Coleridge Valley, New Zealand

A casual, unplanned detour through New Zealandís back country led me to this amazing image. Towering snow capped mountains rising up forming a sweeping valley with a clear blue river running through the middle. This place left an impression of just how rugged New Zealandís South Island can be. Fotoman 617 with Schneider 90mm, Fuji Velvia ISO 100, centre filter, .6ND filter, f22 @1/2 second. Limited Edition: 300

Purakaunui Falls, New Zealand

The Catlins coastline along the southern end of New Zealandís South Island was one of contrast. Rugged coastline could be found on one side of the road and lush forests could be found on the other side waiting to be explored. This waterfall was one of many to be found along this coastline. Fotoman 617 with Schneider 90mm, Fuji Velvia ISO 100, centre filter, .9ND filter, f22 @15 seconds. Limited Edition: 300

Milford Sound, New Zealand

Milford Sound had many moods throughout the day dictated by the weather. This image was taken in June where the sun was low and rain was plentiful. A break in the clouds allowed rays of sunshine to dance across the sound lasting only moments before the day turned grey and rainy again.

Paparoa Coast Line, New Zealand

Paparoa National Park located along New Zealandís West Coast is dotted with secluded coves, beaches and rock formations. On this day stormy weather from the north had been chasing me down the coast allowing only a fleeting moment to capture this image before the rain caught me.

Waipapa Light House, New Zealand

While setting up to take this image a large seal had beached itself on the sand before the light house. Its curious nature led it up over the sand dunes, along the path eventually to within a few metres of where I was standing. It took a lunge at me and barked letting me know it was time for me to move on. Fotoman 617 with Schneider 90mm, Fuji Velvia ISO 100, centre filter, .9ND filter, f16 @1 second. Limited Edition: 300

Milford Sound, New Zealand

Milford Sound had somewhat intrigued me when I discovered that it was subject to tidal movements. At low tide I moved out over the high tide line exploring the sandbars dotted with driftwood, rocks and sea shells.

Nugget Point, New Zealand

Previous imagery of this light house had already led my curious intent to photograph it in this mood and setting before I had even set to visit New Zealand. I had visualised it as being the last place on earth to be found as refuge as wild weather gathered round pounding against the rugged coastline.

McCrackens Rest, New Zealand

Wild southern swell was pounding itself up along the pebbled coastline. This rugged coastline covered with washed up seaweed and drift wood was an ideal setting leading towards the snow capped mountains in the background.
