Signal Hill

Little Huia

Had a great shoot last night! The weather was looking dodgy but the forecast said no rain & thankfully it was right. I lugged my gear up the top of Signal Hill at Whatipu and set a timelapse running – this is four hours and 1,509 photos later…

I so love the colour shift as the sun sets – for about half an hour either side of actual sunset, witnessing the continuous gradient of changing light is about as close to religion as I get: four hours on top of a hill, watching colour drain from the sky & the stars slowly revealing themselves….

When was the last time you watched the sun set? And where?

    Your photos are beautiful. They look so peaceful and quiet, while we know how loud it can be in there. Last time I saw a sunset was one month ago in the Netherlands. I walked trough the pier far towards the sea while there was a huge wind. The waves crashing on the rocks, wind gusts were very strong, seagulls shouting, planes flying over to land in Amsterdam, kites, flags, ships honking. Thats a feeling that even a video camera and sound postproduction cannot create (unfortunately).
