Allan Bigham-Upper Nihotipu Dam

Allan Bigham-Upper Nihotipu Dam

This was completed in 1923, and while not a landscape, it sits comfortably in its environment. Well engineered objects have a beauty of their own.

Allan Bigham Manukau Harbour

Viewed from our home. The clouds are a beautiful representation of water.Perhaps our affinity for them is because we emerged from the water in primordial times!

Allan Bigham The Southern Alps

Allan Bigham The Southern Alps

The Southern Alps. Yes, more water in the form of clouds and snow. The sky has been darkened by red filtration, then desaturated.

Not wild but tranquil, shapes appealed.

Thoughts of Nicholas Monsarrat and “The Cruel Sea” occurred to me.

I sought to capture the power of the water; no long shutter speeds and “cottonwool” like water!

Allan Bigham Bridal Veil

I like the delicate pattern, almost Bridal Veil like. This is preferable, in my view, to using very slow shutter speeds and giving the water a “cottonwool” appearance.

The shapes and the back lighting on the water appealed.

Glorious autumn colours. There is no fixed point of interest. The image displays well as an A1 print.
