SUCH JOY IN PHOTOGRAPHY, SUCH JOY TO SHARE!
The month of May has been very fulfilling and eventful so far, with the first weekend spent hiking over Tongariro Crossing with ex-South Island couple/and now good friends Jerry and Mimi and many others, and now the 2nd weekend with Jason and Eva for their beautiful wedding photos in South Island.
Knowing by heart how beautiful South Island is I decided to throw into it a bit more. So I dashed to the camera shop the night before the photoshoot and purchased Cannon’s stunner zoom lens 70-200mm F2.8 IS II. Be it a bad habit, that’s me. Everytime I crave for something I really would want to get it right away, especially for photography equipments. T.T And I really wish I had bought it sooner, because after this South Island trip I felt it has all already been paid off!! The convenience of being able to zoom in and out and its capability of delivering razor sharp image really made my location shooting job so much easier!
Besides, sometimes life gives us a little bit more. Today I had the single most amazing flight experience ever! Managed to swap to a window seat and thanks to this new lens addition, I was able to capture some aerial shots over Mt Cook national park. Seriously, how much would you pay for to see such amazing views at such perfect time!? The gentleman sitting on the other side of the plane was so jealous that he literally came over to take photos from my window. “You are luck to be sitting on the right side”, he said. LOL..When the golden sunset struck the submit of the snow mountains I felt my heart was lifted. Maybe it’s just me but I am truly amazed by how much WOW factor our world’s creations bring us. Its beauty is everchanging; its glory is everylasting. Such joy in photography, such joy to share! Thank you New Zealand. Thank you God.
