Time to take some pictures

By Brendan Moyle 15/04/2015

One of the things I like to do after an expedition overseas is decompress. That usually means heading out with a camera and enjoying the NZ scenery. No meetings, no crowds of people, no airport departure lounges or packed queues. So, after the last trip to China (late March) it’s time to appreciate NZ again.

It is almost a cliche to say it, but we do live in a very beautiful part of the world.  This month I’ve been taking photos with a 20mm lens, as a kind of personal challenge.  It’s one of those limits that gets you thinking about compositions.  I’ve been picking subjects around the Hauraki Gulf for the most part.

“Evening at Stanley Bay”

“A Rocky Perch” – a split tone image taken from the Tor at Waiake

“The Dinghy” – a high-key pic from Matakatia Bay

“The Pier”- Campbells Bay


“A Touch of Pam” – Long Bay when Cyclone Pam arrived.


“An Atumn Calm”

“Stanley Bay Boat Ramp”

Enjoy [:)]

I’ve got all these pictures uploaded on my photography website also.

  • Thanks- I was quite pleased with that one in the end. It needed two ND grads to get the exposure right. The lights came on the ferry building at the right time.
