Contest Winner Announcement!

Sorry for the delay folks, my computer crashed a few days ago, and I just spent 4 days on a quick trip to the mountains. But without further delay I am pleased to announce that we have selected the name “Two Wanderers” from the submissions recieved. A big congratulations goes out to Alexander Otto from deviantArt […]

Karekare Beach – Name This Photo Contest.

Here’s another photo from our time spent at Karekare Beach. Be sure to read the contest details at the bottom of this post! Buy the print here. This photo was taken after all the color had disappeared from the sky. I found these two shells that had washed up on the beach, just waiting for […]

Karekare Beach – Panatahi Island Sunstar.

This was taken a few minutes after Panatahi Island Sunset. This was the kind of sun-star I was hoping for in the last shot, but it was not meant to be. The clouds had already lost most of their color and so I chose to frame a simpler composition, focusing more on the “island” and the […]

Karekare Beach – Panatahi Island Sunset.

After capturing Golden Light, and with the sun nearly setting, I turned my attention back to the composition I had selected earlier. This is the rock formation I had mentioned in the previous blog post, and I actually found out through Google maps, that it’s called Panatahi Island. I waited for the sun to break […]

Karekare Beach – Golden Light.

Continuing  from  Piha Beach, we headed south to Karekare.  Arriving here well before sunset, it gave us plenty of time to look for compositions. My main goal here was to take a shot of the rock formation that juts out of the ocean just off the coast. I brought along an iPhone with The Photographer’s […]

Piha Beach – New Zealand.

This was the next area we visited after shooting Rangitoto Volcano. It was a small stop on our way to Karekare, and it was here we saw our first New Zealand beach. The sand was blazing hot beneath our feet, and this spot where the water sometimes came up to was perfect for taking off […]

Rangitoto Volcano – New Zealand.

After the long flight to New Zealand, on beautiful V Australia, we landed at the airport around 5 pm   (If any of you have never had the chance to fly with them, you’re missing out!) We then picked up our sweet 1984 Mitsubishi Camper-van (see photo at the bottom of this post). After getting a few supplies for […]

California Coast – Rancho Palos Verdes.

Our last day in California, I was really hoping to get down to Laguna Beach for sunset before our flight to New Zealand that same night. I had been researching Laguna Beach for quite some time leading up to the trip, because of the interesting coastline and rock formations . There was a flash flood […]

California Coast – Corona Del Mar State Park (and good news!)

Another long break from posting. But this time I am happy to say that Anna and I bought a condo, and we’re almost settled in. Sure feels nice to break away from paying rent, and own something of our own. Here’s another image from our time in California. It was a  challenge to try and […]

Back to blogging and photos from the start of New Zealand trip.

Well after a long absence, I am back to processing photos and blogging! We have been super busy trying to get a place to live before the 18th of March, and that has taken up a lot of our time. I’ve finally begun to start going through all my 5000+ photos from our trip to […]
