Giovanna Tucker midnight in NZ

Midnight in NZ, Lake Tekapo

ah Winter is here and its been snowing the last few days, I am so glad to be inside with the heater going 🙂 it’s not settling though so thats a shame, but its still freezing!

This photo is midnight on a full moon, and a long exposure making the moon turn into a big sunflare on Lake Tekapo, New Zealand, normally when taking pictures of the moon you need to take a separate shot of the moon as well with different settings and then put them together on the computer.

Have a good week everyone 🙂

Queenstown New Zealand

Christmas night in Queenstown New Zealand

I missed New Years as I was flying back from New Zealand to England, in theory I should have had lots of New Years (as I stopped in NZ, Australia, Bangkok, Dubai and England) but instead I didn’t have any, I didn’t think I would mind but it turns out I do.

I have been busy trying to decide on a photography project for this year, i’m going to put all the thief of my photos behind me and start a new year fresh, happy and motivated, so I have finally decided just in time to still be within the first week of 2013!

I’m going to do a Weekly Creative Photography Project and to start week 1 and because I’ve just got back from 6 weeks in NZ, I’ve got a photo from Queenstown, New Zealand a Long Exposure at Twilight on Christmas Day (you may need to click on it to see it properly).

I have had a very busy year last year, getting married twice (don’t worry it was to the same guy!) next week I’ll post a wedding photo, the photographer in New Zealand did a great job at getting some creative shots of us, which as a photographer I appreciated, but unfortunately because I was the bride I didn’t get to take many shots myself, gutted! I guess it’s the one time when I need to just chill and let someone else be in control.

I love New Zealand the photo opportunities there are endless, we made it into Milford Sound but the weather was not on our side, I wouldn’t have minded if the weather was awful but it was just bland, white sky with nothing but complete cloud cover, it did not make for pretty photos, still while I was there we went to Arrowtown, Queenstown, Kaikoura, Pancake Rocks, Hamner Springs, Lake Tekapo, Mount Cook, Akaroa, French Farm, Arthus Pass, Christchurch among others, so I’m sure somewhere amongst my thousands of photos there will be photos to post.

Merry Xmas and Happy New Years to everyone out there, I am a little late but better late than never and I hope 2013 brings you all you dream of!

Being Boxing Day and being on the other side of the world from my family for Christmas here is a lovely photo of New Zealand, Moeraki Boulders to let you all know I’m thinking of you all x

“The Moeraki Boulders are unusually large and spherical boulders lying along a stretch of Koekohe Beach on the wave cut Otago coast of New Zealand

My heart goes out to everyone back home, the latest earthquakes have been going on for over a year (Since September 2010) and have caused considerable damage, loss of lives and heart ache, I feel so hopeless being on the other side of the world but I want you to all know, I’m thinking of you, stay safe x

Normally Fridays are getting to know me better and in-light of the recent earthquakes in Christchurch, New Zealand over night and because that is my home town, I’m going to make today’s about Christchurch, well Canterbury really the province in which Christchurch is in.

and as it just so happened last week, I was out taking photos in London and I was walking along a road that I hadn’t been on before leading to Trafalgar Square and I saw a plaque on a building, so I stopped to read it (as you do, because London is such an interesting city) and the Plague read:

“Canterbury Province of New Zealand In March 1948 on this site formerly 41 Charing Cross, the Canterbury association met and planned the settlement of the province founded on the 16 of December 1850 by english settlers let by John Robert Goodley”

So I had to take a photo.

Christchurch is very special to me, it’s where I was born, where I grew up, where my family is so I need you to be safe Christchurch and stop with the earthquakes already! they have been going on far to long…

A little bit different today, since I am from New Zealand I thought it was time for some New Zealand love!

These gorgeous sleepy seals are just hanging out in Kaikoura where you can walk right up to them, but be careful not to get too close as they will let you know!

This was done in a HDR style making it look all dreamy.

Thinking of you all back home x
