A tale of woe to this post... Nestled amongst mature Oaks on the side of State Highway 2 at Pukehou, the Christ Church is the oldest church in the Hawke’s Bay province. It is listed as a Category One Historic Place. Built in 1859 by Rev. Samuel Williams, this beautiful Gothic Revival style building is distinctive for its steep pitched roof and slender pointed arch lancet windows. The Rev. Williams was notable as a missionary and founder of the nearby Te Aute College.
This is a single image photo... one of only 3 I managed to save before a laptop crash yesterday morning corrupted my 32GB SD card. I subsequently lost several hundred as yet unprocessed RAW photos. Three nights and around 15hrs of shooting astro from several remote and very special locations... all lost forever. I can’t even begin to describe how upset I am about this 😱

The sun had set, leaving only a faint trace of afterburner colour on the horizon. Like so many of the recent twilights, haunted by a grey malaise. I realised that although i couldn’t see much of the residual colour, it was there within the clouds. An extra long exposure of 5 minutes using the @leefilters Big Stopper and 0.9 Soft GND combo of filters would extract that glow and enhance the overall mood of this scene.
I was pleased with the result 🙏🏼🌅

The sun hadn’t quite breached the horizon. It was cold and breezy, and I wanted to extract as much colour from the pre-dawn sky. I’d been planning to shoot this new Surf Life Saving Club building for some time. I just love how the tiled cladding picks up and blends in the colours of its surroundings in beautiful Lyall Bay.
This 4 minute exposure using the Lee Filters Little Stopper and Soft Grad ND combo allowed sufficient time for the moving clouds to streak & blur. Engorged with the colours of the rising sun, those clouds provided the contrast I was looking for between the ocean, the architecture and the sky 💨🌤️

The sea was flat and the setting sun struggled to populate the clouds with more than a tint. I decided to go for an extra long exposure of almost 7 minutes using the @leefilters Big Stopper and 0.9 Soft GND combo of filters. I figured the extra time would allow for a stronger build up of colour in the clouds and make the sea like velvet. I was not wrong 😍

This is one of 4 shots I took to create a stitched panorama of the Milky Way. In the foreground, my favourite rock at Hongoeka Bay. Given that I crop everything for Instagram anyway, I decided to edit this one individually. Jupiter can be seen setting over Mana Island. A combination of light pollution and presence of airglow provided a band of colour above the horizon. With me on this occasion, Mr Astro himself... @frankhopfler Check out his page for uncompromising stitched astro panoramas!

Another rather special shot I captured this time last year with @rakairoahori at Peka Peka. The moon had not long set beyond Kapiti Island. It left a glowing orange band on the horizon. The intense glow at left is from the lights of Paraparaumu beyond the sand dunes. This was despite the time being 04:20am when I shot this. With the Milky Way looking spectacular overhead, the reflective quality of the estuary and wet sand provided a perfect foreground to frame the image I wanted. Obligatory pieces of driftwood added interest. ==========================

Day 1: 3.5hrs drive from Christchurch to Lake Tekapo.

The milky way is honestly simply breath-taking!! And I’m really happy I managed to do justice to the amazing sights I saw on that night and can relive it ☺️ Also, I just received the letter for the speeding fine I got on the drive from Christchurch.. and boy is the fine hefty 😕😕

Here’s a rather special shot I took this time last year at Peka Peka. The moon had just set beyond Kapiti Island, leaving a band of orange in its wake. It was a clear night with a myriad of stars and the Milky Way looking spectacular.
Massive thanks to @rakairoahori for showing me this location. I shot a huge number of photos that night and still have so many yet to process. When I shoot different locations regularly, I only process a few at a time, leaving plenty for future times. I do this also because I figure my processing skills will be a whole lot better months from now... simply through experience and new learning. Continuous improvement is very important to me 😇📸

Pastel twilight tones painted with my camera. For this piece, I panned about 130 degrees left to right then back to left over 8 seconds of long exposure. I kept the camera moving at consistent speed throughout the pans. This was handheld and differed from all my other pans in that it was done at twice the speed and panned in two directions. The resulting image was tonal rather than textural... And I kinda like that too. What do you think?? 🎨

