Biography

Hello...thank you for stopping by...

I am on Hawaii Island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and am surrounded by water. Many of my images have water in them too :) Most of my early morning pictures were taken while walking my buddy boy.

A special thank you to all of you that like, comment, share and view my pictures. Looking forward to seeing yours too!

      Yes, it rains a lot in New Zealand. Nice composition with the mountains and clouds both sloping down towards the centre.

        Awww, you, too! Good job! I gave in, too, as I felt it rude not to make an effort. Only about six more photographers there that morning. I see you were given a dusting of snow on the mountains to add to the allure, I shall not bother uploading any of mine now! – The birds are cormorants.

            You have already gone to a few places that I wanted to see/photograph, and your lens is sharper. I am turning the same shade as the vegetation, with envy. - Essentially, one just needs to follow the fleet when touring NZ...

              Thank you, Irene. It's a big place and so much to see! This lens is crazy sharp and lucky me because now I don't need to do any further sharpening. As much as I prefer color, I don't want you to be "green" in that way. I am on my own and making my own way, but being on a tour is really a lot of fun too!

            Hm, I know that problem from my previous notebook. Now I have one with a better monitor and I could calibrate it. I think, this shot is maybe a little bit too dark, but with a backlight image you can always say you wanted it to be that way :).

              Thank you very much, Michael! You are right this one looks a bit dark and only after I uploaded it did I realize I loaded the darker of the two I had. I think I need to turn off the auto brightness on the screen as it changes brightness every time I open it.
              • Michael Flick Photography
                1 week ago
                The problem I encountered with many notebook monitors is, that the colors and brightness changes extremely depending on the angle of view. That makes it very hard to edit.

        Ozone hole - yes apparently so. It's sposed to be an issue across the water for Tasmania too. However, it has shrunk from where it was in the 80's too I've been told. Certainly a little thinner than other parts of the world. Loving the images that you are posting! (As always. You do good.)

        From what I understand the pushing is normal behaviour. We have similar tourist experiences in Australia with bus loads of folk from Asian countries. Selfie sticks everywhere!
        • Joe Lightheart
          1 week ago
          Haha! That's funny. They are the only ones using the sticks. Pushing must be cultural as when I push back there is no notice that I did something to them.

          scary normal behavior?

        The colour of the lake comes through nicely, Joe. It was raining so hard when I was there that I only took a few photos of the Chinese tourists in front of the church (closed, used to offer that million dollar view in pre-Instagram days) to see whether my home-made camera rain cover was any good. No point taking photos of the grey lake...
