I’ve been playing with some naturally high contrast images recently.  It all started with an image of Lion Rock at Piha beach and I liked the graphical look of the images so much that I’ve looked out for other high contrast opportunities since.

I just noticed that we have a new follower on the blog.  Hello – you know who you are!

It’s prompted me into signing in and putting some new photos up.  Strangely enough the photos are from exactly the same walk as the last post in July.

It’s spring here now and the weather was glorious today, so we did some jobs then spent the afternoon walking to Brown’s Bay along the rocks.

This was the first real outing for my new camera.  I’ve replaced my trusty, but slightly older Canon 450d with a Canon 700d and 15-85 zoom lens.  In general it’s newer and better in a number of ways.  Most significantly it can capture video but that’s still to come.  Although the controls are virtually identical to my previous camera, it’s still taking a little bit to get used to.  the other one had really become part of my body and I could fly around the controls without looking in split seconds.

Anyway, here are a good selection of shots from the walk.
