Trotter's Gorge, North Otago, New Zealand, 1990


Trotter's Gorge, North Otago, New Zealand, 1990



Remarks

I had not long purchased the Rolliecord and wanted to familiarise myself with it more fully so I decided to spend a day at the Trotter's Gorge picnic spot near Palmerston, Otago.

I was pleased with a number of the images which resulted from that day's excursion but this one is particularly memorable. Looking at it again brings back memories of soft lighting, gentle sound of birdsong, and standing, barefoot, in the middle of a stream with freezing water running around my ankles while I released the shutter.
