    Wicked son just wicked I've got to get to NZ to shoot with you soon if you'll have me and you are welcome to the Snowy mountains any time.

    Those trees look like they have had a real hard time getting a foot hold.
    brilliant.

    Always looking for folks to shoot with here, so you are most welcome. I'd love to go to the Snowy Mountains, i couldn't make 6 years ago because my backpacker car didn't have snowtyres.

    This area is only a about 5 k's from the Tasman sea - you can occasionally hear the ocean roar in the background; its quite windy so there are alot of windswept trees on the top part of the cliffs. But the main foe to the trees are introduced possums and feral goats.

    really like the colours, did you use a filter for those shots?

    The colors are so vivid and beautiful! I love how rich the greens are. And those trees are so cool!

    Nice work!

    thanks all for your comments :D glad you enjoy the pics.

    Bry05, I use an UV filter on my lens. The deep colours I get come via tweaking various layers in photoshop. But of course, most of all it helps if you get great lighting and have an awesome landscape to shoot!
