Recent tours to Glenorchy and beyond to paradise and Kinloch just go to show that the most uncomfortable and inhospitable days can give you the best conditions for landscapes with atmosphere and action. Light is soft, clouds add drama; water is on the move and mist and rain increase the mood. The day these images were taken started cold and wet. It was an outing for the Queenstown Photgraphy Club. Everyone in the group was dubious about going out. By days end we were all excited with the images we captured and the fun we had braving the conditions together.
The soft light conditions were perfect for bring out the 10 stop ND filter to really blurr out the water in Lake Wakatipu. I was inspired enough to venture in to the water at Glenorchy to add an enigmatic figure to my image of the three famous trees.
