Lucky Fog

FogWaves_DJI_0116

In contrast to yesterday I went out to the coast near Ashburton only to meet fog near the coast – it was quite beautiful!

Came back a different route purely by accident & came across these guys:

WellDrillDSC02531

They were drilling & sinking a new bore/well and were 80m down when I turned up… The drill was making all sorts of great sounds – heavy percussive pounding…. so I got mics set up as fast as I could but only captured a minute or two of the pounding… so I waited… the farmer came over & asked what I was doing and after another five minutes the drill guys gave me a wave and they released the pressure on the water & then restarted the pounding!

Total serendipity (with a little perseverance/patience) – right place, right time!

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!
