The Golden Valleys

PhotoWalk in New York City

I think I’m coming the NYC soon…. who is up for a PhotoWalk? I think I’ll have to get serious about planning something…

Daily Photo – The Golden Valleys

I’ve taken to going out on random drives around New Zealand. I put on music and just follow the sun around. It ducks behind and beyond mountains and valleys, so I turn this way and that, and often get out to hike around inaccessible areas. It’s the middle of the winter here, so the sun is always quite low, so we get nice, extended sunrises and sunsets. Every now and then, the sun gets into a certain angle and everything is bathed in gold…

    Oh wow – yes another ‘wow’ – but this shot is super awesome – love it – Your wandering around seems to be giving you some great shots! 🙂

  • Casper van Zyl

    This is one of the better ones as it is totally different to your normal work in colour wise. The Gold is a real stand out and so are the mountains in the back ground. I can see why you made your move to NZ. These nature photos are worth waking up to every day as one can never tire out as there is something new round the next corner. Well seen and taken,I feel Susan will love this one when she gets on to your blog today.

    Oh yea!! I can just imagine sitting on some rock, listening to some good tunes, and watching this scene unfold. Gorgeous, Trey!

  • Mike Dutton

    First time posting, long time reader. Think the colour is great as well as the details in the mountain tops. When were you thinking about NYC?

  • Fatima Neves

    Absolutely amazing landscape. The picture captures the golden light in a beautiful poetic way. If you like beautiful light you should consider coming to Lisbon, Portugal.

  • I’m in dude!

  • SharonDeHayes

    Perfect! Nothing else to say.

  • Definitely interested in a NYC Photowalk with you Trey.

  • dale_coz

    Wow! Just amazing!

  • MaryBeth Farrell

    Please let us know dates as soon as possible, so I can make reservations. I am well over do to visit my Brother and family, in Queens
    .Im really enjoying class, despite my sometimes non existent, mojavi wifi signal that leaves me me with the dreaded black screen, but is kind enough to still provide sound =) I gave this class to my sister for her birthday. She was a fan of HDR when it appeared on Flickr several years ago and is fully enjoying the class with picture and sound, as she lives in civilization.
    . Luke is an amazing help. I told him – I know an Octopus when i am helped by one.
    Looking forward to tonight and your dates for NYC

  • Very nice!!

  • Trey Ratcliff

    Thanks! More details on the NY event will be forthcoming 🙂

  • Jon M

  • GAHHHH that’s the sound that I made when I saw this (it was a good sound). I am looking forward to the details for NYC, if there is a way I will make sure I get there!

  • Holy awesome awesomeness, batman, RE: Today’s shot!

    Hey you know, I was thinking of going to NYC this year sometime after the Rockefeller Center Tree Lighting ceremony for some of those sorts of shots. Love me some Christmas-time HDR.

  • Wow!!! Just beautiful, Trey!! Have a wonderful Friday. I’ll be busy selling apple dumplings at our 100th annual Creamery Picnic in Stevensville, Montana!! Yummy!!
