Portraits and People
Big Cities and Little 'uns
Here is a wonderful little bridge in Bendemeer Estates. We went here on the final day of the last New Zealand photo adventure, and we’re going here again! :) I can’t promise the skies will be this good, but it will be interesting.I’ve been meaning to come back to this little island and bring a little picnic lunch. I need to stop thinking about this and just do it!- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.
We took a helicopter ride up and around Queenstown and tried going down a few new valleys. This spot is pretty much right over Moke Lake and that tiny lake you see there is Lake Kirkpatrick. I’ve made that drive a few times below and it’s always beautiful.I think one very unusual thing about this place is that perfectly conical mountain that is also green. When you get that kind of shape in nature, it’s rarely green — usually some kind of a dirty brown (easier to erode). But now the vegetation will help this to keep its awesome shape a long time.- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.
Sunset over Island I don’t make a lot of these vertical, portrait-mode sunsets. I don’t know why! Whenever I do make one in this orientation, I’m often quite happy with it… and I say to myself, “I should do this more often!” But then I come back after a hardcore sunset session, and I realize 90% of my shots are in landscape mode.My wife likes these orientations better too. She prefers these to be kind we hang in the house… Maybe this is just because she’s heavily into Pinterest! :)- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.
