A cool, calm dusk descends over the bay at Kaiteriteri, near Abel Tasman National Park on the north west coast of New Zealand’s South Island.
The precise origin of the name ‘Kaiteriteri’ from Maori culture is unknown, but all interpretations appear to centre around food and movement. Perhaps it was the abundance of food in the calm waters that drew people here. Clear blue water and sheltered bays and islands make for somewhat of a playground for New Zealanders these days, and stunning images of New Zealand for a landscape photographer.
My intention with this photograph is to reflect the contrast of forms…the seemingly immovable landscape with the silky fluid stillness of the waters, and the dynamic morphing of the clouds passing through towards the inland ranges.
A new release open edition photograph of McLaren Vale will soon be on permanent display at the stunning new Angove Cellar Door in McLaren Vale.
The cellar door, on Chalk Hill Road, was recently completed to a very high spec and sits spectacularly within some of Angove’s best vines.
Richard Angove, who commisioned the photograph for the space says, ’I think this is the best photograph of McLaren Vale I have ever seen!’
Panoramic prints will be available through the cellar door, which will also showcase a 60 inch print of ‘Willunga Glow’.
