Moke lake, queenstown... starry nights from our favourite ridge line overlooking moke lake! this was from one of our first late night adventures to this awesome spot. the aurora put on a pretty incredible display earlier on the night but just a faint glow remained when we took this shot before heading down for the night.

Moonrise over temple peak! πŸ˜„
.
this was one of those moments that was completely unplanned. while waiting to shoot sunset in the total opposite direction, we noticed the moon rising over temple peak as the last light of the day was washing over it. most of our shots are busy so i love how simple this one is (even if jo hates it πŸ˜‚)
.
this week we are taking advantage of a weather window and heading off on an epic adventure. can anybody guess where? (it has something to do with trolls πŸ˜‰)

Light the way!
waipapa point, southland nz
.
one of those rare evenings where everything goes according to plan. we knew that the aurora and the milky way lined up perfectly with the historic waipapa point lighthouse but we didn’t expect to get the shot we wanted on our first attempt. this remains one of our all-time favourite images, which is why it now hangs on our wall at home. if you would like a copy of your own, follow the link in our description! 😊

The southern lights dancing over tunnel beach!
.
throwback to that epic display that we captured last may! this is still the biggest aurora show that we have seen to date and it lasted for the majority of the evening πŸ˜„! a night that we will never forget - hopefully we get more shows like this soon! 😊

Aurora glow at meiklejohns jetty, queenstown!
.
a massive aurora was what we were hoping for the other night when we headed down to meiklejohns jetty, but we only managed to get a faint glow after hours of being food for the sandflies. it’s still great to catch the aurora no matter how big it is, but it got us thinking about how often plans fail in photography. we have less than 200 images on our profile. to get them, we took nearly 100,000 shots. out of the images on our profile, we only feel really satisfied with around 25 where we got exactly what we were planning for. this means that our planned shots fail most of the time that we head out and that’s ok. whether we get something or not we just love being out there and doing it! πŸ˜„

Winter reflections at lake kirkpatrick, queenstown!
.
some incredible clouds and reflections on a cold winter night at lake kirkpatrick! this was taken after that magical storm that blanketed the entire area with fresh snow. the light from the rising moon was beginning to hit the peaks, lighting them up perfectly and the reflections were some of the best that we had seen out here! πŸ˜„πŸ‘Œ

Gertrude saddle, fiordland np!
.
here is another one of the incredible view points from above the saddle! you can point the camera in any direction up here and easily find some pretty breath-taking compositions. even with a clear sky for sunset, the golden rays on the mountain, the mist and this epic little foreground definitely made up for it! πŸ˜„

Gertrude saddle, fiordland national park
.
this little calf destroyer leads to one of the best views around fiordland. from here you can see all the way down to milford sound and beyond to the tasman sea. most people do gertrude saddle as an easy half-day walk but the best option is to camp up at the saddle. once the sun starts to set and the tourists have left, you will have this incredible place all to yourself! πŸ˜„

Milford sound, fiordland national park
.
i think we finally have an image of the sound that we are happy with! πŸ˜„we have been wanting to combine these amazing mossy rocks with the famous low tide reflections and colourful high cloud since first visiting milford 2 years ago! to finally get the conditions we needed and get the composition we had been planning for so long was an awesome feeling. having said that, our favourite part of this image is stirling falls being dwarfed by the surrounding peaks in the distance! when you consider the falls are 151 metres high you start to get a good idea of the scale of this incredible place! 😳
