Doubtful Sound, South Island, New Zealand
A quick one tonight to say hello before heading to bed. We spent the last two days kayaking Doubtful Sound and had a spectacular time. Doubtful Sound is a fjord, not an actual sound, and is full of all the corresponding majesty and drama. Simply spectacular. I strapped my 5D and Aquatech housing to the top of the kayak and spent a little time playing in the water (the really, really cold water!), and learning. Shooting in the water is a whole other ballgame, but I can see much more of this in my future. So much fun. Can’t wait to get in the water in Jamaica. A couple more days to go in NZ, hoping to make some photographs at Morekai boulders, then homeward bound.
Michael Frye is the next author to be published by Craft & Vision, and his book Light & Land, Landscapes in the Digital Darkroom will be out in about 24 hours from now. Michael’s a good teacher and knows his stuff and even if you’ve got no desire to shoot landscapes, the Lightroom stuff is worth a read. I just wrote a book on the whole Lightroom thing and Michael taught me a thing or two. And the photographs are gorgeous. Stay tuned.
