Dusk + kō




shot with Canon 5Dmk3 and Zeiss 50mm 1.4 ZE

Nice day to be airborne


After a week of strong winds, today was perfect for flying! So I went to Whitireia Park and flew out off the cliffs and wow – that landscape!!


This second shot is a frame grab from some 4k video I shot, slowly rotating as I flew about 500m out to sea – thats Titahi Bay in the distance….
