RNZAF Airtrainer  

First shot, not exactly well focused but quite dramatic. This is Red 2, a member of the RNZAF Red Checkers aerobatic team hitting the prop wash of the preceding aircraft whilst on *very* short finals. He was maintaining good separation, I think it was just plain bad luck!

He or she did all the right things, you can see from the deflection of the nose wheel that he has plenty of right rudder applied to try and pick up the wing. The next few photos in the sequence shows his tail plane even closer to the runway, then climbing away safely, An awesome display of flying!

Cathedral and Chalice - one of the few photos that I have sold, taken on my old Nikon 5700 and printed as a giclee (canvas).

Cathedral and Chalice
Bridge of Rememberance, Christchurch, New Zealand  



I like the bridges in Christchurch, and the way they are lit at night. It really is a beautiful city. This is the bridge of Remembrance on Cashel Street.

  Kaiapoi Information centre

This is the same George Troup-designed former railway station now used as the Kaiapoi Information centre.

I'm proud to say that this building wouldn't exist if it wasn't for my intervention. I wasn't involved in the restoration, the people that did it made a remarkable job.

Lake Camp, about 200 metres away from Lake Clearwater. These used to be known as Lake Tripp and Howard Lake for some reason.

Here's Jb1236 belting through Hornby at a decent rate of knots, on a frosty August morning. It sounded even better! I must edit the chimney out and clean this image up, one day.

This was taken from a Helicopter, about 500 feet over Mount Cass looking to the North West. Hard to see in this small version, but there are some nice lighting effects on the valley floors.
