Daily Photo – Sunset in New Zealand before the Blizzard

We are expecting a major blizzard coming into Queenstown tonight! We just got back from the grocery store to stock up. I’ve got all my cameras fully charged and ready to go… I’ll try to hit as many places as I can with the fresh snow… chains are ready and all is good to go! Super-excited.

And, speaking of the article above, I can’t think of any of my images that could have been improved if I am using the new features in Adobe’s cloud. Sure, I subscribed to their cloud (Adobe did not gift me one, nor will they probably ever because I am so critical of them), and I am using the latest of everything… but none of these new features have really found their way into my photos yet. Comon Adobe… I know you can do better.

  • Trey, this is one of your best shots in a while! I absolutely love it! That sky is stunning; they way the dark cloud followed the contours of the mountain. Brilliant.

    This is amazing – really, really, amazing shot. So many interesting features and character (love the little house by the lake), it’s pretty much perfect as Susan states. Surely one of your best shots from 2012 Trey….
