I’ve been spending a heap of time going through all my photos from my trip to New Zealand in 2019. What a mess. I know I have said this before, but again, you should sort through your photos straight away otherwise it will be a massive job later on.
I found doubles of most of them and in some instances quadruples. I have spent the last two days sorting and deleting photos. I think we worked out I have deleted over 6000 so far. It has been driving me mad.
However, as you go through all the older photos you do get to look at them again. While going through a particularly large folder I found the photos from our boat trip on Lake Mapourika.
I kept looking at them thinking they would make great black and white images, or monochrome. Then I found one that I did back then for Monochrome Madness and I have put it as the header image.
I also saw the mountains and couldn’t help, once again, thinking about Ansel Adams.
Í’m sure his looked a lot better, but also the weather was against us quite a bit for this trip. The cloud was very low and it was threatening to rain all the time.
I do like it when you can see the layers of a landscape. Like being able to see mountains and mountains. Mountains are so fascinating to me. We really don’t have any giants in Australia.
There is something mystical when it is like that. The clouds are like blankets on the mountains.
It has been good being able to look at my images again. It does bring back lots of memories. Places I had forgotten about and places I loved.
I am sure you will see more of the photos from New Zealand showing up as monochrome images.
I’m going to put them into a gallery now, click on one and then you can scroll through them. That way you can see them without distractions.
Till next time.
