So my on going project last year was to photograph 100 sunrises, and I happy say I completed the challenge.

There were a lot of early starts (well 100 actually) and struggles to find new locations but looking back it was the best decision, I had a lot of fun doing this project, I shot a few nice images, and I ticked off a lot of locations that have been on my radar for a long time.

Please check out all the images over at 100sunrises.com

Time for some sleep ins and maybe a few sunset shoots

Cheers,

Ben

Hanging Rock in the Mist

13/2/2014  –  Hanging Rock, Blue Mountains

 

Spent the morning watching the clouds and mists rolling up the valley from hanging rock.

Such a fantastic way to spend a few hours, the 11km round trip hike was not really that bad either 🙂

Tree Root Detail

From a hike in the Blue Mountains, a little Tree root detail in the Valley of the Waters.

I have been taking a lot of B&W images lately, well colour images with the express intent of converting to B&W later, sometimes you just know that B&W is going to show up the details and themes in an image better than colour can. The textures and twisted patterns of these tree roots get lost in the greens and browns of the colour image, but come through clearer in the B&W.

Recently I had a chance to go through my images from April’s NZ trip and found this one, I have had this image in the back of my head for awhile now and havent been able to get to it, so glad i found a few hours to go through the back log of images that i have taken so far this year.

When i shot this image I shot it with B&W conversion in mind, couldn’t even consider it in colour and I think it works perfectly, the B&W shows up the contrasts of the early morning light spilling over the mountains out of the frame to camera left and striking this hill side showing up all the texture of these amazing NZ mountains.
