to see half of Rome it will take at least one year...
even in my town some building have more than 900 years... and are still working... offices... universities... convents... and of course churchs and cathedrals

I was married in a country church on the hills... rebuilt many times... since the collapse of the west in the V century.... but even today you can recognize the roman structure...
her organ was designed in the 1600... still works...

Thanks guys... a couple of night shots from the same church. Lake Tekapo is in the Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve, presently the only dark sky reserve in the Southern Hemisphere (though I'm aware of a couple of regions in Australia aiming to create similar reserves soon).

Blue hour with the Southern Cross and pointers visible early above the church


More stars joining the party


High cloud intermingling with the milky way. A half moon was rising on the horizon. (I need to remember to keep the condensation off my lens as the nights cool [blue halos around the brighter stars]... not used to needing to do that in the tropics)

Home from my south to north trip through the centre of Australia. Started processing pics to share, but thought I'd best share what's left from my New Zealand trip.
The most photographed tree to be appear on Instagram lives in a lake in Wanaka. So I visited the tree (along with about 400 other photographers *sigh*) for a fall sunrise.
When I saw the lineup of tripods along the shore and people with their waders on standing in waist deep water I almost went home to bed. But instead decided to change out my usual wide angle lens for a telephoto and headed up to the end of the lake where it wasn't as busy and where I could sneak a clear angle to the tree. I started with a long exposure at first light that accentuated the pinks in the sky...



Then as the sun rose, more people hopped in the water, so I shuffled my angle a bit, shortened the exposure and when mother nature sent lovely complementary fall colours through the clouds and reflections in the small waves, I thanked her that I still had a clear view


Then more people waded into the lake and stole my view, so I went back in the afternoon to get a wide-angle view... still not the preferred angle back to the snow covered mountains, but I can happily say I've ticked off "that Wanaka tree" from the list of iconic photos list. A short exposure for the light and a longer exposure to smooth the water and focus the eye on the tree itself.

Gorgeous photos Trace!

What are the birds in the tree on the first two photos?
