Pukaki & Arotaki

Pukaki_DJI_0039

I’ve been to Lake Pukaki & Mt Cook many times before, but had never driven up the north side of the lake as didn’t realise the road carried on right up to the headwaters feeding Lake Pukaki. So yesterday I left Tekapo & explored right up that side…

MtCook_DSC02370

It was so peaceful & quiet, I just had to do some recording!

Recorded 20 minutes of lake waterlap, and then spent some time throwing big boulders & logs into the lake… Will be a free update to LAKES and WATER FOLEY libraries

This wasn’t one of the rocks I threw into the lake!

Tekapo

I think this might be as close to a selfie as I get!

Note to self: if you are going to set up to shoot a timelapse for three hours DO NOT FEED THE DUCKS!
The beautiful mirror surface at Lake Alexandrina kept getting disrupted by ducks wondering why there isn’t any more free food! Thankfull they went away after 200 photos or so…

Erewhon

Took my Mum for a drive into Erewhon Station today, shot some beautiful footage but the best was last!

SmallLake

Almost drove past this little lake, until I saw the reflection.. then carried on to Lake Clearwater, which could be renamed Lake Icewater at the moment:

Then on to Erewhon Station

On the way back, turned off and went into Lake Heron… and OMG!!! This shot was about the 20th I tried to take, each time knowing there had to be a better shot… kept driving around the lake, looking for a better angle, and then:

LakeHeron

After I shot a ton of photos, I flew my drone and shot a 17 photo 360 panorama as well as some aerial photos & video… and then got my new little GenusTech Jib out & shot some really nice video with my Sony a6300

Off to Tekapo next!

Theres still so much post-quake construction going on in Christchurch, I figured its a good chance to capture some to include in industrial ambiences library I am slowly accumulating….

Ship_DSC02095

Nice sounds here too – I think this ship was refueling (it smelt like it!) which was producing nice complex mechanical drones…..

Field_DJI_0133

This location was like an orchestra of beeping & clanking & the occasional huge boom as a container was released…..

Late afternoon in Lyttleton today…

Contax T2 test roll 1

Went the lab in Merivale first thing morning & got to experience the joy of seeing my prints for the first time! Very happy with them – focus is sharp & exposure is great, I shot a roll of Ektar 100 while in Lyttleton on Tuesday…
