Broken - finally found something! The chap who owns the tree stopped to ask why i was photographing, which led to an interesting conversation!

Ability - Test cricket debutant Kyle Jamieson steaming in to bowl at Virat Kohli, today in Wellington, NZ, Day 1 of the 1st Test Match. He took 3 wickets in the first two sessions on debut, that's ability :) Handheld with a 24-105mm in the stands. Magic! p.s nowhere near as fuzzy when not reduced to fit the 500kb size!

My favourite game and a great capture of the bowler on his delivery stride. Was lucky enough to be at Lords in 86 when another Kiwi bowler with some talent (Hadlee) took England apart! Would of liked to of seen this image on Flickr to see it nice and sharp.

Winter is tricky here in the early Autumn of New Zealand, however this stark scene of a fallen tree washed out by a glacial flow to rest on the shoreline near Haast, looked sufficiently bleak to fit tht brief. Winter is coming...

Summer on Mirror Lake (Book title) - i had a struggle with inspiration on this one taking pictures of black sheep, grey scale landscapes, etc., but it turns out there is a book with mirror lake in the title, and it was summery :)

Nice reflection - I like to balance mine so the exposures match!

End of the line - Transport and Technique (High Key). Never tried this technique before so don't know if this is what is intended. Made me think! These abandoned tram cars were off the road leading out to the end of the Otago Peninsula just out from Dunedin, South Island, NZ:
