Rowboat at the Still Lake

Exciting!

Thanks again for all the enthusiasm about the new video that you can sign up for now on the Landscape and Travel Photography Tutorial: New Zealand page! You can probably get the idea there that this thing is super-high quality. And, you’ll get to watch me do all kinds of hi-rez edits of many photos, including the one I am posting below today! :)

Daily Photo – Rowboat at the Still Lake

We walked around The Hills one morning, and we came to this place after the sun was beyond its “sunrise” phase. The sky was the peaceful morning infinite blue and the water was still as ice. There were many good angles to shoot across this peaceful scene, and most of us chose this view! :)

It was cool to do this and be with so many other nice photographers that were taking similar shots. I liked seeing their versions as well.

Anyway, if you end up getting the video series mentioned above, you’ll get to see me edit this photo from beginning to end! :)

Daily Photo – The Fields of the Queenstown Valley

See that cloud up there? It’s called a “Lenticular” cloud, and they seem to pop up down here every so often. I have never seen them before I moved here, but this is my first time living in a mountainous environment. Maybe you can tell me if these are common in rocky, mountainy areas!

Lake Hayes and Arrowtown

New Category Today – Arrowtown

Every so often I add a new category to the LONG LIST of locations on the right. That long list is starting to feel a little silly! I wonder if there is a better way to do it… I’m open to ideas! :)

Daily Photo – Lake Hayes and Arrowtown

I’m still getting to know my new area here in New Zealand, but I feel like I’m ignoring this side! Looking the other way (away from Queenstown) is nearby Arrowtown and Lake Hayes. If you plan on coming down to Queenstown, don’t forget to set aside a day to explore this area as well.

I’ve marked this place in Stuck On Earth if you want to go see exactly where to go to see this view.
