Below the snow line


Recommended Posts


Following my earlier snowy post, here are a few more shots from the same trip, but lower down the mountains.



Remarkables - the snow shots were taken behind the ridge in the centre of the picture, with Queenstown down below in the foreground.



Looking west, somewhere beyond the mountains and across the ocean is home!



Steamer on the lake, the mountains of pic #1 in the background.



Sunset over the lake.  Slipped the camera in my pocket on the way out for dinner and managed to grab this shot.  I nearly didn't bother taking the camera with me, which would have been a shame.


All taken with Fuji X-E3, first three using 18-55 and the last using 27 f/2.8.

      For those of you sweating through those Northern Hemisphere summer heatwaves, a little snow from down here.  I had a few days over in New Zealand last week.

      Double Cone summit above Remarkables Ski Area

      Shadow Basin  - I didn't realise at the time, but that flat area in the centre contains a small lake, and I just happened to ski over it!😧

       Wye Creek valley and mountains beyond the southern limit of the ski area.

      Looking back into the ski area from the same point as the picture above.

      Clouds  I was lucky much of the time that the clouds were either down below or up above or even both at the same time, but quite clear where I was.  As the sun started to drop in the late afternoon, things could look quite dramatic.

      More Clouds, somehow managing to stay out of the valley!
      All shot with X-E3 and 27 f/2.8.  I wanted to keep the set up light and relatively compact to avoid damage - I suspect I may have rolled over it a couple of times😖.  Despite it's small size, I didn't have any problem operating the camera with thin gloves on and could almost get away with it using thicker gloves as long as I just stuck to the main settings.  No problems with the cold, although I would only take a couple of photos before putting the camera back in the bag - it didn't get above 0C most days.

      A combination of Barnes Creek entering the Lake Crescent and the wind blowing waves against the silhouette of the tree root gave me the impression it was a swimming dragon. I also like how the sunset created a convenient X.

      A project of mine is to make one shot photographs that appear to have layers or some kind of pixelroom effects applied but are completely done in camera. This was of a tree root floating in a lake. My goal was to make it appear as though two images were stacked.
