I was out last weekend as a storm blew in trying to get some shots of the clouds, I wasn’t entirely successful finding a view point that worked to show the storm but there was some interesting light coming through the clouds – and some good rainbows too!
I have on a few occasions tried to take images of my ‘cello but for a change I thought I would try concentrating on the bow, trying to find as many different ways as possible. My first attempts follow, quite abstract for the most part.
This is another to look at the sunset, taken again above Port Levy but a very simple graphic image with the sunset colours in the sky. Taken with a telephoto lens.
1/5s @ f/9 ISO 200 200 mm
I still have a few shots from the beach on Friday to work through, and I would love to get out and try some more shots of the Milky Way although I don’t think I will get such a warm evening again any time soon. Both of these have had a bit of processing 🙂
A couple more shots of the Totara trees, again quite contrasting styles. I liked the sunset colours in the first image and liked the leading lines and shapes in the second.

I had a request to show yesterday’s image before conversion to monochrome, it seemed like a good idea and I thought I would add another comparison as well just for good measure. The more I look at the images the more I like the monochrome versions, although I do have a bias to monochrome anyway so it may just be me.
Thoughts and opinions are welcome. The monochromes were processed with Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 and were intended to be contrasty if that is a word.
A monochrome from yesterday’s trip. The trees shapes are fabulous with the prevailing wind distorting them into strange shapes. I like converting them to monochrome because it helps to emphasise the shape and texture of the trees, colour feels like a distraction.
