    Pano's from New Zealand

    by Doug » Sun Apr 13, 2014 2:15 am

    A few trips back to NZ I took the chance to pack myself off in a van with the camera and and do about 5 days solid of landscape.

    Panoramic shots just seemed to make sense since the Southern Alps where never far from view as a back ground.
    I think I fell into the trap of my eye being drawn to the picture post card scenes, but damn it I had missed seeing the mountains.

    The third one, with the sheep dotted across the grass, is my fave. Don't get me wrong, they are all good in their own way, but that one really does it for my eyes. Pure 100% NZ magic! :wink:
    Feedback and honest, constructive criticism is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Alex.
    These green hills are interesting.
    I'm not fully sure of my facts for this location, but where you are traveling on a flat valley floor and you see a band of small hills it usually means it marks the furthermost traveled point of the head of a glacier.
    The hills will contain piles of scoured up rock that where being pushed in front of the glacier.

    Take a drive down the road with google maps and you can see that there are a bit unusual.

    Just right for Hobbit holes.

    Spectacular Doug, I love them all.

    nice even flat panos that don't Warp look so good with the right scenery and far out does your old stomping ground dish out the scenery!


    awesome stuff for me.
    I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all the kinds of things you can't see from the center.
