View over the Southern Alps from Gillespies

Nearly one year waiting for the correct position of the Milkyway the weather window and obviously the time to get to the southern end of the south island... Probably one of my most exciting shoot of 2016 (specially when an Aurora explodes at the same time!) . . . . .

Sunrise at cathedral cove. . I don't often have the opportunity to go to the north island and specially in the Coromandel but last week end was an opportunity not to miss. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate and gave me only 10mn of good light in an entire week end... Incredible how many shots you can pack in 10mn when you are motivated! . . . . . . .

Ōkārito Lagoon This week I am sharing another location in glacier country on the #westcoastnz The place is well known by the locals for its colony of Rowi kiwis. It is also a great spot if you want to get some shots of the alps reflecting in the water. I strongly recommend coming there at slack tide and preferably the high tide one to maximize your chances of reflection. Other tip: preferably come in winter when the mountains are snow capped. . . . . . . .

Peters Pools  Last week I was sharing with you where to get reflexions around Fox Glacier. This week and next week I will do the same but around Franz Joseph. The first and easy option is to go to Peters pools.  This lake was formed by ice melting amongst glacial moraine about 200 years ago. It is 10mn away from the carpark which makes it a very good option for sunrise even if you don't have a head torch (which you should have... at all time!). The place is quite sheltered which makes it…

The Tor One of those unplanned sunrises with @geoffreidnz .  I am not really good at going shooting with people as I find it hard to do two things at the same time (the guys out there will probably relate to that!). The result is that I often end up not shooting or not talking which tends to frustrate me either way... That morning was an exception though: great sunrise and good catch up with a friend. The perfect start of the day. A few hours later I was back in Christchurch…

Gillespies Lagoon. If you want great reflections of Mt Cook and Tasman but are looking for a more intimate place this lagoon offers a very good alternative to the famous lake Matheson.  To get there just get passed the famous lake and keep going until you hit the gravel road and then... keep going until you hit the beach. This lagoon is located on the northern part of the beach. the walk is supposed to be 45mn but can easily be ran in 15mn if you are in a hurry! While the lagoon is generally…

Sunset on Hooker valley The path to Hooker lake is about 5km and can be done in an hour and a half. Perfect spot for sunset or sunrise. You don't even have to get to the lake itself to get amazing views on Mt Cook. . . . . . . . .

This simple photo sums up what usually comes to mind when thinking of New Zealand's west coast: crazy sunsets drifted woods and fires... But there is actually more to it than this. Over the next weeks I will share some of my favourite spots in glacier country and give you some tips on when they look the best... and no there will not be any picture of Matheson!  Thank you @westcoastnewzealand for having us. 3 days 3 beautiful sunsets 3 surprising sunrises and not a single drop of water…

Fisherman Island. Taken two weeks ago while visiting @ilovenelsontasman  Usually one of the first island you see when visiting the Abel Tasman national park. Great to be able to see it from a different angle! . . . . . . .
