Mitre Peak

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……..

  1. Nice job. Something moved you to take this image, perhaps your subconscious eye saw something your conscious eye missed. Thanks for sharing.

    • I think your right Mr Fowler. Once we get out of our own way and let our subconscious take over things can appear that we hadnt been aware of.

  2. The eye is our greatest asset,apart from helping us to SEE

  3. Stunning. Print it and put it on your wall.

  4. I agree that it is difficult standing in front of an icon and comparing your image to other more famous versions. Especially given the 10 minute random window of photographic opportunity you have.

    Its still worth doing and when you manage to apply some special individual vision, as you have here, its well worth doing.
