Milford & Mitre Peak at Sunset by Odille Esmonde-Morgan

Another re-edit from my 2010 trip. I edited this at the time and was never that happy with it, but my editing skills are improving all the time.

While it was a colourful sunset I have ‘pushed’ this a little farther than I usually do, but I think it works.

This was a very fleeting moment, I have about 10 images and they are all taken within 2 minutes, then all the colour went and it was a dark and flat scene. I was very lucky the boat was in the right spot at the right time.

Milford & Mitre Peak has scored 79 points for a Bronze Certificate in the Better Photography Magazine 2011 Photograph of the Year Competition

I am especially honoured to have had 3 Features in one day for this image on 12 April 2011 – in Your Country’s Best, Your Magic Place and Artist on Facebook

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.

    I haven’t seen your earlier image but this is absolutely fantastic Odille. Brilliant work.

  • Thanks Ralph – I was initially disappointed because there weren’t any of those lovely moody clouds you see in images of this spot, but it’s come up well.

    I know what you mean, I love NZ, although I’m yet to “do” the south island – on the “to do” list

  • I haven’t done the NI yet – and I still consider I have a lot more to see on the SI. I still want to live there!
