The delicious colours of last Monday evening’s sunset over Tarakena Bay. This fusion was created over 10 seconds of exposure during a 150 degree horizontal pan. The image is 1/3 cropped from a full landscape. I liked this portion for the rocks and waves in addition to the sky. Their earthy tones melding into the watery foreground as if painted by hand, suffused with the glow of fire overhead. It was like painting with my camera. =========================

How beautiful is our Southern night sky??!! It was a cold clear night toward the end of July as @rakairoahori and I made our way around the southwest coast. The sky was incredibly bright from the light of a myriad stars over Hongoeka Bay. Colourful bands of pink and apricot tones lay just above the horizon. This optical phenomenon was airglow. It’s caused by various processes in the upper atmosphere, like the recombination of atoms, photoionized by the sun during the day. Other causes include luminescence from cosmic rays striking the upper atmosphere etc. It was 02:38am and the Milky Way Core was already quite low in the sky. Our astro adventure was off to a great start! The foreground boulder was a timely bonus. You can even see Mana Island on the horizon just beyond the rock. ==========================

The kiss of tidal flow in Tarakena Bay recently. As with the colourfully toned clouds overhead ... all but the rocks were in motion, suspended in time and merged as one. Nature now whispered a new story. ===========================

To think... We are a part of This. Awesome or what?!!
Astro fun with @frankhopfler & @tydesilvaphotography . The Milky Way’s Galactic Core rising to the East. Tarakena Bay on Wellington’s south coast was a great place to start the adventure. ==========================

Seems like ages since I shot a spectacular sunset! Monday was my birthday and so I went out to one of my favourite spots on the south coast, just to bask in nature and do what I love most...capture images. The sunset ended up being one of those ones that just brings people out from the shadows. All around Wellington... people stopped and stared, enthralled by this fiery marbled sky. A population transfixed by nature in all its glory. I was alone on the coast, but judging from the number of local sunset posts, you could see people throughout the city...arms outreached to the sky with phones and cameras...furiously firing off selfies and more.
Sadly I was walking between bays when the sky went ballistic... so not my ideal composition... but happy to have been there in the moment. It was a Happy Birthday to me 🎉🌅

It was 3 degrees and 05:30am at Wainuiomata Beach. A faint glow coloured the horizon adding perceptual warmth to the chilly Winter morning. A solid veil of low cloud shrouded the southern coastline of Wellington. At least the sky remained clear for this unimpeded view of the Milky Way’s Galactic Core. At right, the oscillating beacon of Baring Head lighthouse shines for 9 seconds at a time at 6 second intervals. It can been seen from 18km away. It was surprising for such a dark night, just how much light and colour was present as captured over the long exposure. ==========================

💦 It’s All about Flow 💦
I had stood patiently in the middle of this rock pool for about an hour. The sun was setting, but the incoming tide was still quite low with minimal swell. I knew that the first wave to break the outer wall of rock, would flood over this terrace and cascade into the pool where I was standing. In the fading light, I also knew I needed to keep my shutter speed at just slow enough to blur the water, yet fast enough to retain some of its motion. My hour was well spent as it afforded me the time to simply enjoy being where I was. It also gave me plenty of time to experiment and adjust my settings so that when my moment arrived... I was ready.
Something also worthy of mention... I check my batteries in triggers and remote sensors, torches etc before starting. Nothing worse than waiting all that time only to have a gear malfunction at the end. Except perhaps making your way back to shore in the dark with no torch lol. =========================

Standing in a deep rock pool furthest from shore in the dead of night. Overhead the celestial siblings, Magellanic Cloud galaxies were clearly visible to the naked eye. Not even the southern airglow or distant light pollution over South Island could fade their brilliance this night. Once again... just me...the rocks...the sea.... and the vast night sky ✨

Out where I love to be....On the rocks and in the sea. The light was fading faster than the clouds were moving or the sea lapping. I watched through the afterburners of sunset until darkness before making my way back to shore. Where do you find your Zen place? ===========================

Who’s watching who??
The Pouwhenua at Oruaiti Reserve keeps a watch over Wellington harbour entrance. On this occasion it was 02:35am ANZAC Day. The sky was clear and overhead, a celestial party of Milky Way and Magellanic Cloud galaxies. They flanked above and either side of this iconic carving, watching over our entire coastline. I felt privileged to see this and to be able to compose a shot that included all 4 of these timeless watchers. ==========================

Now you see it... Now you don’t!
I had balanced my way out to the centre of the lagoon atop a rusty pipeline. The surrounding rock outcrops served as a breakwater to the 3m swell on the other side. It was around about now, having committed myself further and further into the lagoon that the tide started bursting through and over the top. Whilst I was still balanced on it, the pipe was engulfed in tide flowing and coming from all directions. Don’t you love it when all the elements come together and you’re still in the middle of it all?! 😂💦=========================

We tried for a heart 💓 and ended up with a wine glass 🍷. But no one was complaining as these two lovelies Ellen @ellenupsidedown and Anna @fortheloveofit plied their graceful poses in Tarakena Bay. Next time we’ll choreograph it beforehand! Be sure to share the love and check out their awesome pages from the links in this pic. ===========================
