A couple of weeks ago I licensed some of my photography to a New Zealand company named Black Fish that produces high quality calendars that contain iconic images of New Zealand’s North and South Islands. The Calendar should be available for purchase around the middle of this year 2011 in New Zealand. At this stage I am unsure if copies will be available outside of New Zealand in retail outlets – however, it will no doubt be possible to purchase copies online for various online e-tailers. Or, I will have several copies which I am happy to make available to any readers who wish to purchase one. Revisiting my 2009 photography from New Zealand’s South Island for this calendar project has been a very enjoyable experience for me – almost as enjoyable as actually being there. I am now very much looking forward to going back in July this year. This photograph was one of my favourites from my last trip to the South Island. Taken by helicopter as the sun was setting across Mount Cook and Mount Tasman. We had removed the doors from the helicopter to enable better viewing for photography. My primary memory is how cold it was. It was-19 degrees celsius ambient air temperature and a fair bit colder with wind chill; but the scenery was stunning, the conditions perfect and the frost nipped fingers well worth the effort.
