A Blackhead Afternoon

Blackhead Beach and Strange Skies. 

Today’s escapism is spread across Blackhead Beach and St Clair. I spent a couple of hours tripping around a few spots between Blackhead Beach and St Clair to see what I could find on Saturday afternoon. The result was a few surfing photos which I’ll post over the next few days.

How strange were the skies over Dunedin and Otago on Saturday? Smoke from a massive scrub and tussock fire near Middlemarch in Central Otago spread over the city leaving a strange reddish brown hazy over in the sky.

The Moeraki Boulders

The Stunning Moeraki Boulders 

I’ve had this photo of a single boulder found at the Moeraki Boulders tucked away for some time. The Moeraki Boulders is one of those spots where so many people stop, and so many people take photos that I decided that if I was going to add another boulder photo to the world, I wanted it to mean something.

Until recently, I kept looking past this photo but I’ve found that the more I have a long stare at this image, the more it has grown on me. When I took the image, I new I liked what I saw and I new it held a very strong human characteristic but I wasn’t sure what. It’s taken me along time to finally pin down just what that human presence is. Now that I finally know, I can share the image with you and give it life. I’m sure that if you have a long stare it this image taken from the Moeraki Boulders you’ll find something very personal too.

So this is me at the moment: I’m really enjoying exploring images that represent a place and time and hint at a human presence at the moment. Personally, I think that by capturing representations of human life that show the passing of time, it gives me a stronger inner connection to my own memories but it also allows me to connect and make sense of the world around me.

Moody Sunday

What moody day it turned into yesterday once the clouds started to roll in from the south. By the time I was wandering around St Clair in late afternoon, the temperature had significantly dropped and a fair wind was picking up.

Store Shed At Day Break

Glenorchy

These are the latest three additions to my fine art collection that I’ve just updated. They’re all images that took a long time to come together. I find that images like these and the feeling and meaning that’s held within them never happen quickly. They tend to take a long time to evolve, sometimes with the location being visited numerous times before the image appears as I want it too.

So this is me at the moment: I’m really enjoying exploring images that represent a place and time and hint at a human presence at the moment. Personally, I think that by capturing representations of human life that show the passing of time, it gives me a stronger inner connection to my own memories but it also allows me to connect and make sense of the world around me.

Abandoned House

Hooper’s Inlet

It’s a shame that this place no longer stands. It collapsed several years ago after a storm blew through and over the peninsula. At the time it was standing it was in the middle of a sheep paddock that had obviously been used by the local animal population for some time. Despite this, it still had this wonderfully personal family feeling about.

The Eastern Peaks

Glenorchy

In the chill of the still morning air, just as the sun comes up there’s a moment when even the most rugged of features can take on a majestic feeling. It’s in that half light when objects can seem real yet unreal at the same time and your mind can spend the rest of the day trying to workout if that moment really happened.