It’s ok... I’m ok... Boys will be boys!
If you see the big rock astro shot on the row below this post... this is the same rock captured an hour later. It’s a lot bigger than it looks from a distance with a wide angle lens! You can see the Milky Way is now lower in the sky... Oh and that’s me clinging on for what seemed like an eternity and pointing my headlight in its general direction.
I’d wanted a remote triggered selfie while sitting on top. Alas this was as far as I got, and the prospect of a 6m fall to rocks below was not on my wish list at 3:00am in such a remote location.
Big thanks to @frankhopfler for triggering the shot while I clung by my fingertips for the 13 seconds long exposure. Have you ever tried rock climbing in gumboots? Don’t! 😂⚠️

If you look outside now and see this in the sky....
(A) Brace yourself... We’re in for a hell of a ride!!
(B) I want what you’re On!!
(C) We’re All in serious trouble!!
Shot with @frankhopfler at crazy-o’clock last week. It’s a single shot long exposure inverse zoom of the Milky Way Core.... translated to mean... It took a few attempts to get my zooming speed and consistency right. Any pauses or changes in speed resulted in patchy uneven streaks.
My technique for this involved zooming for only half the duration of the exposure. This allowed the primary image of the Core to retain its original shape without total distortion, hence also the reason for zooming out rather than in.
Stay safe people! Warping is frowned upon in some parts of the world 😉💥

Another view of the old water vat sitting by the main highway at Paekakariki.
Wouldn’t it be cool if it actually was full of Tuatara Pilsner?!! The view is looking north with the main trunk railway line on the left and SHW1 on the right. The signal light was shining green... hence I shot this from beside rather than ON the tracks. It was 10:30pm and trains were still running. Mars was doing a nice solo act out to the right and Saturn was sparkling in the centre of the MW Core.
This was 7 individual landscape photos shot and stitched as a vertical panorama. With me on this astro adventure was @mikebouchier_nightshift & @frankhopfler Check out their pages for more astro goodness ✨🌟💫

The planets are aligned through July night skies over New Zealand! We’re currently enjoying some of the best inter-planetary views in over 20 years.
Captured at 02:05am on Wednesday morning with @frankhopfler as we walked around to Hongoeka Bay from Plimmerton. This is 3 sequentially shot images all with identical settings and stacked as one for clarity.
In view, the Galactic Core of the Milky Way spanning across the Western horizon. Jupiter is shining brightly just above Mana Island. This photo is rather special in that it also has Saturn in frame.
Can you see the Galactic Kiwi within the Core? Saturn is the bright planet located just above the centre of the Kiwi’s back. Mars was also clearly visible this night, but out to the right and above this frame.
Huge thanks to our astro guru friend @markgeenz for his assistance with identifying and locating these planets. For the best of astro photography, check out his page @theartofnight ==========================

It was 05:13am. @frankhopfler and I had been out shooting astro most of the night. A veil of cloud was steadily rolling in and had been obscuring all but the brightest stars. I’d parked my truck on the far side of the estuary. This is us standing in the middle debating whether to head back to Wellington. Kapiti Island is in the background. Venus (I think?) resplendent at top right. I triggered this shot remotely from about 15 mtrs. It ended up being the final shot of the night. I liked the reflective quality of the water and wet sand combined with the light polluted clouds. Our own torch lights helped to illuminate the focal point of the photo... the debate about calling it a night!

Early morning astro adventures with @mikebouchier_nightshift and @frankhopfler at Paekakariki’s historic rail yard.
Relocated from its original site in the early 1970’s, this old water vat is a rare remaining example of what was once a common feature of New Zealand railways.
During the late 19th and early 20th century, water vats were strategically placed along NZ’s railway lines. They supplied the vast amounts of water required to power the steam trains of the era. This particular vat originally came from Ohakune Station where it was first built in 1901. Sadly, it’s now in a poor state of repair. A shame given its significance as a rare relic of a system once common to our rail network.
This frame was captured facing south toward the historic station and yard.
Some of the above historical information was obtained and quoted from:

It wasn’t tropical at 1 degrees and that’s not a coconut on the beach! 😂... but there was a somewhat warming glow in the pre-dawn sky over Wainuiomata Beach. The Galactic Core of our Milky Way looked extra large as it approached the horizon. With me also at this crazy hour @frankhopfler and @rach_wlg

Twilight Tones and my current favourite... TEXTURE!!
An 8 second long exposure hand-held pan using my 70-200mm lens with Lee ND Filters. I figured the deliberate motion blur would be forgiving of my less than dead straight horizon. It took a few shots to get this the way I wanted it... without ghosted silhouettes of the rock outcrops in front of me. The trick was to reduce the exposure time sufficiently to enable a faster, more fluid and uninterrupted pan. That way, I only ended up with colours and texture... but no detail. Have you ever tried painting with your camera?? 👨‍🎨🎨

