Lake Matheson at Fox Glacier Updated as HDR to recover details

Glencomeragh – Carrick Camera Club Shoot

On Tuesday 14th June, Carrick Camera Club held an evening shoot at Glencomeragh, 10 minutes from Carrick On Suir, Co. Tipperary.

Lake Matheson Reflective Lakes Near Fox Glacier, New Zealand

Fox Glacier Reflective Lakes – Photo of the Week

This Vertical Landscape shot was taken near the village of Fox Glacier in New Zealand. This reflective lake is Lake Matheson less than 10 minutes west of Fox Glacier. The Lake walk takes about 75 minutes to do the full circuit. This is the end result… There are some spectacular colours to be had if you visit the lakes around sunset. I might upload the sunset shots from Lake Matheson on Flickr later in the week.
