"Despite the weather map looking less than promising this week, I took the chance & made the 6 hour journey to Hawkes Bay. I still might find some opportunities for good light? The following morning, I was awake at 5am in order to get here in good time & I captured various views around the Tukituki river, but clouds blocked the sun before I could record this scene. Oh no! So another early start it was, but this time I was rewarded with clear uninterrupted light. Great! I used my 240mm telephoto lens in order to focus on the intricate details, which accentuated the changing seasons & contrasts of the land beautifully. The result is a unique 4.2GB file, which allows it to be printed to tremendous sizes, yet still retain all of the very fine details!"
