Well it transpires that when I go on holiday, I go on holiday….. hence my absenteeism from Kiwiblog for the past couple of weeks.

Sarah & I have once again hit the beaches of Northland hard, this time with our kids, Jack & Indi in tow.  Neither of us have ventured further north of Auckland for over 15 years, so we have found the sub-tropical pleasures of the region quite intoxicating – maybe that was just the effects of the (non shifting air) seabreezes ;-)

I will feed you some of our images from this trip over the coming weeks.

Have a great week.

Wednesday Wallpaper | Morning Mist, Lake Wanaka

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.

Sorry for the tardiness on this week’s wallpapering –  I’ve been running a day late (and several bucks short) this week due to the tyranny of school holidays.

This image has always called out to me from the depths of our image archive, but I have never shared it with the world – simply because I could never figure out how to bring the best out of it in post-processing (yes, I am a proud proponent of tasteful photoshoppery).  Fortunately, the problem resolved itself today when I walked past Sarah’s computer and spotted this on her screen – apparently it had called out to her too.  I think she has made it sing.

Wednesday (Just) Wallpaper | The Boardwalk, Okarito

Meandering Boardwalk, Okarito Lagoon, Westland, New Zealand

Welcome to the  tardiest Wednesday Wallpaper post yet.  It has been a frantic day, blog posts and social media have had to slip down the priority list – I toyed with posting this tomorrow, but couldn’t arrive at any catchy strap-line to tie in with Thursday….

This boardwalk is on the Okarito Trig track.  It must have been constructed during more fiscally ebullient times (read: during Helen’s reign) as it is a magnificent exercise in whimsical form and folly.  I love it. Its meandering form really is beautiful to behold and it is much more fun to walk over than the practical and economically sensible alternative – a straight boardwalk.

The rest of the walk is wonderful too and culminates in some redonkulously good views of the Southern Alps.

Hello all and welcome to the PM edition of Wednesday Wallpaper.

I have avoided contentious photos of Victorian-era industrial wastelands this week, though no doubt we’ll be able to fire up some kind of debate with this photo, foreshore…

Back into some classic South Island scenery this week, the oft-photographed Blue Lake in St Bathans.  This image was made using the very last of the sun’s rays while leading a private workshop.  I will be visiting here again this weekend as part of our final winter landscape photography workshop – can’t wait!