Shared from @ricardodetreend - Wind driven salt spray always makes for interesting effects at twilight. I like how the sunlight piercing the cloud cover highlights the churn of an angry sea. The wrath and tone of the tide is somewhat moderated by this 8 second exposure, smoothing out the assault but leaving enough energy to remind you... all was not calm! 🖤

Tell me this doesn’t look like a lake with distant rolling hills and trees visible along the tops. 🤔
It’s actually a puddle... about 2-3 metres across and only about 5cm deep. The island in the middle is just big enough for my boots and is within a mere step away.
The rolling hills are actually a small moss covered bank with tufts of tussock and scrubby plants dotted around. This was a low POV shot with tripod splayed wide and camera close to the ground.
The Milky Way Core seemed dazzlingly close as it lay low in the sky on the western horizon.
It’s funny how one’s perception of scale can get so distorted without the usual reference points to denote size or distance. Were your eyes tricked? 👀 ==========================

I shot this a few days ago on the southern coast. The sea was quite rough and the sun was setting behind me to the west. Interestingly, the best colour was found looking East. Sunset shooting Lesson # 17... always check behind you. Because just sometimes there is more spectacular stuff happening where you least expect it. But Lesson # 18... Never turn your back on the sea! 🌊

A little more cosmic goodness captured last weekend while shooting astro with @rach_wlg and @frankhopfler
I painted light into the foreground of this image using my @kathmandu LED tent light on its lowest power setting (for about 15 of the 30 seconds exposure). I’m not sure if this old tree trunk once grew here or if it had been deposited right way up by the tide at some point. I’ll assume the latter due to the absence of anything growing, live, dead or otherwise anywhere near. It was handy being able to use my @photopills phone app to know exactly when and where the Milky Way Core would be positioned that night. Shots like this are generally not by stroke of luck, but are pre-planned using the app for GPS positioning, accuracy and timing. Also knowing when, where and what % of illumination the moon is helps. The app also tells me when the specific astronomical, nautical and civic twilight periods are. It can be used to plan and geolocate shoots months in advance (not that I’m that proficient with it yet!) ✨

Sometimes a little low cloud and some light pollution tinged with airglow are a good thing when shooting astro.
I painted light into the foreground of this image using my @kathmandu LED tent light on its lowest power setting (for about 8 of the 30 seconds exposure). The orange tones of the light pollution beyond the driftwood provided a colourful alternative background. Meanwhile above the clouds and still in the clear part of the sky, the Milky Way’s Galactic Core needs little explanation. Always a treat to see ✨

Who needs a Core when a Tail and a Small Magellanic Cloud will do?!! I shot this from the Baring Head walkway bridge at the East Harbour Regional Park. The view is over the Wainuiomata River winding its way to the Coast about a km away. With me on this adventure in 0 degrees and at stupid o’clock... @rach_wlg and @frankhopfler

Crazy cosmic goodness on Wainuiomata Coast recently. One of my last photos captured that morning at 6:04am. Low cloud had started to roll in and the core of the Milky Way was only just visible. Early morning flights and shipping were all contributing their lights into the mix. At the brink of nautical twilight, the whitewater and surf were highlighted in the low ambient light. It was a delight after hours of darkness to acclimatise my eyes to this symphony of light. Sunrise was still not due for at least an hour or two. ==========================

This Cosmic selfie was remote triggered on Wainuiomata Beach yesterday morning. It was 5:26am and the air temperature had climbed to 2 degrees by this time. @frankhopfler and @rach_wlg and I had started at 3:30am at 0 degrees. We were excited by the prospect of clear sky and astro shooting opportunities. ==========================

Most moonless nights this season have been lost to heavy cloud cover or rain. So here’s a Moonless sky over Hongoeka Bay captured last July. Milky Way core setting beyond Mana Island... a strong presence of Airglow, and some reflective goodness in the lagoon I was standing in. A previously unopened frame I’ve left until now to open.

An angry afternoon twilight in Houghton Bay. The sea was churning and the coast lashed with big swells. I was pushing my luck as usual out on the rocks. In the 4 seconds it took to shoot this exposure, I had just enough time to lift everything over my head as the approaching wall of water engulfed me. My happy place 💦

Milky Way core rising sharply over the Rimutaka Forest Park. I shot this in May last year from the Baring Head coastal walkway bridge over the Wainuiomata River.

