On the day, the wind and rain played the game long enough for me to attempt to capture this image.
Yet another spectacularly beautiful kiwi vista. Definitely worth the effort, I thought.
Waiting out New Zealand’s four seasons in one day weather patterns for a result like this can be very gratifying.
The strong symmetry of John Kelly’s picture dominates one’s first impression, and as you let the details of the scene sink in, so to speak, there are some delightful little pictures within the picture.
I like the light on upper foliage of the forested shore left, for instance. And I wonder too what might be possible by moving to the right (or left) some distance to try and force perspective more dramatically. But then again, the weather would probably have changed before you found a new angle.
