The Waihou River in winter is prone to flooding. Some years once and other years five or six times. A picturesque lake is created close to town in an area that is scrubby pasture with a few browsing cows for the rest of the year. With the Kaimai Range and Mount Te Aroha on the eastern side, the sun rises late over the town and by the time it shows over the mountain the blue and golden hours are well past.
My goal is to present images of objects and places as naturally as possible with minimal post processing. I think the natural qualities will come through for the viewer with a little contemplation. Unfortunately there is little time for such things these days.
