The Catlins

This shot was taken driving through the Catlins national park in the south west of the south Island.. Spotted the light shining through and rushed out to get this shot it started raining straight after I shot off this photo.

    Nice shot Will, very typical NZ scenery. Is this stitched or a crop?

    Thanks Will. This is probably a dumb question but why would you do this in two images with the 40. Is it to get a larger print. I would have thought that you could get this with the 40 without stitching.

    Cheers Adrian, I found the rooftop tent on the prado really good Im a tall guy at 6 foot 6 and I had plenty of room pretty much like a double bed… I got the optional camping kit which had gas cooker and cutlery and all the other stuff you need… Im not too clued up on the vans but for me I wanted to be able to drive wherever I could to get to the spots!

    Jeff I probably could have taken this shot in one shot If I had the 28mm lens on but I was literally running around setting my tripod up before the rain hit so Decided to take two with the 35-90mm at 35mm, Also quite a few shots I stitch If I can for better print quality.

    Thanks Will. I know that feeling. It is one of the joys of photography in NZ.
