Christmas 2011

The Pohutukawa trees always put on their red decorations for Christmas in New Zealand.
At Waiake beach in Torbay they surround the shore and cling to the cliffs.

A typical Kiwi summer; Pohutukawas, sandy beaches and sun.

Playing Chicken

A chicken at the Auckland Zoo... although it looks like an abandoned building, it really is at the Zoo. There were a bunch of lil chicks too

Video game portraits


After reading this article http://kotaku.com/5866739/the-man-behind-the-worlds-best-video-game-screenshots?tag=fine-art I was inspired to go and look at old screen shots of when we used to play World of Warcraft a lot.

I added some gaussian blur to the back ground to give it the shots a depth of field effect.

Murray's Bay Sunset

While the sun sets over Auckland, Rangitoto Island looms in the background with a group of young men jumping off the wharf into the salty water.

This is a composite of a few images time-lapsed to the the movement around the rocks.

FIREWORKS!

Westfield put on a great fireworks show on the 25th of November.

They were lighting their Xmas Tree and I think there was some charity involved /shrugs. I was too busy to take any notice of the details because of all the awesome explosions! Then we all got excited when the pontoon floating on the lake caught fire. Unfortunately it didn't explode.

Here are a couple of shots showing the epicness of the fireworks :)
