A Soft River Near Mount Cook

Passport Su…Monday

If you’re a Passport Member then today you’ll get to see a new edit from New Zealand near Mount Cook. It was a pretty simple photo to process but you can see how I used the polarizing filter, which I almost never use. Enjoy!

Paradise

Passport Sunday

Uploading now… available Monday. Sorry for the delay! The NFT world is a fast-changing beast!

Daily Photo – Paradise

Only New Zealand would actually have a little town called Paradise. It’s not even really a town, but an area at the end of the road past Glenorchy that has a few farms and a few little places to rent. The hikes are unbelievable and you see scenes like this in every direction.

Tekapo Lupins

Daily Photo – Tekapo Lupins

In the Spring of each year, the lupins come out to play. Some local Kiwis don’t like them because they think of it as a weed. Well, as far as weeds go, they are pretty spectacular.

Mitre Peak in the Fjords

Daily Photo – Mitre Peak in the Fjords

The far southern tip of the South Island of New Zealand has an endless network of beautiful fjords. For some reason, this area is called Milford Sound, even though it’s technically a fjord. It’s beautiful any time of the year, but every now and then, if you are patient, you can see an amazing sunset.

Hawea

Daily Photo – Hawea

Lake Hawea is another beautiful and relatively unpopulated lake in New Zealand. Every time I drive over here to take photos, I think, “Wow I should really come over here more.”

Milford Sound Dolphins

Daily Photo – Milford Sound Dolphins

I feel like seeing a dolphin is a bit like seeing a unicorn. They are so rarely seen, but these two came up to ride the wave in front of our boat. I get excited like a little kid when I see dolphins. Also, I think it kinda looks like they are holding hands.

Queenstown Night

Daily Photo – Queenstown Night

This is where I live! Queenstown is on the South Island of New Zealand and it is a big destination for snow sports and all other sorts of adventure activities. This is one of my favorite places to watch the city below and it’s also a launching point where I would paraglide off the edge and soar across the city before landing in a little park below.

Tekapo

Daily Photo – Tekapo

Lake Tekapo is one of the countless glacier fed lakes where the water takes on a beautiful level of clarity. Like many lakes in New Zealand, nobody actually lives by the lake so it maintains an idyllic purity.

The Making Of

In today’s video, you’ll see me do a rather aggressive HDR treatment and then do some final alignment in Photoshop.

Daily Photo – Tunnels of Paris

I took this around midnight one evening while I was meandering around Paris. It’s really such a beautiful city to get lost in. Here’s a hot tip, btw. A lot of times. these photos will come out quite “orange” so it’s good to set your camera’s white balance to Tungsten to push the colors back into the cooler area.
