From Clare’s Journal
It was a cold morning, with a temperature reading just above freezing point when I arrived at this beautiful location. I have been to Jack’s Point on several occasions. Each photo shoot has been memorable
Jack’s Point is an affluent suburb at the base of The Remarkable Mountains on the peripheral of Queenstown, South Island, New Zealand. It boasts a world renowned golf course. As I headed towards the golf course I noticed a light layer of mist rising above the lake close by.
Capturing the Shot
I always arrive at my photo shoot destinations before first light as it gives me an opportunity to prepare myself to walk to a desired spot, which avails time to prepare my photographic equipment, namely my tripod, camera and my photographic filters.
As I walked towards the hill which I am familiar with, I instinctively knew to turn around, and stop. I lengthened my tripod legs and secured my camera on my tripod. Light was starting to leak behind the Remarkable Mountain range. The mist was more prevalent and had become more dense. It was suspended with ease above the lake and fields.
The sounds of silence was evident, with a distance sound of ducks and birds to welcome the new day. It was a breathless time in space. As soon as the sunrise became more evident, I clicked away on my shutter release to capture the beauty before me. A hint of a breeze swept over the valley, releasing a chill. I was appreciative of my warm clothing.
At the end of my photo shoot, I packed away my equipment and walked back to my vehicle with a spring in my step as it was a memorable sunrise.
