Lake Tekapo – South Island New Zealand 08/11


South Island NZ image - Lake Tekapo

Hey Everyone

Last week I got back 50 rolls of film I sent off to the lab to get processed this was one of photos from my box of slides.

On this trip we spent 10 days on the South Island of New Zealand, heading back to the airport we stopped in at a little town called Tekapo for the night before making our way to Christchurch for our flight home the next day. When we arrived it was quite windy and with hardly a cloud in the sky I wasn’t too impressed as I wanted something a little different in my collection and well snow capped mountains with no reflections in the lake wasn’t what I was looking for. Having given up on that idea set up anyway and began to wait for the sun to drop and give the mountains a bit of a glow but as the sun was beginning to set almost like someone turned off a switch the wind just stopped dead. With a very limited supply of film I was mainly focused on digital but knew that Velvia would give this shot that little pop that you can’t get with digital so as the mountains started glowing I fired off 2 shots and changed back to digital. The shot looks way better bigger so click the image to see a bigger version.

I have been scanning like crazy over the past couple days both new shots and old. These photos will be released on my site later this week and if you want you can click here to be taken straight to my new releases section of the website.

Cheers for stopping by

Photographer Fined for feeding Dingo 05/11

1 Comment

A female wildlife photographer was yesterday fined $40,000 for feeding dingoes on world heritage listed Fraser Island and The Department of Environment and Resource Management (DERM) says six of those dingoes had to be destroyed after they attacked people on Fraser Island.

Recently whilst photographing the island with fellow photographers Simon Beedle and Beau Mitchell we were lucky enough to come across a very placid dingo who walked right up to us letting us snap away at will. On Fraser Island there are so many warnings against feeding the animals including the all the fines so it is sad that these dingos have become malnourished and under fed but maybe that has to do with humans interfering with the dingos way of life and them become reliant on food from humans.

On another note earlier this week I sent off 50 rolls of Velvia 50 film to get processed and should be getting them back later today so keep an eye out for a lot of new content for the site.
