    Lake Rotioti - Nelson Lakes NZ

    Little buggers wouldn't stand still in the right place for long enough for me to get the shot I really wanted. This was the best of the bunch.

    Whoaaa! Awesome background! Spare the ducks and capture more of the sceneries. Just joking. I agree with you, it's too hard to keep these beings to stay or even be at the spot where we want them. I think that's what makes photography challenging. You guys are really blessed with spectacular scenes out there. Hope to see more if possible.

    I can see a lot of similarity on the mountains, Colin. Thanks for letting me see this. It is really an awesome view.

    They are both wonderful shots. The first would be just as great without the ducks..."little buggers"!

    great Colin - I think you captured the mood nicely. I like the rising mist. What time of day was that.

    The problem with a wide angle lens is that if you don't put something in the foreground then all you end up with is teeny weeny hills and clouds in the distance

    Not to rub it in or anything, but it's about an hour's drive from where I live, and I've been there so many times the car knows the way all by itself

    Hi Mark,

    Off memory, around 8am, just before the sun came over the mountains.

    I might have another crack at it shortly ... I should have been at the other jetty as it aligns better with the lake.

    I like the second one and the last one, except for the ducks, I think there are enough photos of sitting mallards in this world, and probably other worlds too, the way they spread.

    The foreground is also a little soft, I think. I also think the picture would be fine without the beach. Maybe better, as it brings little to justify the real estate in the image it takes up, in my opinion.
