Wairau Valley in the northern region onf New Zealands South Island is a large wine making area, with many different vinyards dotted around the landscape. The windmills, are not used to create power, rather to keep the air moving at night when frosts threaten the vines, which still have grapes on them.
Shot in Wellington, I loved the way the light came through the windows in the wall, and into the dark passageway.
This is a staircase on the side of a 1970’s concrete building in Wellington, New Zealand. The whole building is a brilliant example of brutalist architecture.
I spent ages working on this image, trying to find the correct balance of shadow and light, and the right amount of detail within the shadow. I suspect it will be an image I return to again and again tweaking and changing, as my mood takes me.
