Compelling

Location: Mt Aspiring National Park, Otago, South Island, New Zealand
Arriving at my destination, I leapt out of the car and made my way quickly to the river to capture the awe-inspiring beauty.
As I stood in the river, my first thought was, what do I capture first, as the scenery was spectacular everywhere I looked. I focused on the direction of the light and became aware of the clouds being transformed into subtle and alternating with stronger hues of pink.
At the same time the mountain peaks were being illuminated, creating a stimulating effect with the shadows elsewhere.
Natural light and the impact and influence it has on creation always fascinates me. As a photographer, there is no time wasted in capturing the dynamics and sometimes the dramatic effects produced by the light.
