Tonle Sap Village, Cambodia

After a hairy ride on the back of a motorbike along a heavily rutted clay road, we came across this village on the banks of Tonle Sap.  During the rainy season, the lake rises and the area floods, hence the houses are built on stilts to keep above the rising waters.  Everything of value, including [...]

Ducks at Lake Rotoiti, NZ

These ducks were still asleep when I photographed Lake Rotoiti near Nelson in New Zealand. I had already taken a great shot the night before of the lake looking down the wharf at twilight. It is amazing how different the two pictures are with different light and different treatment in Camera RAW software. The polarizing [...]

Moeraki Boulders, NZ

The Moeraki Boulders on the East Coast of New Zealand’s South Island look as if they are a set of marbles left behind by a careless giant. The rocks are perfectly round and volcanic in nature (don’t quote me on that). You can see more rocks being exposed in the bank behind the beach. as [...]

Fishermen at Tonle Sap Village, Cambodia

This friendly guy lives in Tonle Sap – the village that gets flooded every year during the rains.  I actually have quite a few great shots of that day so if you like this one, you’ll see plenty more in the Cambodia Gallery. Shutter speed: 1/20 Aperture: 5.6 ISO: 400

Nugget Point Lighthouse, NZ

I woke up about an hour earlier than I needed to get this sunrise shot of the Nugget point light house in New Zealand. I had to scramble up a hill and sit in the cold freezing my nuts off while I waited for sunrise. I took three photos at different exposures  (1 for the [...]

Road to Karame, NZ

This shot was taken on the West Coast road to Karame, heading towards the Kahurangi National Park. It was right on sunset so I did three exsposures using a tripod to capture the colours in the sky and in the puddles and used Photomatix to make a HDR (high dynamic range) exposure. The nikau palms [...]

Te Waikoropupu Springs, NZ

These springs in the South Island of New Zealand claim to be some of the world’s clearest fresh water. If you want to photograph them at their best you need an absolutely windless day without a ripple on the water and a polarising filter. It’s unbelievable what a big difference the filter made to this [...]

Moria Gate

This shot was taken in Moria Gate, Kahurangi National Park, on the west coast of the South Island in New Zealand. The biggest challenge – getting the campervan up the metal road to the car park. It had been raining heavily so the road had a few slips and we could hear the trees scraping [...]

Goldminer's Cottage

This was a pretty easy shot to take. I tried a couple of  different compositions and ended up liking the classic ’3/4 profile’ the best. Strait on and it tended to look a bit boring although looking at it now I should have got down a bit lower. I used bracketed exposures and tweaked the [...]

Kaikorua Tractor

Some things just look better old. Other things, like food in your fridge and Robert Redford, have a more limited use-by date. Debbie and I came across this tractor on a beach just out of Kaikorua which is used by local fishermen to pull their boats in and out of the water. We had already [...]
