The Cream Trip Reworked

I have re-worked my older photo essay about a day out on the Bay of Islands Cream Trip which I did way back in the year 2002. The original essay was spread over multiple pages and had rather low-resolution low pixel sized images to cater for the slower web speeds then. It is now only …

Winding Road

Road Frustration

Quite often when I am outgoing somewhere and I see a photographic opportunity there is nowhere to pull over and safely stop off the road. So I carry on a while and if I haven’t gone too far past my objective when I find a wide enough shoulder to park off the road then I …

How Time Flies

Once again it’s been a long time since I last posted here. I updated my web site last year and took away the link to this blog since I wasn’t posting anything although I retained the blog on the site for later resurrection. I’ve updated the theme and am now working on customizing it to …

You never know when one of your photos might end up on a postage stamp. A photo I took of the Auckland Harbour Bridge back in 1961 has been selected for the $1.50 stamp in the Auckland Harbour Bridge 50th Anniversary set.

Matakohe Kauri Museum photos

I’ve not been well this past week so since I was feeling a bit better today I worked on getting some of the photos I took on a visit to the Matakohe Kauri Museum on September 20th up on this site in the Coppermine Photo Gallery. Update: now here – It was a difficult place …

Rainbow Falls in wet weather

We’ve had 7 continuous days of rain here – which is unusual for us. No, it has nothing to do with climate change, just a warm moist air stream from the tropics which has stayed around longer than normal. That gave me the chance to revisit Rainbow Falls at Kerikeri and take some new photos …
