After I dropped off my son Ethan for Outward Bound in Picton, I drove the long way back to take some photos. I got the quad out to get this one of these cool boat houses. Obviously, it was low tide, so I don’t totally love the photo, as I think it would be incredible at high tide with still water to make a cool reflection shot. But, you gotta take what you can get.
Today we have another how-to video for Passport Sunday Members! It joins the hundreds of others that are in there waiting for you to discover them! In today’s video, I work with a panorama of a beautiful vineyard near Picton, New Zealand.

As much as I love Aurora HDR, it still has a few problems that you have to correct with Photoshop. It’s less than 1% of the time, but this is one of those cases!
NOTE: If this is your first time seeing a 360 Video, note you can grab the screen and look anywhere!

Daily Photo – Along the Coast Near Haast
I took a road trip up to Picton with Ethan to get him in and out of Outward Bound. There are two ways to get up there, and I chose the one that was just about an hour longer so I could head up the west coast. It’s wild and raw and hardly anyone takes that path… It was my first time to notice this incredible area where the Tasman Sea is undercutting the forest. Amazing, eh?
Today’s Daily Photo is about 20,000 pixels across, but here is a detail of one of the photos that went into the massive panorama.
Daily Photo – The Wood Comes Down the Valley
After I dropped off Ethan, I began a random drive around Picton and the north island to find some new scenes. Almost immediately, I came upon this tremendous logging operation. It was impressive to watch all these huge logs being dropped off and then transported to this ship. I assume (but not sure) that this ship then takes all of these logs to China.
