I've recently been spending a lot of time down in Te Anau.
Far too much time some would say!
Mrs O suggested I may have a “bit on the side” down there but then laughed, as she does at me often, and wandered off mumbling something that sounded like “I should be so lucky that another women would take you….”.
Anyway back to the story, I photographed Mitre Peak like we all do thinking as I did it of all the amazing images I've seen of it and wondering if one day I may get my own shot that I could be proud of.
I was aware at the time of the sun coming through the clouds but it didn't really seem to be that impressive, the mental picture I had taken was far more dramatic. I got home and had a little play and low and behold there was far more drama than was visible to the eye in the image. It would have been so easy to just trash it and carry on after all we had seen a great many sights the initially seemed far more interesting with loads more potential.
I'm glad I stuck with it I'm pleased with the results……..
