The most stunning sunset I have ever seen – Lake Pukaki, New Zealand.

I have just got back from a week-long job that saw me spending time at Lake Pukaki, amongst other south island scenic hot-spots.  Whilst at Lake Pukaki I witnessed one of the most stunning sunsets I have ever seen.  Below is one of the panoramas I took of the high-point of the sunset.  This photo was taken on my iPhone 4s and stitched to a panorama and edited in-camera (in-phone?).

Once upon a time I would never even bother taking photos with a phone because the quality was so poor I always used to end up deleting the photos afterwards.  Nowadays however it is a different story.

Anyway, this post is not about technology or equipment, rather it is about how beautiful this country we call home is and how lucky we are to live here.  It’s also a reminder to us to keep our eyes open (and our phone/camera close at hand) – beauty is all around us, and if we take it for granted we will miss out on all those brief, beautiful moments like this sunset.  I hope you enjoy looking at this photo as much as I do!  Take care, Patrick

I am a wedding photographer based in beautiful Queenstown, New Zealand. I have been full-time with the photography thing since 2006 and still can’t believe I get to do what I love for a job! Here are a few words that I think sum me up: I AM…tall and bald, happy, imaginative, constantly hungry, active and friendly. I LOVE…my girl, coffee, photography, fooooooood, my family and friends, riding bikes, being outside, the simple things in life, people… I love my life! I believe that wedding photography can and should be SIMPLE, NATURAL, BEAUTIFUL.