More Cosmic fun at Castlepoint. It seems hard to credit that our Milky Way galaxy of which we are a part... is 100,000 Light years across. In other words, if you traveled at the speed of light (186,000 miles per second), it would still take you 100,000 years to get from one side to the other. Our solar system sits within about 26,000 light years from the galactic core of our galaxy. The view here is of the far side of our galaxy.... some 74,000 light years away. The other two small galaxies also in view are the Magellanic Clouds. The larger is 163,000 light years away and comprises about 30 billion stars, 14,000 light years across. The smaller one is 199,000 light years away and compromises 3 billion stars, 7,000 light years across.
Doesn’t that make you wonder how clever were the peeps who figured that out??!! 👨‍💻✨ ==========================

Alien Egg Farm.
This is a new crop and re-edit of a photo I shot on Mana Island last August. Originally a full landscape image with beach, hillside and sea...even Kapiti Island in the background. I immediately saw the potential of this crop when I first edited the original photo. Now almost a year later, I revisited it from scratch. It’s a different crop and an edit that gives emphasis to the lapping tide washing over these stones. The late afternoon light picked up by their glistening wet surfaces. Isn’t Nature so infinitely beautiful?! Within what we see as a spectacular scene are scores of microcosms like this... each in their own right deserved of admiration and marvel.
It’s all about the little things... Small wonders 💙💦

Does Sunrise get any better than this?! It’s always gratifying when you sacrifice sleep and a warm bed to be rewarded with such a colourful break of day. Captured at Red Rocks nature reserve in March on Wellington’s wild south coast. =========================

As much as I love colour...Just sometimes... there’s a pic that jumps out at me and boldly says Black & White! This rusty pipeline with tidal flow breaching its concrete junction caught my eye. The late afternoon sun was reflecting and creating flare off the water as it rushed over the pipe. The whole area would soon be under water while I remained capturing the changes.
What do you like about black & white photography...and what’s your favourite style?? I like it for people; street; architecture... and now quite possibly... long exposure 🖤

This single shot of Castlepoint Lighthouse was quite a challenge due to three very different light sources.
The first and obvious was the rotating beams emitting from the lighthouse... visible from 48km at sea (and daylight mimicking up close)!
The 2nd light source was the moon at bottom right, some 384,400 km away. Its light took a mere 1.25 light seconds to arrive, and bright enough to spoil most long exposures.
The 3rd and my target light source was the Galactic Core of the Milky Way rising sharply behind the lighthouse. Its distance some 24-27,000 Light years away. Compare that to the 1.25 light seconds to see the moon. Now we’re talking Big distance and Big variables!!
So anyway, the challenge was to balance out those distances and intensities of light and still capture an image of the MW at the same time. A shot that normally takes 25 to 30 seconds to achieve. This one was done in just 5 seconds and using a super high ISO 8000 where I’d normally only use 3200. Pretty cool huh?!

The delicious colours of last Monday evening’s sunset over Tarakena Bay. This fusion was created over 10 seconds of exposure during a 150 degree horizontal pan. The image is 1/3 cropped from a full landscape. I liked this portion for the rocks and waves in addition to the sky. Their earthy tones melding into the watery foreground as if painted by hand, suffused with the glow of fire overhead. It was like painting with my camera. =========================

How beautiful is our Southern night sky??!! It was a cold clear night toward the end of July as @rakairoahori and I made our way around the southwest coast. The sky was incredibly bright from the light of a myriad stars over Hongoeka Bay. Colourful bands of pink and apricot tones lay just above the horizon. This optical phenomenon was airglow. It’s caused by various processes in the upper atmosphere, like the recombination of atoms, photoionized by the sun during the day. Other causes include luminescence from cosmic rays striking the upper atmosphere etc. It was 02:38am and the Milky Way Core was already quite low in the sky. Our astro adventure was off to a great start! The foreground boulder was a timely bonus. You can even see Mana Island on the horizon just beyond the rock. ==========================

The kiss of tidal flow in Tarakena Bay recently. As with the colourfully toned clouds overhead ... all but the rocks were in motion, suspended in time and merged as one. Nature now whispered a new story. ===========================

To think... We are a part of This. Awesome or what?!!

