Another junk photo... :-)
This time at sunrise on a cold calm morning over Lake Tai in the Northern Zhejiang province, China.
Although a relatively clear day this is one occasion that a little Chinese smog was a blessing. Its not often you can shoot directly into the sun with no blown out highlights!

A strong Himba woman stands proud in front of a tree in a remote village in Namibia.

For this image I shot from a low angle to allow me to include the sun from behind the tree. This angle also helped to accentuate the strength of the woman.

I remotely fired two Nikon SB5000 speedlites from the side - they were teamed with a portable softbox and provided the smooth side light.

I woke at 5 am this morning and could see the milky way glowing through my bedroom window so decided to get up and go for a quick walk :-) It was a beautiful frosty morning with just a hint of moonlight on the mountains.

This is a stitch panorama from 7 vertical images taken on the new Nikon D5 with the 14-24 lens. ISO 4000.

I drove from our new house into town today to catch up with my parents and I must say that the view on this commute is always amazing.
Taken from the roadside at Bennett's Bluff where the spectacular landscape unveils differently every day!

It sure beats the motorways... ;-)

A string of Cape Gannets do a fly by as a Southern Right Whale salutes the South African sunset. Gaansbai, South Africa.
This image was taken from the shore with a 400mm lens.
I have had many so called "lucky' moments in my career but without being cliche they are all moments when "preparation meets opportunity". It certainly doesn't always happen but if you are not out there and ready it never does...

Enjoy the journey! :-)

Snorkelers in the Yasawa Islands, Fiji.

The traditional Bilibili (bamboo raft) off Barefoot Manta makes a fantastic snorkeling base to explore the reef.

This was taken earlier in the year for Awesome Adventures Fiji but we have kept the images under wraps until the brochure release.
It is great to see an image from this series featured on the cover :-).

I have been working with Awesome Adventures for close to 20 years and it is so much fun to have creative license to come up with cool new angles and concepts.
It was a week after this that cyclone Winston struck and caused so much devastation. One of the best ways to help is to visit and support the the Tourism Industry which is such a vital part of Fijian economy.

Deadvlei is a white clay pan located near the more famous salt pan of Sossusvlei, inside the Namib-Naukluft Park in Namibia.
The clay pan was formed after rainfall, when the Tsauchab river flooded, creating temporary shallow pools where the abundance of water allowed camel thorn trees to grow. When the climate changed, drought hit the area, and sand dunes encroached on the pan, which blocked the river from the area.
The trees died around 700 years ago as there was no longer enough water to survive. The remaining skeletons of the trees,... more »

"California Dreaming"

It has been fantastic few days visiting the head offices of Lowepro. It s really nice to meet the people behind the great products and those that I have been dealing with for so long.

I gave a presentation this morning was very well received so thanks to all that attended :-)

As this is my first time in the San Francisco area I felt the need to go and photograph the Golden Gate Bridge last night.

This is a panorama made up of eight vertical images from my Nikon D810.
To achieve the best results I manually set the exposure and white balance and exposed for the bridge. I love the feel of the soft afterglow of the sunset on the right balanced by the city lights on the left. The final image is 15 500 pixels wide.

Wild dog pups, Botswana.

The African wild dog, whilst an extremely efficient hunter is the most endangered large land carnivore on the planet. 
The current population has been estimated at roughly 39 subpopulations containing 6,600 adults, only 1,400 of which are fully grown. The decline of these populations is ongoing, due to habitat fragmentation, human persecution, and disease outbreaks :-(

On the last day of our South Island Photo Tour we were treated to super stormy and dramatic skies in Milford Sound. At times it almost looked as if Mitre Peak was erupting!
For this image I used a slow shutter speed to emphasise the drama in the fast moving clouds.

"The Great Wall of China"

whilst on the Chinese Golden hour theme...

I took the path less travelled with a local to access this remote part of the Great Wall called "Wang Jing Lou".. Loaded with camera gear, it was a grueling steep hike in blistering heat for the first hour followed by a hands and feet clamber / climb navigating our way up the side of a cliff for another couple of hours to reach this location.

The views were spectacular and there was not another person in sight! It is a very rugged area and the wall is unrestored so it had an incredible amount of character and mystique to it. I found myself in awe just wondering the sights that this wall had witnessed...

The setting sun fired out the "god rays" and beautifully lit the layers upon layers of mountains sprawled before us.

The setting sun fired out the "god rays" and beautifully lit the layers upon layers of mountains sprawled before us.

We stayed late to watch the sunset and the full moon rise before the journey back down the mountain around 11pm.

After all of the stories of smog and massive crowds of visitors at all of the "good" vantage points on the Wall it was quite surreal to have this totally to ourselves in complete silence... In Awe!

Evening light in Deadvlei, Namibia.
Deadvlei is a white clay pan located near the more famous salt pan of Sossusvlei, inside the Namib-Naukluft Park in Namibia.
The clay pan was formed after rainfall, when the Tsauchab river flooded, creating temporary shallow pools where the abundance of water allowed camel thorn trees to grow. When the climate changed, drought hit the area, and sand dunes encroached on the pan, which blocked the river from the area.
The trees died around 700 years ago as there was no longer enough water to survive. The remaining skeletons of the trees, though not petrified, the wood does not decompose because it is so dry. (Wikipedia)

A Himba girl caring for a baby (not hers) in Otjikandero Village, Damara Land, Namibia.

Our first Namibia Photo Tour for 2016 is fully booked. Please email info@cmphoto.co.nz if you are interested in other 2016 dates :-)

Featuring wildlife, culture and landscapes.

The people of Otjikandero live in the the traditional Himba ways, they use ochre and ash to decorate their hair, ochre on their bodies and very ornate jewellery on their wrists and ankles. The women also use smoke and ash for cleaning themselves. An amazingly intact culture in these isolated areas.

ISO 200. f5 for 1/320 second.
Lexar Pro 1000x CF. Lowepro Protrekker 450.
