  • Davy Jones Last Sunset

    from $160.00

    Open Edition
    While going to get something for tea I could see there was a opportunity to shoot a great sunset, I set up late pushed for time down at north beach, I chose a small rock to be the fore ground hero with the aperture set to 22's iso to 100 gave a one second shutter speed to allow the water to weave its magic around my hero. After enjoying the sunset and shoot it was time to down load the files, there were many good shots to choose from but this one with the eerie figure that looks like Davy Jones being drawn in to a whirlpool and beckoning me to follow him that stood out. If you look to the left of the figure there is a resemblance of the octopus creature the way he was depicted in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies to the right looks like a hand rising up out of the water beckoning one to follow into the whirlpool.

  • Lone Palm

    from $160.00

    Open Edition
    I took this shot in the Bungle Bungles I loved the natural curve from bottom right to top left of the picture the one solitaire palm tree in the middle of the shot I estimated it must be about 60 foot high so that would give you an idea to how big the rock face was, once polarized the rock face began to sparkle the sky turned rich blue.

    from $160.00

    Open Edition
    On a drive back from shooting Lake Tekapo, golden late afternoon light rays were hitting this gorgeous leaning pine tree 30 feet from the dirt track.
    When shooting this, I actually hand held a 20mm lens through the wires of the fence this tree’s structure was just so different and blended beautifully with the background It was uncanny to find one on its own to me it's a Xmas Tree.
