ABOUT THIS GROUP
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
The Southern Alps. Yes, more water in the form of clouds and snow. The sky has been darkened by red filtration, then desaturated.
Allan Bigham West coast beach
Not wild but tranquil, shapes appealed.
Allan Bigham The Manukau Harbour
A tranquil view with a reflected sunset.
Allan Bigham The Manukau
At sunrise, a beautiful time of day.
Allan Bigham Storm at Onemana
Thoughts of Nicholas Monsarrat and “The Cruel Sea” occurred to me.
Allan Bigham Yellowstone Grand Cany
The magnificence of nature.
Allan Bigham Niagara Falls
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.
Allan Bigham Lake Pearson, Canterbu
The shapes and the back lighting on the water appealed.
Allan Bigham Hunn's Lake Upstate NY
Glorious autumn colours. There is no fixed point of interest. The image displays well as an A1 print.
