Reviving by Capturing-the-Light Reviving by Capturing-the-Light
This was taken between Te Awamutu and Ohaupo, in the Waikato, North Island, New Zealand. One of those rare moments for me when the landscape and the elements conspire to create a photographers dream. My favourite condition, mist and sunrise combined, made my day for sure.

Thank you so much for viewing my work.

To everyone that favourites any of my work, please accept in advance my sincere thanks for doing so. For those that comment on this or any other photograph, you will always recieve a reply. Demands on my time may mean a delay on occassions in responding, but I will always reply. Thank you for visiting this page, the support of all visitors is truly appreciated. Simon

Amazing capture! I love the way low mist seems like water hiding the grass and small trees.

Beautiful capture, NZ is very much like England so you must feel like you are home from home....

Donna thank you so much for that, and yes you are right to a great extent, particularly the Waikato region where we live, its much like home. There is one telling difference though, which if we had known prior to coming here, I think we would still be in the UK now. That is there is no national public footpath network in New Zealand. You can access national parks etc, but means driving to them, otherwise particularly where I am there is no access to the land at all. Therefore all my photographs have one thing in common, they are for the most part all taken with a 300mm lens, as you have to shoot everything off the roadside. Getting into the landscape is NOT AN OPTION, landowners do not want you there. Which to a mad landscape photographer like myself, and keen walkers like Dawn and I, the option of returning home just for these reasons alone look more attractive each day!! Simon

Arr yes I can understand why, you don't seem to have the freedom you
intended, and you are limited, is there not places you can drive to
and get out and walk you have found...

There are a few, but I cannot convey how insignificant they are in comparison to the access back home. But such is life and we will make the most of it while we are here.
