Palmerston Fields Of Yellow

With Silent Delight

These fields of rapeseed often become a local attraction wen the plants flower and huge fields turn into a sea of yellow. When you see it on a nice summer day with green surrounds it really does become a wonder of colour.
This composition took longer to find than I thought it would. The tricky balance was getting the right amount of yellow and green at the front, while not leaving the rest of the image to tight. The clouds also brought another dimension to the image.

Poolburn

A Silent Invisible Traveller Did Come By

Getting to Poolburn is an adventurous drive up the Old Dunstan Road that twists and turns through part of the Ida Valley. Once you get there, it’s like an Oasis or a well-kept secret with the old huts scattered around a marvellous lake.

Into The Mystic Show

In This Room The Light Flickers After A While.

I try and seperate what I’m posting on different social media streams so people don’t end up seeing the same thing too many times. Over on instagram I post from my Peak Directions gallery which is based on my shots from the beach and ocean. Here’s a selection of recent posts to show you what you’ve been missing if you haven’t found me yet. If you want to find me on instagram: @johncaswellnz

Paraparaumu Beach Awesomeness

The Earth and The Sky Shout For Joy.

Paraparaumu Beach on the Kapiti Coast is an awesome place to get some wicked sunsets. The fact that Kapiti Island is directly off shore means that there is a different element to play with in the composition if nothing is very interesting on the beach. However, don’t you love these tyre tracks!

If photography isn’t your thing, it’s also a great walking beach and goes on for miles meaning you can have an evening stroll while watching the sunset and the sand between your toes.

First Of All We Have Colour

I came across this lady who does the most colourful designs with vinyl records. I watched and chatted to her for about 10 minutes as she created new designs. The cool thing was she was doing them right there on the spot so you could see it evolve right before your eyes. How neat is that!

Shag Point Sunrise

To Seek Such A Time

This a one of many wonderful East Otago sunrises I’ve caught over the years however I don’t always get to this location in the morning. It’s called Shag Point and it’s home to a large Fur Seal colony and also penguins if you’re lucky enough to spot them. Once you finish at Shag Point you can then call into the Moeraki Boulders which is just up the road.

Osteria Epoca In Brisbane

Out On the Ledge

Yesterday I posted a photo taken from the Ledge Bungy in Queenstown. If you want a bit more encouragement to join the craziness, here’s their promo video. It’s hard to not want to have a go after watching this.


The Other Sign Outside Was

Osteria Epoca can be found on Orontes Road, Yeronga in Brisbane. They are an amazing  Cafe, Bar & Restaurant that does serious good Italian food. When I was there they let me set my camera up to take a few shots, the one I like best is this one of the front window. It’s definitely worth visit if your in Brisbane or the area . Oh, and the Porchetta, Crab linguni or Gamberi come highly recommended.

Skyline Bungy Queenstown

Who Saw Thee Fly?

Bungy jumping is so much fun, I’ve done it twice. Once in Skippers Canyon and once off the Kawarau Bridge. When I jumped off the Kawarau bridge I went backwards which involved leaning back and being suspended there until they they let you go. It was actually rather comfortable until they said “bye” and let me go.  I knew it was coming yet it was still a surprise! This photo was taken from the Skyline Bungy or Ledge Bungy located in Queenstown at the top of the Gondola at Bob’s Peak. Queenstown, the perfect place to fling yourself off perfectly good platforms. It sounds slightly crazy, but then AJ Hackett does crazy very well.

The Coolest Floor In Melbourne

When Colour And Happiness Around Lay

Isn’t this floor just outstanding! I find it hard to believe there would be a better floor anywhere in Melbourne. This is in the Victorian National Gallery in Melbourne. I was originally aiming to photograph the stain-glass ceiling they have there , but an event was on (held by Christian Dior I think) so I searched out the best possible vantage point to capture the floor instead. I ended up on the second floor, because the view from the second floor gave me the interplay between the brick walls and the coloured floor that I wanted.
