Wednesday Wallpaper | Morning Mist, Lake Wanaka

New Zealand Photos | Golden Autumn Poplar Trees & Fog Lake Wanaka NZ

Morning fog shrouds golden poplar trees near Lake Wanaka New Zealand. Landscape photography by Todd Sisson

OK, This nocturnal posting is getting a little ‘old’ – time to change some notifications in my calendar :-)

This is the view from the very nuggety Mt Iron in Wanaka – captured after a pre-dawn mission to photograph a sunrise that never happened.  I love the layers and visual depth that receding fog imparts upon a landscape and I felt especially privileged to witness this scene unfolding before me.  Better than a red sunrise sky any day in my book.

Also available on our website as a canvas print.

See you next week!

Cheers – Todd

    Stunning shot.
    Wanaka friends say they have the best scenery in NZ.
    Not sure I’d want to climb Mt Iron to catch it – just leave it to the keen photographer – eh Todd!!

    Nope. It happens like that. It looks as though this was taken facing south east — looking over the Cardona River. The rivers (Cardrona and Clutha) do tend to generate fog on occasions. Shame Todd missed the sunrise although he has caught the sunlit gold in the poplars quite well.

    Busted again @Beautox! Yes that is the photoshop fog filter at work (F5 key) – it only took me two days on the computer to get it looking just right ;-)

    Thanks everyone else – go on Fredinthegrass – the walk will do you good :-)

    Cheers – Todd
