If there is one place Kiwis like to spend their summer holidays it is at the beach. In fact with so many to choose from any beach will do. This one before us is called Smaills beach and just a short drive from the city. In the distance is Lawyers Head, then the top of St Clair and Highgrove and further away to the left is Blackhead quarry. Beyond that is Brighton. So as you can see I wasn't exaggerating. There are as many beaches to choose from as place names within the gambit of this picture.

One of the good things about photography is it gives me ample excuse to stop and explore parts of the countryside that I would normally drive right past. Here's one such place on the way to the mouth of the Taieri River south of Brighton.

Otago University is the jewel in Dunedins crown. Taken in winter during mid year break. The Leith river in the foreground runs through the campus and out to the harbour. On the right is the famous clocktower and registry. To the left ot the large trees is one of the old residences built to house the first professors of the university in the 1880s. Panorama created with Autostitch. Camera: Sony f828. This version has been downsized. The original file is too big for uploading onto flickr

A recent study on the use of light, point of view, time of day and season using an easily accessible landmark.
Try and see if you can tell which season it is or time of day. I think I have got the angle, light, exposure and composition just right. Have a look at the others on flickr and see if you agree or not and let me know your thoughts.
