The Egg – Stuck in Customs

The Egg

Here’s one of my favorite short stories in YouTube form! My friend Tim Chang sent this to me… and it’s one of my favorite stories about the fabric of reality that might actually be true!

Queenstown, New Zealand today! Enjoy!

The View From Above Here is a good example of a daily image. I went to the top of the gondola with Tom Anderson to look down on Queenstown, New Zealand from above.I want to sleep up here one night to get the sunrise… if anyone can hook me up with that, drop me a note! :) I’ll bring the hot chocolate!- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.

Jack’s Point in Queenstown I went out with Eden Brackstone the other night to take some photos. After he decided to wade callously into this crystal clear water and ruin the placid reflection, I had about five minutes to contemplate life while the ripples settled down. And then I took this one!Man, I do love this Sony NEX-7. And no, Sony didn’t pay me to say that or give me my camera…- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.

The Tolkienesque Bridge I normally don't put two photos from the same city (or even country!) back-to-back in consecutive days, but I decided to award Queenstown this honor.  It is very high on my list of cities to move to!  I just need to check on a few things like broadband availability and a good spot to plop the family down, and I'll be in business!This is from the main park in Queenstown.  It was as quaint as could be.  The evening light made everything a little bit extra-colorful, and some clever little hobbit-engineer, found it fitting to put this nice little stone bridge across the pond.  It is all quite nice, no?- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.

The Pond and the Sunset Stormclouds I had a wonderful evening with Eden Brackstone, even though he uses a Canon.  I can overlook these trifle matters, but I do not forget them lightly.We were in Gibbston, New Zealand, about 20 minutes from Queenstown.  After a wonderful dinner with his delightful family, I popped out onto his farm to shoot some HDR.  He started recording video on his aforementioned Canon-thing, and put together the little dealio at the link below.  Enjoy!Here is the final photo that was taken just before I we started recording the video.- Trey RatcliffSee the video here at Trey Ratcliff's travel photography blog, Stuck in Customs.

Moonlight Clouds – Queenstown at 7:30 AMThe winter in these southern places make the sunrise rather late! I took this about 7:30 AM in the morning while the moon was still out over the sparkling Queenstown. I set up the tripod on my balcony, and this is our amazing view! I’m renting a Bach here called “The Nest” – and it has incredible views all day long… and all night long too, as you can see! :)- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the entire post at the Stuck in Customs blog.
