August 16: Warm inside

It started snowing properly last night about 6pm and must have kept going pretty steady through the night as we woke up to a decent blanket of snow this morning. Luckily we had kept the fire going through the night so it was still pretty warm inside but looked pretty awesome outside. I liked this photo because it captures the warm feeling of sitting inside while still being able to look out at the snow-scape… Another day off work to spend with the whanau on day 226 so I’m not complaining!

July 26: Then the sun came out…

I woke up this morning to see that the sun had come out after a super cold and frosty night and even though it was still freezing, the snow looked pretty awesome lit up by the sun. These photos are from Waikuku Beach, North Canterbury from about 8-9:30 this morning.

 

 

July 25: Snow day

Snow day! It was snowing a bit last night then woke up this morning to a very white Canterbury! It looks pretty awesome so I got dressed into lots of layers and headed down to the lake to grab some photos. It was OK for the first few minutes then the wind started picking up and my hands were so cold that they wouldn’t work any more so I came back inside to defrost. Heading out now so my earliest post on day 206 🙂

June 24: Winters afternoon

Heading home this afternoon and took a wee detour down to the Ashley River. Still learning with HDR but I like the result as you can have the effect of the clouds, see the snow on the mountains in the background and still be able to see the stones at the bottom of the water. This is the beauty  of the different exposures used in HDR and something that you wouldn’t be able to get in a normal photo. Still enjoy HDR on day 174 of my daily photo challenge!
