New Zealand is full of surprises and most of them make great photography opportunities. This was just on of those cases. We were exploring a valley and came across this old stone wall with a tree at the end. This image was made with a 28mm lens on a Phase One IQ180.
I have been re-working some of my images using the update Capture One software 7.. I basically take images I worked on previously and run them back through the processor and they now come out even better. This is one of those images. It was shot on an IQ180 in New Zealand last December. I love the greens and details I was able to pull out of this shot. This was magical location.
This image was made in December 2012 showing one of my favorite places on the planet, Erarnslaw Burn, New Zealand. Very hard area to reach so it’s not visited by many. Very magical as there are hundreds of waterfalls pouring off glaciers thousands of feet in the air. Just to be present there is an incredible feeling.
Let’s move to another part of the world. I was looking for blog candidate images the other day from my inventory of images and this image jumped out. This image was made in New Zealand at Mt. Cook. I took a Zodiac ride into the lake filled with these mini Icebergs broken off from a near by glacier. The skies turned dark and the color popped and I clicked. Hope you enjoy this image.
Sometimes it is not the majestic landscape that is picturesque, but it is the manmade landscape. This is a shot of the Cromwell Dam in New Zealand.
It’s not too often one gets to travel to the edge of the planet. UI am very fortunate to have traveled to many edges of the planet and one of my favorite is Earnslaw Burn in New Zealand. I had my friend and instructor on the PODAS workshop take a picture of me there. Think I’ll give this to my mon for Christmas. It has been an amazing time in New Zealand with so many good images that I’ll be editing for the winter. Now it is head home in a few days for the Holidays then it is off to Bangkok and China in January.
I have been in New zealand for a week now and just taking amazing images. Looking forward to sharing more as the weeks go by. This image was made at sunrise in Deer Park. An area used to make many of the Lord Of The Rings movies. Just incredible colors.
We are on our second day of the PODAS workshop in New Zealand. We have a great group of attendees and instructors.

I am in New Zealand as you probably know. We start a PODAS workshop on Monday and we have been doing prep work for the workshop. The gear arrived this morning and everything is in order. So, this afternoon Drew, Collin and myself headed out to take photos. We found lots of nice locations, and this image is one of the ones I liked best. We have a whole week coming up shooting incredible spots so keep watching for more.
After nearly 30 hours of travel I arrived in New Zealand dead tired. So I crashed early and then awoke at 5AM to witness a beautiful sunrise. So I sat in my sweats and took photos from the deck of the house we are using in Queenstown.
