Action Sports: Georgia

The last shoot we did was with Georgia - who we have photographed before, and have always got awesome shots with! 

It was another fun shoot and I love the images we got!

It has been such an awesome time photographing all these wonderful and awesome ladies! 

If you haven't yet grab a copy of the latest NZMTBR Magazine and give the article a read - I'm quite proud of it :) 

Landscape: Frosty Morning.

We have had two really super frosty mornings this month, one after the other. 

The nights are cold and the mornings are colder. 

I like the contrast in colour tones between the frost in the shade, and the frost melting in the sun. 

This will be the last month of Winter for Nick and I as we are off to Vietnam for the month of August! 

I am looking forward to the warm! 


Adventures: Arthurs Pass.

Nick has always gone on about how he would love to do a hiking/adventure type shoot at a river near Arthurs Pass. 

I had no idea what river he was talking about. 

I put all my trust in him and said "ok lets do it!"

We roped in Will, got in the car and as her were pulling into the carpark Nick says: "I think this is it?" 

And we just went with it. 

We were just inside Arthurs Pass National Park. 

There were beautiful trees, a glorious river, epic mountains and lots of tourists taking pictures (it must be a beautiful spot then right!) ;) 

It turns out it was just perfect and we got some awesome images!

Adventures - Castle Hill

It was windy and warm when we left Christchurch. 

There was a bike race happening just down from us and all you could hear were helicopters and a voice over a loud speaker.

It was nice to get away from that into the quiet.

The drive to Castle Hill was an interesting one - the wind was really going for it!

When we got there the temperature had plummeted - jacket weather.

It was so much fun!

Nick was jumping from rock to rock, running around everywhere while I kept my feet firmly on lower ground - it was still incredibly windy and I was finding it hard to keep from blowing over.

The rain came in, but it was nice and refreshing.

We sat in a dug out in a rock and ate our lunch in relative shelter. 

And then home before the rain got really bad. 

We stopped at a few places on the way home too - some pretty fields, a lake and a run down old shed. 

Enjoy!

Adventures - Mt. Cook, New Zealand

Hello all, It has been a while - but I think we are back. 

We have decided to end "Adventure Sunday" and not limit ourselves to just Sunday. 

Last Saturday we went to Mt. Cook.  

We were joined by Nick's cousin - who was visiting from Japan - and a Japanese student who was staying with his family.  

It was an early start, complete with a MacDonald's breakfast. 

It was fine all the way to Tekapo - where we stopped to show Yoko the church and the beautiful blue-green lake. 

Then it was another hour-ish to The Hermitage hotel, which doesn't look that flash until you are right there.  

Lunch outside on the balcony with a view of the snow capped mountains, before starting the trek to the lake at the base of Mt Cook.  

The walk was chilly to start with - but the sun eventually bet the cool air and it felt almost summery.  

A few stops on the way to the mountain to entice our inner children and play with huge sheets of ice.  

And then we were there.  

I had never seen Mt Cook up this close, and Nick hadn't been here since he was about eight.  

We were in awe of the mountains. 

The water was almost frozen, and there were ice bergs that had broken off the glacier at the bottom of Mt Cook floating around.  

We watched the sun sink below the snow and then decided it was time to move on.  

A Japanese restaurant for dinner - that was amazing and then off to see the stars outside the town lights. 

I didn't think they were going to be as amazing as they were.  

We had to take photos.  

Even though we didn't have a tripod and it was cooling off quite fast.  

I thought that star photos weren't that bad considering the camera was resting on the lens cap and a bunched up chocolate packet.  

The photos don't do the mountain air justice -  it was so fresh. 

It was nice to get out of the city for a bit.
