Join me in experiencing my adventures and excitement on my photo shoots, as I unwrap my journey involved in capturing images that linger, whilst reflecting spectacular scenery that soak the soul with peace and hope!
This location is away from the main road. On each visit to Gravel Pit, Queenstown, I have always walked away with a spring in my step as it is such a beautiful area with the Remarkable mountain range as a backdrop. How can you top that?
It was a freezing cold morning as I edged my vehicle as close as I could to Lake Wakatipu. My camera was already secured to my tripod. When I got out of my vehicle, the temperature was at freezing point. Fortunately I wore layers of good winter clothing.
I stepped into the lake. Wearing waders is an advantage. It enables me to capture images that are distinctly different. The autumn colours were absolutely splendid this year.
Although the wind picked up in speed, I was fortunate enough to capture this image when it was calm. Isn’t it amazing how peaceful scenes sooth the soul.
Having mentioned the temperature, the advantage is the warmth of the colour of the trees makes it a perfect contrast between warm colours and a cold morning.
Each photo shoot is packed with fun, intrigue and ways in which to improve my photography. After my photo shoot, It did not take long to pack away my photographic equipment and enjoy a warm cup of hot chocolate.
