough to describe such beauty this country brings.

An 8 stitched panoramic shot of the lake and church backed by the fiery mountains on a majestic sunset. Taken just 2 months ago. Late autumn to early winter.

I would encourage you to view it at a bigger and better quality to appreciate it’s beauty and details more.

PS: Don’t forget to zoom in btw. Cheers!!

It’s quite an epic morning at Lake Tekapo with burning red sky during the golden hour. We 1st started shooting the Good Shepard church (which at that time we had the church by ourselves) and run like crazy to get on this spot. It’s not everyday you’ll get a surreal scene like this but the South Island of New Zealand has this magic.

The beauty under the world map… New Zealand’s south island is indesrcibable. Magnificent lakes surrounded by snow covered mountains are spectacular. The light here at Lake Tekapo is the best so far. We witnessed awesome transitions of light from warm to pinkish magenta sunset. My most photographed place during our photo trip down under. Can’t resist the clarity of the water and shiny rocks illuminated by awesome light and the company of photography buddies to complete an epic trip!!! 🙂

The Church of the Good Sheperd is a very well known church sitting up the shore of Lake Tekapo. it was built with the very rocks that is scattered all over the Lake. Shot during sunrise, when i see images of this church from the past, it amazes me how colorful their shots were, and when i finally had the chance to go and see myself it was absolutely stunning! Light here is just completely different, The sunrise lasted for almost 45 minutes but i only got a few shots when 2 buses of tourists started to bash in my frame and it was a bit frustrating.

I am not a fan of blending nor combining two images in one as I have been taught to get it right from the click of the shutter. But I always wanted to shoot a startrail plus a properly balanced exposure and color of the foreground, without the intense blue casts, dark areas and light painted structures.

I came across an amazing online tutorial that teaches the art of digital blending. So as an experiment, I dug through my old lake tekapo shots from my first visit. Spring time lupines!!

Trying out my skills in photoshop, two images, one was taken after the sun has set from the horizon for my foreground and blended it with a 70 image star stacked sky taken 3 hours after… Cheers!!

New on 500px : Epic Journey by PatrickMarsonOng by PatrickMarsonOng

It’s been my fourth time to New Zealand since 2012. We often fly in to Auckland, spending a couple of nights enjoying the city’s food and booze, then we fly to Wellington, visit a very close friend, rent a van and ride the Inter-islander ferry to start the south island photo tour journey!

First stop, Lake Tekapo. “Destination in 558KM, 6hrs and 50mins” as the gps always says upon leaving the ferry. Yes, it’s a very long drive but for me it’s the most amazing and scenic route one can ever see.

The drive takes you from the rugged, Seal-invaded coastline of Kaikoura, through the wonderful city of christchurch, continuing to the vast farming fields and huge mountains of Ashburton and Geraldine, then finally seeing the alps from Lake Tekapo, it is like a never ending adventure for a photographer.

Sharing one of the most photographed places in the country – Church of the Good Shephered, taken on a cloudless sunny morning. I often see amazing shots of sunrise, sunsets, twilights and star trails, so i opted for a different one. Starburst! LOL

One word to describe New Zealand? AMAZING. Cheers!
