Wine, Cheese, & Raglan – Collabor:8

The weekend before Easter, Hannah’s parents came up to Auckland to visit, and we thought we would take them to Raglan. The reasons being, our apartment is not very big (and therefore not very hospitable), and the fact that none of us had ever been there before.

I like this photo because it captures the moment in a number of ways. Wine, cheese, books, with views of the beach, and overlooking some native bush. The place where we stayed was perfectly set against the scenery and you could not help but relax. It was a spare of the moment photo as evidence by its one flaw.. a dirty great big chair stopping a complete view of the beach :-).

Oh well… still, looking at this just makes me want to go back there.

Shutter: 1/200, f/4.5, ISO 100, focal length 36mm on 18-55mm lens. Cross processed in Aperture.

    I like the photogragh the way it is Jared, it captures the table and its contents and still sneaks in a view of the beach behind, so you captured it all really. And I’m thinking if Oyster Bay wines saw this, they may want it for a postcard!

      Thanks, although they would probably have to photoshop out the Stoneleigh wine to use it 🙂

    Nice one Jared. Ah paradise – if it wasn’t for the insects
