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!

Arrow River, Arrowtown, Queenstown, South Island

It was the first time I had done a photo shoot at Arrowtown. I made my way from the car park towards the Arrow River in the semi dark. It was getting light quickly. The melodious bird song was uplifting.

I soon discovered the perfect spot to do my photo shoot. As I waded into the Arrow River, I immediately appreciated the depth and the strength of the flow of the river. I realised I would need to be cautious.

My camera was ready to used. The autumn colours were beautiful. The rock in the foreground looks like a frog. I reduced my tripod to maximise the colours of the river and the trees. I stood in this spot for 2 hours.

The temperature was just above freezing point. I did not mind as I was having so much fun. But I realised it was time to move on. Which I did. Further down the river.

At the end of my photo shoot, I was elated as I knew I’d captured images that were memorable. So, with a spring in my step, I made my way home.
