I really like the brief moment of anticipation between pressing the shutter button and seeing the result. This photo gave me 20 seconds of that.

It was my first time to wake up for a sunrise shoot since I arrived in NZ but the clouds wouldn’t permit me to take proper photos. Oh well, that’s just another reason for me to try again, and see this beautiful coastline one more time.

Backpacker Chronicles turned 5 today! Imagine that!
But I haven’t been doing much backpacking lately. Would a name change be wise? :)

Early morning at Mairangi Bay. That’s Rangitoto island in the distance.

I love how the most vibrant colors come out after the sun goes down. There are more to sunsets than just the blaring sun.

"Be humble, for you are made of earth, be noble, for you are made of stars" – Serbian proverb

This photo was taken close to 4 years ago, when I had no practical experience shooting the milky way. It’s noisy and dull but I like it anyway, particularly because this was a good time for me. It’s often the memories I associate with my photos that I like more than the photos themselves.
