Big Cities and Little 'uns
Mountainstorm I took an evening drive to Glenorchy, which is about 50 km outside of Queenstown. It's one of the windiest drives in the world, especially in the middle of a violent storm! The rain stopped for a short time while I went on a short hike to capture the mountains across the lake. The wind was so intense. After setting up the tripod and setting up the interval timer, I had to shield the whole thing with my body, by leaning into the wind on the more threatening side of the camera. As I was doing this, I was wondering if anyone would really want to be my assistant. it's not nearly as glamorous as you might think!- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.
The Tolkienesque Bridge I normally don't put two photos from the same city (or even country!) back-to-back in consecutive days, but I decided to award Queenstown this honor. It is very high on my list of cities to move to! I just need to check on a few things like broadband availability and a good spot to plop the family down, and I'll be in business!This is from the main park in Queenstown. It was as quaint as could be. The evening light made everything a little bit extra-colorful, and some clever little hobbit-engineer, found it fitting to put this nice little stone bridge across the pond. It is all quite nice, no?- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.
I was at the Summer Palace to go up on stage for an opening ceremony event, and there were a bunch of these guys on the perimeter keeping the peace. It was quite a docile crowd, really, so they weren't really needed. While I was waiting to go up on stage, I snapped this quick photo.- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.
