Sunrise lake Wanaka, South Island NZ.  One of those mornings worth getting out of the sack.


Beautiful picture!  :)

Hi dpc.
I prefer the original, I like the foreground rocks, the only bit I was distracted by was the pointy thing far left 1/4 way up the image, kept looking to it to work out what it was.
If it was my image it would still be there too as I don't have the skills or patience to remove just that! :)

Cheers, Graham.

I've decided to remove the rock pile from my previous posting.

Thanks! Yes, I'm conflicted. The 'pointy thing' is a tree trunk recumbent in the water by the shore, the star shaped part being the roots. I really should have removed it even if I wanted to keep the rocks. I have no explanation as to why I failed to do so. Perhaps a case of tunnel vision. One becomes so focused on one or two elements that one forgets the rest. I need to become more sensitive in this respect. I guess I'll head for my photo files and get to work on this picture once again.

Banff Mountains in June
I know next to nothing about glaciers but I am thinking the first photo has one in it

Yep, that's a glacier, if a small one. Every once in a while it will avalanche something off the cliff. The Canadian Rockies have a unique form and beauty of their own.   Glad to see your images!

This is one of my favourite threads.  There are some awesome pictures here.  (sigh)
I shoot with a Camera Obscura with an optical device attached that refracts and transmits light

Just a couple from Heybridge Basin on Monday. Got there just as the tide peaked. Lack of wind meant the water was smooth as silk for about 30-45 minutes.

Anyone have any tips for reducing/removing the haze/pollution on the horizon in lightroom? Upping the exposure and letting Auto edit has improved it somewhat. But it still isn't how I would like it.
