Road Through The Hills
On Thursday nights they have a curry night here at The Hills in Arrowtown. Here in the middle of the summer, the sun doesn't actually go down until 9 or 10 PM, so there is plenty of light. I usually jump into a golf cart and roll around to try to find interesting shots!
The Clay Cliffs
The Clay Cliffs take a little bit of a drive (30 mins out of the way from Omarama), but they are really worth it. There is just a short hike to get this view, and you can even get up in there and walk around inside. It's enchanting, and you may recognize these from a few scenes in LOTR.
The Double-inner Cloister
When touring the fortified monastery inside Mont Saint-Michel, one of the final areas after many twists and turns opens into this charming cloister. The arches and craftsmanship is remarkable and makes for at least a few hours worth of photos.
Do mornings get easier over time? Maybe, and I Don't Know are my two answers. It's such a relative thing, I guess. And whenever I wake up from sleeping, there is a feeling of a tear between worlds!
La Defense de la Matrix
This whole area in and around La Défense in Paris is an amazing area for photography. Everyone knows that Paris is a delight for artistic reasons, but the area in and around this building is relatively quiet.
Say Hello to my Little Friend
I walked up the hill in the back along the fenceline. The house pup bounded along and followed me all the way! He was very friendly. Maybe he was a bit worried about the upcoming storm…
Visiting the Peregrine Winery in the Late Afternoon
I need to come up with a list of my top 10 wineries to visit in this area. These are all less than half an hour from my house, so I have no excuse!
Exploring Caves in the Valley of Fire
Is this place hot? Yes. Did I dump a bottle of water on my head every 15 minutes? Yes. Was I completely dry for 14 minutes between each dumping? Yes.
Ducks and Tree and Snow
There is a cool tree that grows out of the water in Wanaka. When things are calm, sometimes there are these nice little ripples that come by while the ducks swim around… so serene!
My Fortress of Solitude
I don’t know why I’ve never taken a photo of my studio cottage before now, but this seemed like a good occasion. I’m so in love with my new camera, and I’m super-enamoured since I discovered that my “old” NEX wide-angle lens works so well on the camera! No need to lug around that giant thing any more…
