Today I am stranded in Queenstown NZ...SO I thought I'd share the remarkable view I have from the place that I'm staying at. The snowy Remarkables at sunset. I'm not complaining, Queenstown (and surrounding area) is simply magic in winter. My fav place in NZ for sure!
The Remarkables mountain range is located in Otago (South Island New Zealand). Apparently got the name because it runs directly north to south.
ND400 filter|shutter 5-10 secs..can't remember! too busy staring at this stunning sight
Certainly was! was a secret place too! you could see this shot from anywhere on the shores of busy Queenstown but just a little walk out of the way and I found a really secluded place to view it the boat wasn't running at the time so that helped haha
I went immediatly on google Earth & found this location. New Zealand is one of the most amazing, wild & cool in the world Lucky man if you live there. Wishing than mother earth will let you quite for a while with her terrible earthquakes. Friendly with you
WOW! missed when you uploaded this. Pity you don't show the excif data I like checking that from time to time. The water just looks amazing! what was the water like to give that effect with the long shutter?
Yes! ha thank you Wow ND400 filter, I really want to try out the higher strength filters. See that is what I mean the water looks lovely and milky suggesting a movement but you have quite clear reflections from the centre contradicting that. Or, was that just the combination of sky and mountain reflections over different parts of the water?
They're really fantastic with the right settings you can achieve quite long exposures pretty much in the middle of a sunny day! (perfect for waterfalls etc.) and I find (with the right settings) it usually exposures an image prefectly without further processing on the computer end of things hence why I've been using it for low-light shots aswell
Could be! not too sure the boat is sitting on the strip of reflections so that might have something to do with it! the water was very calm near the shore which was weird seeing as generally thats where the waves tend to head for!
