The Bend at Tahunanui Beach

I took this photo during a walk around Tahunanui Beach here in Nelson, New Zealand. I couldn’t fit the nice little tidal bend into one shot so ended up stitching 5 photos together to make a panorama, something that I’ve been doing more of lately using Photoshop. I export the individual shots through Lightroom and hey presto we’ve got a panorama! My computer churns through the process quite slowly and I might have to do a little adjusting when the algorithm doesn’t get it quite right but all things considered it’s surprisingly easy!

A Pohutukawa Tree on Christmas Day

Happy holidays everyone! I went for a walk on Christmas day near the beach in Nelson, New Zealand and found this Pohutukawa. We also call it the New Zealand Christmas tree over here because of the beautiful crimson flowers you see at this time of year.

Melbourne from High Above

I love coming up here to the viewing deck at the Eureka Tower in Melbourne every now and then. If I’m not busy and it looks like it might be a nice sunset I’ll head on up and take photos for an hour or so, just casually strolling about looking for interesting shots. The sun sets at different locations on the horizon over the year (kinda obvious but still something to think about) so it’s always a little different. Right now in summer it drops into the ocean at the end of the Yarra River and I like the way your eyes follow the river past Southbank all the way out to Port Melbourne as the sun says goodbye for another day.
