One of my favourite places in New Zealand, is beautiful Lake Matheson.
On favourable mornings, the reward for your early morning hiking aspirations is a crystal clear and calm lake offering pristine reflections of the alpine spectacle before your eyes.
Not the most conducive cloud cover formation for a landscape image (covering Mount Cook wholesale), but, after a failed attempt the morning prior, I was thankful for the fire in the sky this second morning's attempt.
This is an image from my spring 2011 campaign of the South Island.

The fact that this is a picture surprise me - it look so different that I expected photos would be, but then I'm only a beginner photographer. Overall, it's one of the great piece you had taken. I say well-done on the photography, Octane! You are an amazing photographer and keep it up!
The sky's redness and the mountain's white are beautifully captured. The reflection in the water still is the cream of the crop. One could argue that the colors aren't very appealing, but that's a matter of taste. Still, one can almost feel the cold climate and appreciate the atmosphere. To capture such calm waters is moderately difficult. You were on the right time at the right spot with the right tool. Well done!
It is fantastic!
I will now retire to my room and write a song. I will call it 'Smoke on the water, fire in the sky'...
I already have the riff in my head.
Respect from South Africa.
Farewell!Well, its not an actuall farewell. Sorry for scaring you!
But there is some things that i will tell you! soo...uppdate!
I will be less here on dA, since i failed in math (with only one point!!) wich led me to start on a speciall line called "introductionline" for those who has not passed either "math", "english" or "swedish". And since i failed at math i will go there. My high grades in english and swedish obviously doesnt matter. *sighs*
And i have to study math atleast 2-3 hours per day so i can do a big test in math in september and go to an ordinary school.
If i fail at ths i will get no education. And be sent to The Wall. So in will need to study as much as i can, wich leeds me to have not so much time with you lovely folks here on dA. *sighs*
I bought a new camera! A Fujifilm S3300! I love it!
also i have started to use more white in my mani
