Carmi's latest idea for TP is a series; please check out his beautiful
pelican shots at Written.Inc
My series comes from my April trip to the South Island of New Zealand this year.
It is autumn (fall): clear crisp days with not a cloud to be seen, not a stir of breeze. I am driving past Lake Dunstan, in a region known as Central Otago.
It is a low-rainfall, arid area; summers are hot and dry,
and winters very cold - and dry.
I stop to take a photo of the lake and the bare hills behind it:
There's a boat coming around a curve in the lake -
It's people water-skiing!
At this time of year! it may be sunny, but it's pretty cool
outside the reach of my car heater.
They sweep past and carry on down the lake...
The wake's disappearing, and the water will soon be still again.
I haven't messed with the colours in these shots at all
- the water really is that blue.
I'm thinking that I might print 3 of these photos, enlarged,
and have them framed as a tryptich for a wall in our new house.
