The afternoon light and a light wind combined to produce these wonderful blue patterns on Lake Wakatipu, NZ

This is the area used, when shot with moody and misty clouds, as the Wizard’s Vale in the Lord of the Rings film trilogy.

In the late 1970s I completed the 2 years of a 4 yr Professional Photography Cert at TAFE, but was defeated by the physics of lenses.
In 2004 I bought my first DSLR & now shoot full time with medium format digital and professional Canon DSLRs.
I provide tuition to small groups via photography workshops for small groups (max 5) and Photoshop PP classes, and conduct small group photography tours to Australian & (soon) NZ destinations.

    And I didn’t really see these when I took it, but the patterns popped out in Bridge and a bit of playing brought this lovely result.

    Stunning work Odille, I love the varying blues and tranquillity (I loved it when I first saw it and wanted to come back after the challenge to see it again).

  • It’s gorgeous, I loved the way the patterns of the water came up
