For this weeks Monday Motivator I decided to bring you a photograph which works on a couple of levels for me. In amongst our busy lives I love the absolute calm and simplicity of this image. A classic case of where ‘less is more‘ – relying on the simple composition and strong colours to create something stirring.
I often find myself making multiple visits to locations before I ‘get the shot’ – and in this case I visited this location over a dozen times in the very early morning before finally getting what I was looking for. I had taken some very nice images on those earlier trips but for Rangitoto I wanted something special. It all came together beautifully on this particular morning when the harbour was still and I was treated to an absolutely stunning pre-dawn light show.
This photograph was captured with a six second exposure taken at f45 on Fuji Velvia 50 asa film.
