Sometimes exciting light at the end (or beginning) of the day happens but more often that not that patchy cloud in the sky that promised so much on the trip out the the west coast turns into a full grey blanket that hides any hint of the sun and its associated colourful sky as it slinks below the horizon.

A few weeks ago I posted these images that I took of Lake Taupo at sunset. While the sunset was one of the best I've seen I was not completely happy with the composition of my shots.

Kerosene Creek is the rather uninviting (and unofficial) name of a small naturally heated thermal stream 30 minutes drive south of Rotorua.

I haven't had a chance to do a proper blog post this week but I did manage to capture this sunrise over Auckland city this morning.

My parents recently moved to Motuoapa, a small town on the south eastern edge of lake Taupo, New Zealand's largest lake slap bang in the middle of the North Island.

  This was shot after an early rise yesterday morning, the morning after the coldest night in Auckland this year, and no, I'm not going to mention the temperature for fear of ridicule from those who actually live in cold climates. But it felt damn cold. Imagine my surprise upon arriving to find another photographer already there and soon we were joined by another. We're a mad bunch, almost as mad as all the morning joggers that we...

  Matobo National Park in Zimbabwe, where a group and I tracked wild Rhinos on foot, thats right, on foot. We got close, disturbingly close. That photo below was taken with a lens set at 176mm and is not cropped. 176mm aint terribly long, I'm not sure how far away we were but it was close enough that if the Rhino had decided it didn't like one of us were were doomed. Seriously though, White Rhinos are relatively timid and can be ...

  The Devils Pool is a small rock pool on the lip of Victoria Falls. During the dry season it is possible for people to have an adrenalin pumping dip on at the edge of one of the worlds largest waterfalls. This mad looking chap is one of the guides standing right on the edge waiting for a group of tourists just out of frame (on this occasion my wife and a bunch of friends we were travelling with) to enter the pool. Presumably he i...

A few weeks ago I took a drive out to Bethells Beach (Te Henga) on Aucklands west coast to photograph the sunset. While I waited for sunset I found some seaweed to photograph, turns out that was all I'd get as the sunset was a bit of a fizzer.
