    Poneke tracks and walks: Wellington

    Some lovely day and overnight hikes available within spitting distance of Wellington.

    Took my EP1 and 17mm out for the weekend - performed well but missed my kit zoom in a few situations. However the 2.8 performed admirably in the low light of dusk and inside the dense Kiwi bush.

    phigmov, very nice and it must have been a great hike! We've recently had another good hiking/backpacking thread here. We may have to start a new Genre forum soon if this keeps up.:biggrin: My favorites are #3 and #4 - really lovely. You did well.

    Thanks for the feedback BB - was a great trip but my muscles are sore. Being a desk-jockey doesn't really prepare you for climbing up the sorts of tracks only mountain goats would attempt !

    No, I'm sure it doesn't - but you did it and didn't get hurt.:thumbup: Now that I'm looking at these again, I find that your last one is really my favorite because the light, the deep color tones, the depth and view all worked out perfectly together to capture the feeling of the wide open space and the majesty of the mountains.

    Last night we watched a program about New Zealand on television. What a jewel of a country you live in. I look forward to more of your photographs.
