TOKU MAUNGA O TARANAKI.
Ever since I entered the realm of astro photography, I have dreamed of and imagined one day capturing a shot of my beloved mountain in my homeland of Taranaki.
Tired and jetlagged from my recent work in Europe, I knew I only had a small window left to work with in 2018 to capture the shot that has eluded me for over 3 years. So at the whim of opportunity and the fortune of good weather, I summoned another mate to make the mad dash for the Naki!
After a 5 hour drive, we turned up just after nightfall and arrived into freezing conditions with a wind chill well below zero. We managed to get 3 decent compositions in before we got totally clouded out.. even on a forecasted clear night an alpine environment will always have it's way! This was definitely one of those moments of taking the opportunity that presented itself!

Yötaivas ylläni. Vaikka olenkin keskellä linnunrataa, näyttää että se kaartuu pääni yli.
Viimeinen yö Lapissa on edessä ja vielä odotan taivaantulien syttymistä.
On ollut ilo saada kokeilla Sigma 14/1.8 Art-linssiä.
