Do you find it hard to visualise how photos would look on your wall? I’ve mocked up a few of my photos as canvas prints to show how they would look once they’re hung. I might be a tiny bit biased, but I think they’d look great on any wall or commercial space!
1. Hoopers Inlet, Otago Peninsula
The coastline around Sandymount is just breathtaking, and only a 30 minute drive from Dunedin. On this particular morning, the wind was blowing a gale and it was freezing cold, but it was my last chance on this trip to get some sunrise photos from the area. Initially I struggled to find a decent composition but then I came along this fence line leading down the hill which I liked. However, the sunrise itself wasn’t great due to low clouds blocking the sun on the horizon so the light wasn’t too good. Although I was keen to head back to the warmth of my car, I decided to wait around for 20 minutes or so just to see if the light would improve. Luckily I did because once the sun got a bit higher, a gap in the clouds let the morning light stream through creating this amazing scene.
2. Redwoods Forest, Rotorua
The Redwoods – Whakarewarewa Forest is a fantastic place to visit in Rotorua. It’s got a great network of mountain biking and walking tracks set amongst a huge forest of Californian Coast Redwoods. I took this photo using a wide angle lens while looking straight up.
3. Auckland City from Mount Eden
A classic view of Auckland city from Mount Eden. This photo was taken just after sunrise, when the sun peeked above the horizon and bathed the scene in warm, golden light.
4. Matapouri Bay, Tutukaka Coast
Just 2.5 hours drive from Auckland, the Tutukaka coast is a popular holiday spot and has some amazing beaches. This shot was taken early morning at Matapouri Bay.
5. Muriwai gannet colony, Auckland
I love colour in my photos, but sometimes black and white works well too (and in some cases, better than the colour version). This is one of my favourite black and white photos, taken at the Muriwai gannet colony just before sunset.
