We’ll make this the last from Lake Te Anau, even though it was probably one of my first for the evening !!, I’m like that ! and yes…I really pushed this but hey… That’s also just like me..I was trying to emphasise the incredible colours of the water in these glacial lakes and…well…got carried away..but… you know what..I don’t care !!, I like this little clump of reeds poking out from the darkness …so centre of attention they shall be !!

Taken at Lake Te Anau, Fjordland National Park, South Island, New Zealand…..somewhere in the Pacific !!

Nikon D90
Sigma 10-20mm @ 11mm
ISO 100
2 second Exposure

0.6 Hard edge Hitech ND Grad.

Actually converted this image to B&W and then via graduated filters in lightroom, really played around with the exposure and added the tones back in….Hope you like !!

Appreciating and capturing light is the cornerstone to my photography. combine this with the beauty of our Western Australian beaches and rocky coastline and you have something that should be both witnessed, captured and shared.

I hope I can inspire you to take the time to see a sunrise or sunset, on a coast or a rocky outcrop somewhere, and then maybe you can understand why for me, Photography has become a passion……
