Here's a photo from my first shoot in New Zealand this year. It's the featured photograph on my latest blog where I reveal 'the secret sauce about photography'. An excerpt about the image from the blog :
"The lake surface was way too choppy to record any reflections. I know many people would just slap on a big stopper to calm down the water, but my preference was to go for a fast shutter speed and emphasize the incoming waves splashing over the rocks. Since Lake Tekapo is usually photographed to convey a sense of serenity and peacefulness, I wanted to show its dramatic visage, make people endure the wind whipping at their faces and feel the cold spray off the crashing waves."
