creepy golden hour at tekapo, playing around with the shutter. getting some forms from the lenticular clouds, this one like a portal opening.

Mt Cook and Mt Tasman partially hidden with sunrise colored clouds to the left side. I maxed out all the detail and exposure I could control on 1 shot (as the base image) then took 4 more so I could complete the mood I wanted. Rendered this one a bit dark as it best conveys that moment that was given.

New on 500px : Relight the Fire by christianlim by christianlim

i was thinking if I should drive out to the dunes or not, i had to drive iurie and another friend to the lake to catch this sunrise… i wanted to shoot something else but that had to wait after this image, I had the best light here last winter….


another possibility presented itself this time with still water on the shore so I went in to shoot at the last minute. worth the decision as the light did not last long at the plains due to some middle cloud.

this image was taken a couple of inches from the water and up close on some small pcs of rock along the shore and is a stacked multiple focus image.

New on 500px : The Eminence by christianlim by christianlim

NZ’s most photographed tree, overnight a high pushed through from the west making the nights and mornings cloudless for a couple of days. I was waiting for the leaves of the tree to turn yellow, it was a great golden hour for autumn colors but this one sticks to my head the most with just the right amount of shadows and sunrise color. The reflection was not that perfect so I did not wreck my brain to shoot it, instead grabbed some leaves from the trees at the shoreline to make this scene a bit different.

This one was wierd, it was overcast and we didn’t know if she was gonna show or not… but in NZ anything is possible, a scouting morning hike that turned into a couple of frames shot, here is a moody Lake Matheson from Fox Glacier, South Island. Im still not over getting cancelled from a 1 hour aerial photography trip so I guess I’ll have to make a winter trip.