Seems like ages since I shot a spectacular sunset! Monday was my birthday and so I went out to one of my favourite spots on the south coast, just to bask in nature and do what I love most...capture images. The sunset ended up being one of those ones that just brings people out from the shadows. All around Wellington... people stopped and stared, enthralled by this fiery marbled sky. A population transfixed by nature in all its glory. I was alone on the coast, but judging from the number of local sunset posts, you could see people throughout the city...arms outreached to the sky with phones and cameras...furiously firing off selfies and more.
Sadly I was walking between bays when the sky went ballistic... so not my ideal composition... but happy to have been there in the moment. It was a Happy Birthday to me 🎉🌅

@ricardodetreend - It was 3 degrees and 05:30am at Wainuiomata Beach. A faint glow coloured the horizon adding perceptual warmth to the chilly Winter morning. A solid veil of low cloud shrouded the southern coastline of Wellington. At least the sky remained clear for this unimpeded view of the Milky Way’s Galactic Core. At right, the oscillating beacon of Baring Head lighthouse shines for 9 seconds at a time at 6 second intervals. It can been seen from 18km away. It was surprising for such a dark night, just how much light and colour was present as captured over the long exposure. ==========================

💦 It’s All about Flow 💦
I had stood patiently in the middle of this rock pool for about an hour. The sun was setting, but the incoming tide was still quite low with minimal swell. I knew that the first wave to break the outer wall of rock, would flood over this terrace and cascade into the pool where I was standing. In the fading light, I also knew I needed to keep my shutter speed at just slow enough to blur the water, yet fast enough to retain some of its motion. My hour was well spent as it afforded me the time to simply enjoy being where I was. It also gave me plenty of time to experiment and adjust my settings so that when my moment arrived... I was ready.
Something also worthy of mention... I check my batteries in triggers and remote sensors, torches etc before starting. Nothing worse than waiting all that time only to have a gear malfunction at the end. Except perhaps making your way back to shore in the dark with no torch lol. =========================

Standing in a deep rock pool furthest from shore in the dead of night. Overhead the celestial siblings, Magellanic Cloud galaxies were clearly visible to the naked eye. Not even the southern airglow or distant light pollution over South Island could fade their brilliance this night. Once again... just me...the rocks...the sea.... and the vast night sky ✨

Out where I love to be....On the rocks and in the sea. The light was fading faster than the clouds were moving or the sea lapping. I watched through the afterburners of sunset until darkness before making my way back to shore. Where do you find your Zen place? ===========================

Who’s watching who??
The Pouwhenua at Oruaiti Reserve keeps a watch over Wellington harbour entrance. On this occasion it was 02:35am ANZAC Day. The sky was clear and overhead, a celestial party of Milky Way and Magellanic Cloud galaxies. They flanked above and either side of this iconic carving, watching over our entire coastline. I felt privileged to see this and to be able to compose a shot that included all 4 of these timeless watchers. ==========================

Now you see it... Now you don’t!
I had balanced my way out to the centre of the lagoon atop a rusty pipeline. The surrounding rock outcrops served as a breakwater to the 3m swell on the other side. It was around about now, having committed myself further and further into the lagoon that the tide started bursting through and over the top. Whilst I was still balanced on it, the pipe was engulfed in tide flowing and coming from all directions. Don’t you love it when all the elements come together and you’re still in the middle of it all?! 😂💦=========================

Who would you walk with among the flaxes to enjoy the afterburners of sunset?
Tarakena Bay actually has multiple little bays. On this occasion, I’d already been out in the water a couple of hours and had captured the sunset. It was quite dark between the rows of native Flax as I made my way back to the car. The silhouettes of the tall flowering Harakeke spires drew me to yet more shots of a colourful sky, reluctant to give way to night. =============================

01:32am one April morning. No finer place to be (well maybe a warm bed lol) than in the middle of a rock pool gazing up at the Milky Way core. Bright lights to the left are from the suburb of neighbouring Island Bay. On the far right, the beacon of Pencarrow Lighthouse marks the entrance to Wellington harbour. In the middle... that was the Police spotlights heading my way. My headlight shining out in the water where I was wading attracted their attention as I was in a marine reserve. Sadly poachers go to great lengths to obtain illegal shellfish. Eventually after the officers drove onto the beach and lit the whole area up, I had to return to shore to prove what I was doing there before I could continue shooting. I didn’t mind as they were just being vigilant. ==========================
