Autumn leaves

It's cold outside; even the aphids enjoyed the ride indoors.

First snow

The first snow of the year fell on Mt Oxford on Sunday night - grabbed through the bedroom window, mid morning, Monday.

Waimakariri River Gorge

 

Nikon D80, ISO 100, f11, AutoPano Pro, Photomatix Pro

The lighting was just beautiful at this time of day but an hour earlier may have been better. Perhaps another day.

Storm in the catchment

 

Nikon D80, ISO 400, f16, 1/500 sec, -1EV, 52mm efl, Capture NX2

When the rain falls in the mountains, the gently winding river turns into a torrent.

Rage in the gorge

 

Nikon D80, ISO 100, f11, 1/60 sec, 42mm efl, Autopano Pro 2, Photomatix Pro 3, Capture NX2

What a difference a day makes ... this was taken less than 24 hours after "Waimakariri River Gorge" (below, 16 May) and was a result of "Storm in the catchment" (below, 17 May). Standing on the bank while metre high waves thunder past was an awesome experience that helps one appreciate the power of water in motion.
