Sunrise Walks in Queenstown

Daily Photo – Sunrise Walks in Queenstown

It’s time for some beautiful morning walks along the beach here in Queenstown. Well, I don’t know if it’s really technically a beach because it’s all rocky. I don’t really like rocky beaches… I like the feel of the webbing of my toes in soft sand… also, I’ve always had pretty sensitive feet so I find walking on rocks to be annoying and I’m too lazy to build up a resistance to it. That ship has sailed…

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.

Attack of the Wolves

Daily Photo – Attack of the Wolves

I really doubt this guy would stand a chance against all these wolves. I mean, MAYBE he could take out 2 or 3… maybe 4 with a lucky swing. But, hey, maybe he’s an eternal optimist. I think that, while he is being eaten alive, he’ll be really questioning his optimistic outlook on life.

Walking in Dalefield

Daily Photo – Walking in Dalefield

I went over to visit my friend and take some photos around Dalefield. This area is always pretty, but it really has some unique spots that are sprinkled around. Some are on private land, but people are generally cool with you walking around their land to take photos. I’m not toooooo suspicious. 🙂

The Little Pond Near my Home

Daily Photo – The Little Pond Near my Home

I often walk over here around sunset to this little peaceful pond in Dalefield. You can’t tell from this angle, but it’s actually in the shape of a heart, which fits many of my Disney romantic fantasies. Speaking of which, I think Disney has messed up a lot of people! A friend came over about a week ago and she studied Women’s Issues or something in college… she went on a long diatribe about sexism and stuff. I mostly was tuning her out because she was a woman, but she did have a few good points.

The Backside of the Remarkables before Sunrise

Daily Photo – The Backside of the Remarkables before Sunrise

One early and a rather cold morning, I jumped on a snowmobile and headed up the backside of the Remarkables to get a view. I was not disappointed, but I was rather cold. It really was worth it though. I’ve got these pretty snazzy photographer’s gloves where the fingers still have access but there is a mitten cover that comes over the top to keep them warm. It’s a simple invention, but a welcome one!

The First Morning of the Workshop

Daily Photo – The First Morning of the Workshop

Back before the Apocalypse, I used to have Autumn photography workshops here in Queenstown, New Zealand. On the very first day, we do about a 2km hike from the lake to Queenstown Gardens here. It’s all timed pretty well so we can both see the sunrise over the Remarkables followed by a beautiful photo-stroll through these gardens. Here you can see a couple of my slavish apprentices doing exactly what the benevolent dictator says.
