"I always liked airports..."

We recently made our way to Perth, Australia, to visit my wife's family. Her grandfather had sadly passed away.

While waiting to return home our flight was delayed as were many flights due to the ash cloud from the Chilean Volcano.

I was reading an Australian photography magazine and a couple of European girls sat down next to us. This girl had a diary, in which she started to record her thoughts. I was listening to music and noticed her her contemplating the next words. I used my iphone to take this shot.

This Tui and her mate were making a big noise in the weekend. They would fly from one tree to another around the area chasing each other. I love the warbling noise they make!

The road to Edoras

While in the South Island skiing at Mt Hutt we drove out to the site where they filmed Edoras for Lord of the Rings. It was some epic scenery, which you would know if you have seen the movies. Being there in person added a whole new level of awesomeness.

Here are a few more shots from the drive:


The valley leading to Helms Deep:

Driving to Edoras. The wind funnels down the valley stirring up massive dust clouds.

Murrays Bay wharf in the morning light

Murrays Bay Wharf at about 8:30 this morning.
I was driving past and decided it would be a great photo op.

Below the wharf is framed by some old pohutukawa tree's. A lone fisherman enjoys the serenity at the end of the wharf:

I added a texture to help bring out the mood of the image. The slight hints of colour on the horizon are accentuated here:
