"Pukaki Patience..."

Shot at Lake Pukaki, Mackenzie Country, NZ

I played a game of patience with this rather large flock of Pigeons.. The scene was clearly beautiful but it needed something extra to take it some place really special.. Needless to say, I won.. they certainly played a tough game thou and I thought Id loose a few times, just another 10 minutes.. another 10.. another.. eventually I got the extra added element I was looking for on this beautiful back lit winter scene with the summit of Mt Cook visible in the distance.. Super glad the images came out, at the time I was concerned about flaring as I was shooting almost directly toward the sun.. but no need to be concerned.. this image is going to print beautifully..

"They Came from the Sea.."

Shot at Motukiekie Beach, West Coast, South Island, NZ

There are a couple of areas along the West Coast near the Motukiekie Islands which are crowded by Starfish. In the dark it can be challenging to walk amongst them without standing on them, but I made 100% effort to avoid disrupting them and their surroundings.. I found this little scene and saw potential in it, so i spent a bit of time framing it up and waiting for the right water flow to add interest to the foreground.. Photography Yoga was needed on this shot for both the tripod and myself as I crouched with my backpack on ready to pull my camera incase of any rouge waves..

"Kahurangi Oasis.."

Shot in Kahurangi National Park, Karamea, NZ

Walking in the bush whilst it has been pouring with rain for nearly 24hrs has some benefits.. I was fortunate to literally stumble upon this scene whilst I was exploring some areas in Kahurangi National Park near Karamea.. As the sky was dark, I used a 2 second exposure which added a nice painterly feel to the water as the drops fell from the sky.. I had to remove a few dead fell branches from the scene walking slowly and carefully not to churn up the water, but I could see the potential immediately when my eyes saw this..

Kahurangi National Park comes alive in the rain, the rivers swell very quickly and the thick lush rainforest glistens with its coating of fresh water.. If you have never walked in a rainforest in the pouring rain, I highly recommend it.. Take an umbrella (if you are photographing), and a good waterproof jacket and trousers and you are set for a unique adventure..

"At The Rock Show.."

I promised myself this morning I would go somewhere different today.. but somehow this rock pulls me back to her every morning.. I shot at this location yesterday morning too..

Pretty sure I can claim her as my own given the countless early morning hours Ive spent in her company, no one knows her like I do..

My kinda Rock Show..

Last night, my backyard here in Queenstown, New Zealand was rather beautiful..

The Milky Way rises over the Remarkables with the Aurora Australis still glowing strongly. I used a small hand torch to paint in detail in the foreground to create some foreground interest and depth.

most of the time the camera gets in the way of the moment.. the more you shoot the less you interact with the camera and the more you experience the moment away from the camera.. :)

"Summers Slumber..."

Shot at Sunrise, Lake Alexandrina, Mackenzie Country, NZ

There are some moments in life you look back on and think, its almost too good to be true.. That was the case when I arrived in the Mackenzie Country to some beautiful (but chilly) weather.. My one day shooting on my journey back home and I couldn't have planned it any better.. What I could have planned for was wintery conditions, having been on the road for 25 days in reasonably mild weather, I had to deal with -17 degrees Celsius on this morning with my gloves no where to be found.. My mantra for the morning was 'Pain is Temporary, Photography is Forever'..

I can look back at the many images I took this morning and say that sometimes in life the 'pain' we think we are dealing with really does pail in comparison to what a vast number of people out there have to deal with on a daily basis.. And more often than not it is only temporary.. Push through those mental or physical barriers in life where ever possible, ask for help from others if need be, but guaranteed you'll come out the other side all the better for it.. with memories and many stories to tell as a result of it..

This place was clearly a rabbits winter wonderland with very few people footprints down there. I love the patterns of the rabbits journeys about the upturned boats. I feel blessed to have had such a gorgeous landscape to work with and beautiful radiant dawn hues on this morning.. Sometimes the stars do align..

"Morning Meybille Bay Mist.."

Shot at Meybille Bay, West Coast, NZ

On my journey to Golden Bay I spent a fair bit of time scouting along the roadside around Punakaiki.. Whilst I found a few locations for future shots, the light wasn't right at the right time of day.. On this morning I had a sneaky suspicion that the mist would continue to build, so I hung about for quite a while. As the sun rose higher the mist grew the sun was heating up the forest and land and creating a thick misty haze. It became incredibly muggy due to all the recent rain and the first real decent bit of sunshine I had seen in days, so much so that my lenses began to fog up.

This has to be one of the most beautiful coastal views on the West Coast.

"Snow in Skippers.."

Shot in Skippers Canyon, Queenstown NZ

A beautiful morning this morning and I felt a huge sense of relief photographically.. I know it sounds strange, but I feel reunited with a long lost friend.. Summer is passing by and I get to spend time in my backyard in my favorite season again..

This morning was a small glimpse of things to come.. Its currently snowing now, about an inch has settled on my balcony.. Its amazing how this land changes presence with the seasons.. who knows might not even get an autumn this year.. I haven't even started my autumn photography schedule.. crazy.. but fun!!.. Mornings like this keep be driven to explore so much more..

Landscape Photographer based in Queenstown, New Zealand..
Introduction
Hi All, My name is Jason, I am a Landscape photographer based in Queenstown New Zealand... I am a photography fanatic and will often be out shooting this beautiful world of ours when ever I can... 

Based in Queenstown New Zealand gives me access to some of the most amazing light I have ever seen, that helps me on my journey of life.. The camera is a portal into a world many of us do not see, and I love to share my experiences with you all.. 

Feel free to comment or chat on anything I post, every one has an interesting story to tell.. 

Hope you are well, and thanks for stopping by.

I wake up TOO early without an alarm clock.. good if you are a landscape photographer, bad if you want to sleep..
