The Mount Sunset Splash by Ken Wright

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

Taken from Moturiki Island (Leisure Island) view towards Mount Mauao (Mount Maunganui)

A lucky collision, just waiting for the sun to clip the edge of the Mount to subdue it and send out rays, then bang, that was a big splash, the next frame is a picture of my hand in front of the filter to protect it.

Shot on a Nikon D700 with nikkor 17-35mm lens.
Cokin Z-Pro, warming filter, ND8 and ND4, tripod, rockbags, Processed in Photomatix Pro HDR and photoshop.

All same evening:

Hi, Kia Ora from New Zealand, i have recently moved to Papamoa in the Bay of Plenty. I have spent the last thirty years taking photos, I love capturing images, especially ones that only I saw, only I was silly enough to get up at that time to catch the sunrise, photography is a wonderful thing, capture an image and you preserve the moment forever, miss it, and its lost forever.

Hope that you enjoy these images.
