Essence of the Catlins.
So there comes a time, towards the end of a grey day, when the high cloud that's been draining the life out of your photos all day long finally tears open low on the far horizon, just a bit.
And that is the time when all the sunlight that has been building up behind the clouds pours through the tear, and flows over the rolling hills to crash against the sea mist...
This is the time that the watchful photographer will abandon all current activities and plans, and go rushing off up the narrow gravel road mumbling "I must have height! I must find a vantage point! Time is of the essence!"
I won my sprint, and gained this golden reward.
Curio Bay, The Catlins, Southland, New Zealand. July 2014.
