Summer winds whip up waves on the east shore of Lake Pukaki . Near Mount Cook National Park, Canterbury, South Island New Zealand. Check out the story behind this image over on our new blog!
We have recently launched a new website, after more than two years of planning, false starts, building and tweaking – it has been a somewhat painful experience at times, but we got there!
Anyway, part of this new website is our Blog. So far Sarah & I have been posting daily for over three weeks and I can’t see that easing up in a hurry – we have so many great new images to share along with a backlog of gear reviews to write, and heaps of New Zealand travel and photography advice to dispense!
So the terribly neglected Photo Autocracy will be segueing into a ‘blog about a blog’ – I will post links to our articles here and hopefully keep you all happy!
Head on over to read all about the making of today’s image – enjoy!

Welcome one and all to my Wednesday Wallpaper – on Thursday – although I’m sure it is still hump day somewhere….
This was made a couple of year’s back on a very productive three day trip up to Kaikoura, on the east coast of New Zealand’s South Island. You can view many more New Zealand photos over on our website.
If you are wanting this puppy as a desktop or iPad wallpaper, you will need to grab the large version from this link: [free iPad wallpaper] Password = freewallpaper
Safe travels on the web WordPressers!
Cheers – Todd
p.s. more than happy to discuss how our images are made in the comments stream.
Red sky and sunstar over New Zealand alpine tussocks from Pouakai Ridge at sunrise – Mt Egmont National Park.
Welcome to Wednesday and August (WTF???).
A little respite from South Island scenery this week, this image was made from the Pouakai Ridge on the Northern flank of Mt Taranaki. Sarah & I hiked up in the dark on the previous evening – fortunately the sun broke through, as it would have been a lot of effort for a photo of fog & mist shrouded tusssocks….
Sunset over The Blue Lake, St Bathans Central Otago – this lake was formed in the gully created by gold mining activities back in Ye Olde Olden days. A very pretty addition to the landscape and a real photographic gem.
This one has been sitting in unfinished for a few months. No, not HDR, just a singh ray grad filter and a D7000. Image processed in LR4.
Sunrise Mt Taranaki / Egmont, New Zealand, a photo by Todd Sisson (nee Crimson Kiwi) on Flickr. I have just posted this image to my Flickr account. This is another good example of the key principle that I blathered on … Continue reading →
