We didn't get home until 7pm tonight, the first job was to download the (over 1,000) photos from yesterdays wedding, and I am very happy to say they look really good.
I will talk more the wedding up in the mountains when I backblip yesterday & the Friday wedding too (that one involved a helicopter flight up into the mountains).
Back to today - funnily enough, we both slept into almost 9am, totally unheard of for us. Must have been exhausted after our 16 hour day yesterday.
Morning coffee and a leisurely chat with our friends who have a house in Twizel, they happened to be up there for the weekend.
I suggested we head up to Mt Cook and have a squiz at the phenomenon that happened a week ago.....tons and tons of ice broke off the glacier edge and if you have a look at the extras as well will give you an idea just how much ice is there. It really was a gasp moment.
This one is using the Canon with the Big Stopper, long exposure only 3 seconds and set to black & white in camera. The extras are using the trusty Sony.....
a real "gasp" moment.
We then went to The Hermitage for a very late lunch, something like 3pm !! We were famished.
To give you an idea of the difference, take a look at it when I took Gitama there last November. No comparison.
I really need a wee sleep, and tomorrow I will back blip the two wedding days - there will be no bride pictures though as they don't want anything showing on any type of social media before they see the photos themselves, which is absolutely fair enough.
