Light

This was taken one warm summer evening earlier this week when we were visiting family in Alexandra. There’s a lovely track alongside the Manuherikea River and these daisies and some wild poppies were growing in the gravel on the river bank. I processed this by using just two textures, one from Tex Box One and […]


Walking the dog

At this time of the year when our evenings are long and it doesn’t get dark until around 10pm so we often go for a walk on the beach after dinner.We weren’t alone at the beach this night, as well as the few walkers, runners and dogs there was also a solitary sea-lion basking in […]


fishing trip

On Sunday afternoon just to curb the midwinter ‘Cabin fever’ we drove up towards the mountains. The light was clear and the air was crisp, but this time I diverted, hung a left and drove to ‘Lake Salagou’.Normally its a tourist nightmare, being the biggest and most famous lake in our area of the languedoc, […]


light at the end of the block

I’d been meaning to capture the sun set light on this building for ages, over looking our central market hall, this elegant shop/apartment building must have some very strange shaped rooms!I’ve not done much to it, the camera had its polarizor filter on, the textures were just used to bring out the golden tones I […]


red box

Back in early July we made a special trip to the beach at sunset just to photograph the full moon rising over the Mediterranean.The light was superbly opalescent, and I was lucky, as I captured several nice images as well as the later moonrise. This is one, a huge red container, not sure why it […]

Family Walk

Another day another beach! I took this last weekend when we went for a quick walk at Doctors Point near Dunedin. Since my family isn’t cooperative when it comes to photos I have to make the most of any opportunities when it comes to getting some human interest in my photos, taking photos of distant […]


Gilded

This is in the south of France in my local languedoc area.There were many old windmills, but these are fast disappearing.This one overlooks my old village as seen from a farmers side road.I’d never seen it before the other evening! For this bucolic sunset scene I used three flypaper textures,two of them doubled.Bruised Saffron Soft […]


over a hill

During the golden hour, I came across a vineyard bordering a pine woods, and had to stop for a quick shoot.Its a simple two texture combo, Caramel Soft (full blur) with the soft light setting @ opacity 92%.Necropolis again with soft light @ 100% opacity and fill @ 79%.A slight vignette was also used to […]


Patong beach in Phuket

To spice up this Thai beach landscape I used just one Flypaper texture,Apple Crumble @ Full Blur filter mode and Overlay @ 82%. This resort was badly damaged by the tsunami several years ago.Many locals and visitors lost their lives. Patong in Phuket, pictured above was also the location for the opening scenes from’The Beach’ […]
