So this is my third landscape from my 15 day New Zealand road trip. I'm aiming to try to process one shot a day for the next two weeks so I'm sorry if you get sick of my threads. (We'll see how I go as I start back at uni on Thursday!)
Anyway this shot was (an uneventful) sunrise taken at the Moeraki Boulders, just north of a little fishing village called Moeraki on New Zealand's South Island.
When planning for our 15 day driving tour around New Zealand I really wanted to capture a sunset or sunrise at Moeraki, so I booked some accommodation at the caravan park. It was the cheapest place we stayed in and it was quite a good little cabin and a great little place.
I headed down to the boulders on the afternoon we got there but unfortunately it was overcast and I didn't capture anything decent. The next morning I still pursued and woke up to shoot the sunrise, but alas, it was still overcast. It was also low tide, so I only really had this one boulder and the few smaller ones in the frame to play with.
I was fortunate that a little break in the clouds appeared just before I was going to leave which added a bit of interest to the shot!
I think a few might comment on the horizon. It doesn't appear straight but in order to get the boulders to line up in the image i was shooting at an angle to the waves so it looks uneven. Anyone have any idea's to try fix it or will I just leave it?
