Ancient views part I - New Zealand part XXII

Thursday, 14 May 2020

(Since, as you all probably know already, my main goal is to raise awareness for the importance of wild nature by showing it in my images, it seems important to me to display some of the pictures, of course. Unfortunately I still just cannot find the time to write the articles I would like to here on my website for all my series of images. So I decided to show the upcoming sets of images just with a very few words instead of not showing them at all. Sorry for that. Hope you enjoy the pictures nevertheless and may they hopefully speak for themselves. And of course, your thoughts and feedback are welcome anytime.) The series you can see in this blog entry shows the first set of some rather mixed impressions I took on different locations along New Zealand's west coast.

On this occasion I would also like to point out to the Landschaftsfotografie Podcast Episode 49, I had the pleasure to record with Nicolas Alexander Otto. But please notice that this one is in German.

Ancient views part I - New Zealand part XXII

As far as I know, the Pororari River is mainly known for its cristal clear waters. But we experienced it after extreme rain falls, which swept away the bridge between Franz Josef and Fox Glacier (the only connection between south and north on the entire west coast), just one day after we crossed it. Beautiful anyway.

Sometimes a little rock at the beach ist enough to display nature's beauty.

Lovely dense coastal forest at sunset.

Same forest, same time as above. Just shot from the other side.

Dark, calm waters can provide a perfect reflection.

I guess this is how the woods looked as dinosaurs roamed them.

For me, this scenery was actually quite perfect. No way to pay justice to it with this image.

Puffing up as a rival approaches.

Wonderful autumn setting with calssic wetland ingredients.

The early morning sun sets the water on fire, as a Kingfisher has a rest close to the surface.

Great contrasts at sunrise in Upper Austria's floodplains.

While having a break from the Red Deer rut at noon, I captured this one in Lower Austria.

These cute little fellows can be also quite aggressive every now and then.

Another memorable close encounter without the use of any camouflage.

Very well hidden. Both of us ;)

You can be quite sure, the bird is relaxed, when it starts cleaning itself.

Every now an then they can also be spotted higher up in the trees.

Without a doubt an extraordinary beautiful bird.

Peacefully sharing the wetlands with a Grey Heron as the sun comes up.

I'm happy about this shot, because it also shows the typical habitat of this aare pretty well.

Spreading the wings to take off.

The plumage color of subadult birds is less intense.

Returning to its branch after a successful hunt.
