Still going through images from New Zealand and today I thought for Monochrome Wednesday I could convert one of my images from Lake Mapourika. It was an early part of the trip.
Monochrome Wednesday – Lake Mapourika
When I look back at my trip to New Zealand, and to Franz Josef in particular, it is hard not to think it was terrible there. We did get a lot of rain and I always think it did nothing but rain. That would be wrong though. We did a couple of hours in the morning where it didn’t rain much. We were doing a boat cruise on Lake Mapourika with Glacier Country Lake Tours.
It was such a beautiful morning and I have great memories from there. I took so many photos and I know I’ve shown some already, New Zealand Wanderings Day 2 – Lake Cruise, but I thought it might be nice to do one in monochrome. The lake was so still and we managed to get some great reflections. I’m sure I will do more in the future.
It was that contrast of the still water with no wind, but the sky looked so stormy. You know how much I love stormy skies. Really the only thing that could have made the conditions even better was a bit of sunlight. That moment when you could be deluded into believing the weather will be good because the sun is out, even though there are dark clouds. That feeling that it will be great, then the rain starts. That would have to be one of my favourite conditions to take photos in.
I went through the images and have worked on this one for you.
It would be great if you would like to participate, especially if you are enjoying the monochrome challenge again. If you want to contribute there is a Facebook group, TPM Photos which you can join and share your images. Of course, if you are blogging no reason why you can’t post your own. I like this challenge and it is nice to be thinking in monochrome again.
