With such a s@%##y summer we had to act quickly. So before the golden hour arrived we were ready to shoot and as you can see the light was constantly changing, giving us opportunities one after another.
The last shots were down to 1/10 of a second.
The photos were shot at Ngatitoa Domain in Mana and lucky for us the tide was out.

Nice shots and I see that the fisherman must have left a few wheelie marks in the sand when he was dropping off his fishing gear...... :D
See ya

Great shots Brian. Quite a different approach to photography and editing. :D

And Simon, there was a fisherman there who felt he had to show off his bright yellow 'EVO IV' Lancer turbo thing by doing a lame FWD donut before he left then driving up and down the road above the beach making silly turbo noises.... :roll:

Went up to Waitarere today and took the Gt.Since my last post I have swopped the wheels and the seats over. I have realigned the headlight lids and fitted some foggies

That's looking really good now. Good job with realigning the headlight lids and putting the fog lights back on. Looks way better now even though it was one of the nicest SW20s I've seen before you did anything to improve it. :D

last weekend, i decided to go for a small drive over the hill. Ideal driving conditions and very little traffic. You cant beat that hill!
I took the road along the western side of the Lake. A drive we have done many a time to Lake Ferry. This time i stopped several times to take in the scenery.

Thanks. All of the recent photos I have been using my old Pentax k10 and sigma 17 to 70 f2.8 to 4. I also use a little Fuji Ft3 as well.
I then use "Lightroom " on my computer .

Easy, Brian.

Copy.
Paste.
Link will liven itself up.

In fact on a Mac if you really want to, you can just drag the link from the web browser's address bar and drop it into the text editing area where you are writing your post.

The URL button above the edit box is only if you want to have some other text livened up as a link (like making the word "Foo" link to Google).

I had an Asahi Pentax K1000 once. It was an AWesome camera, loved it. Made the tragic mistake of taking it to sea. :cry:

Keep them pics coming Brian, you've got skills. :mrgreen:
