A sunset shot at the Tauranga harbour entrance with a bird doing a photo bomb...

This old farm shed on the main highway north from Bulls town has been photographed many a time and the challenge is to capture the changes of seasons and whats being farmed at the time. The sheep were a bit shy for this shot…

The spheres on the coast north of New Plymouth really are such a special tresure insofar as they are not often above the shifting sands and to see them is a low tide treck because of where they are which can be dangerous if you don”t get your timing right. This image is available to buy as a canvas of fine art print. Please enquire…

This sea stack is really hard to pass by with out standing in awe of its structure. Rivals anything in the Coromandel thats for sure.

Taranaki at sunrise from Lake Mangamahoe is a real treat when the cloud gods are in your favour such as the case that morning. Didn”t stop the ducks asking for a feed tho…

More hidden tresures of Taranaki north which are so elusive and hard to get to. I call them spheres as they are perfectly round and would rival the Moaraki boulders in the South Island for presence…

A lightening show that made a apperance before christmas which rivaled anything we have had for a few years…

The wreck or whats left of the Gairlock on the Taranaki coastline made a fitting for the end of 2018. Intent was to highlight the rusty decayed nature of the old wreck trying to stand the test of time…

October 2018 social media round-up…

Octobers postings for the month on Facebook and Instagram was a mixed bag of places with a bit of experimentation thrown in for good measure. Variety is supposed to be the spice of life isn’t it?

A lucky chance passing the Tauranga Bridge Marina when the light was just starting to show some awesome colour was the incentive to stop and look for some nice reflective imaging. When was about to press the shutter waited for this intrepid boat in the dingy to pass and got him in just the right spot with a tad of added blur to show the movement. He was actually well-chair bound so hats off to him…

This was a image that i published a few full moons ago but it was spotted to go up as a 8 meter wide wallpaper in a new Tauranga office. Awesome…

Nothing like watching the sun go down at the Tauranga Sulphur Point Marina…

Nothing like watching the sun go down and lights come on from atop the Mount.

Just for fun a disastrous attempt at star trails with a selfie…

The mettle road to Tokino  ski field from the Desert Road is a interesting little sidetrack on a road trip…

Tawhai Falls or Gollums Pool as some know them from the LOTR movies. Such a difficult place to image until you get the right light and atmosphere.

A picture study of Omokoroa.

Omokoroa in the Tauranga Harbour was a sleepy holiday destination then a few people decided that as well as holidays there why not make it a retirement home. With this general mix of people for awhile its now become a satellite style of new town with all the new development to contrast against the old batch style of community and everything in between. To the old timers its just not the same but is still good to see some of the original batches still taking centre stage on the waterfront.

Have been trying to catch some interesting imagery of the waterfront area recently but the good light has been elusive to say the least. So that brings out a bit of a creative thought process with this imagery with some good luck at being in the right place at the right time.

Lets chat about a image for your blank wall space delivered to your place ready to hang.

Burke Street old wharf…

Burke Street old wharf…

The old wharf piles at Burke Street in Thames in the Coromandel are a bit of a photographers magnet. Its a little bit like the Wanaka Tree in its ability to attract attention but it has no glorious mountain back-drop to fill in behind so its really the weather at the time yhat has to fill in that spot be it a stunning sunset or some moody clouds. A perfect cloudless sky doesn’t seem to cut it.

In this case the day was just bleh and had a monotone feel so what else is a photog to do but make a black and white image. Have included a colour shot made just afterwards for a comparison.

Both these images are available to purchase as a canvas print of fine art without the watermarks.

Drop me a line…

A canvas or fine art? And the size...?

This is five images blended into this panoramic which ended as a rather large file. It was so detailed i could zoom in and read some ships names so would print as a high resolution image.

Hopefully when you click on the image to open in a lightbox its resolution will show thru. A bit hard to do on a screen especially a small one. But then again you can expand with a small screen and really have a good look around. Beware this is a large file size and may take a few seconds to load up…
