[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is another photo I took of a sunrise over the Wairarapa area a few weeks ago.

I took it from the hills near Palmerston North. The air was still and cool, the developing fog was awesome to watch creeping slowly over and through the valleys. There were a few homes perched on hill tops, I have included one in this photo. Must be interesting for the inhabitants seeing all that fog around them - like being on an island surrounded by fog! Tfv.

Hi Martyn,
I like everything about this one,composition, DOF,POV,great moody shot,I thought it may be improved by cropping off the top bright sky,but no way, everthing balances perfect,well done.

Best regards!

Hi Martyn:
very beautiful picture.

Hi Martyn,
Amazing scene, I feel cold just looking at it! The thick layers of fog look awesome, swooping over the mountain tops and smothering everything in it's path. Great vantage point for this shot, the tones and colours here are fantastic. Definitely worth getting up early for, well captured.


Hello Martyn,
I love the layered effect and the color hue...misty air is beautiful. Wondeful shot. TFS

Fantastic Martyn, another beauty of the sunrise. The layers of hills, the fog, the warmth of the colors, the texture of the hills in the foreground ... just a great shot. Excellent job.

Superbe photo! La combinaison brume-soleil levant est du plus bel effet!

hello martyn

magic oment of this, the colors are sweet and natural
great great shoot

Hello Martyn,
A stunning early morning vista. The early morning colors appear like a tobacco filter was used. I have no suggestions on how to improve this photo as it appears flawless. Congratulations and well done...Danilo

I like the last one you posted of this scene - this is a cracker too.. Such stunning scenery and well rendered into a lovely photograph..


Hi Martyn
This is so good, I would happily have one of these in my portfolio. The mist and fog is superb, and the best way to capture this, is early light and a high POV. You have them 2 down to the wire, and thirdly is the presentation which is first rate here. Excellent Martyn.

Good morning Martyn!
What a fantastic scenery! Very well taken and composed with beautiful view at the hills and mountains. You captured lovely light and superb clouds hanging over the valleys. Artistic and very impressive shot. My compliments.
best regards

Hello Martyn,
Excelent sunrise-compo with a bit of mystical atmosphere tanks to the fog. Nice colours and lightmanagement.
I think that the sunrise and the sunset are the best times of the day for a photographer.

Hello Martyn
Just superb !
Thanks a lot !

Wow this is great. Really like the amosphere.


Awesome mood you caught here. All these browns create an excellent density and great view.
