Spirits of the Aurora timelapse

While honeymooning in Breckenridge Colorado there was a snow sculpting competition held. In February, artists from around the world flocked to a little ski village in Colorado named BRECKENRIDGE! Leading up to their arrival, tons of snow was packed into massive frame boxes to give them a block of hard snow to carve. Over a week they carved some amazing designs then lit them up at night.

Photo Walk Wednesday

One of my mates at work brought his 450D along to work the other day and we went for a wander so he could see how a photographers mind works.

That sparked the idea that every Wednesday we would lug our weapons of choice to work with us and during our lunch hour go for a short photo walk.

Another friend at work is a Wedding Photographer so we picked his brain for hints and tips.


Here JP takes a shot of Warren up against the Pumphouses rustic brick wall.

Here I use the shoot along the wall tip from Warren to shoot JP while Warren makes faces at him from behind me.

There is a nice bunch of Daffodil's growing on the hill on the way down to the pump-house. The ducks, swans and random other water fowl, all seem to use it and a bed as there were a few feathers floating throughout the flowers.

I posted these a few months ago but here are a few more:

If I remember correctly this one was titled "Under the Sea"



I'm also trying a new logo rather than just my name :)

Old Friends



Last Saturday we drove 3 hours south to Papamoa near Mount Maunganui. My Nana turned 80!
I had my trust camera to capture this moment. Nanas friend Mrs Blair and her family traveled from the Coromandel to celebrate the day with her... much to Nana's surprise and delight.

After a hard day hunting birds...

...Chesh likes to take a load off on the couch





Thankfully he didnt catch any birds today. He did try and help with some gardening, he wasn't very helpful though.

The Holy Scriptures

s
At our friends engagement party last year I snapped this old bible. It's a massive tome and has a great weathered look to the leather.
