Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

Shot at first Light on the 1st of April 2012, taken at Papamoa Domain, view towards Motiti Island to the left, Maketu center and Papamoa to Pap East to the right. Time, 7.11 am.

This is a nine image stitch in CS5.5 (no HDR!!!) 180˙ view, shot on a Nikon D700 with Nikkor 17-35mm lens at 17mm (no time to set nodal point)
ISO 100, Cokin warming filter and a Singh Ray reverse grad.

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.

    Pretty speccy shot Ken, and hey, no HDR; wow this is impressive. Must have been an awesome sunrise.

    Nine images would have been a pretty large file to process in CS5. Love the overall effect.
