The Pink Sunset in Milford

You might remember one of my favorite photos of Milford. Man, I never know if people just assume I dramatically color these things in Photoshop or not. I do unapologetically love post-processing, but that doesn’t mean that I dramatically change the colors. This is a pretty good example. This video is just a bit of b-roll while I was taking the shot… not much how-to beyond camera specs or anything… just some quick video so you can see what it looked like from another perspective!

Sunset in Milford Sound    I slept in my sleeping bag under the stars this night. It was very peaceful after seeing the pink milky sound under Mitre Peak.I took this right before I left New Zealand down in Milford Sound. I was in a bit of a hurry (you know how things get rushed before a trip), and I left the house without my tent. All I had was a sleeping bag, but it’s a good one.I slept under some trees that were tall and seemed to be leaning inwards while I looked up. Not long after that, I fell asleep…- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the entire post at the Stuck in Customs blog.

Daily Photo – The Towering Night Temple

I was walking through this street with my new friends Uday Phalgun and Priscilla Dorresteijn one evening. We stopped every few buildings to take photos. The street was fairly well lit and there was quite a bit of commotion. I did my best to get long exposures that stayed quite dark so that the people were blurred out and I could keep the dark essence of the scene. I went into manual mode to accomplish this on the NEX — setting a very high aperture and a long shutter speed.
