Nocturnal Mt Maunganui

I headed down to the Mount a couple of nights ago to shoot the stars. Conditions looked perfect, but a whole lot of cloud blew over and ruined my star shots unfortunately. This was all I took away, but I did manage to get back down there the next night and there wasn't a cloud in the sky! Watch this space to see more...

Selling my Nikkor 50mm f1.8 D lens. Excellent condition. No scratches, dents, or mould. Comes with Marumi UV filter. Way cheaper than the G model and just as good (if not better according to Ken Rockwell – “The Nikon 50mm f/1.8 G weighs more, costs more, and does the same thing, but with instant manual-focus override, …

Waiheke Island Sunset

http://j.mp/1ZQIhch

I had the opportunity recently to visit #Waiheke with some friends to visit some vineyards and do some wine-tasting. I haven't been there since I was a child, and I had a blast! It was a long, hot day, with lots of walking and lots of wine, so I was happy to say goodbye to the sun for the night and got this shot off despite leaving my tripod in #auckland.

For Sale: Nikkor 16-35mm f4 VR Lens

Selling my Nikon AF-S 16-35mm f4.0 G ED VR lens. This is an amazing wide zoom lens. Great for landscape photography. I’ve only owned it just over a year and only selling it because I’m switching systems. I’ve taken very good care of it, so it’s in great condition. Pretty much as new. Comes with a screw-on glass UV filter. Can ship anywhere in NZ.

Mission Bay Sunset, Lake Taupo, New Zealand

Grab the high-res wallpaper for September 2014 here: http://j.mp/1sVNAFP

I was fortunate to drive past this spot at the South end of Lake Taupo recently while driving back up the North Island from Wellington just after the sun had set. The sky was still a gorgeous mix of orange and blue. These rocks are strewn all the way along the water's edge, so it wasn't hard to find a great composition. I love when things just come together nicely :)

True +David Garratt. There are some sandy beaches further along but they're not quite as photogenic!

Not bad for a small town pub. My chicken burger was good by my brother's steak sandwich was terrible.
