Our camera club had a ‘low light’ session last week.  The location chosen was the Wakapuaka cemetary, a place full of potential.  I think this cemetary gives its residents some of the best views one could hope for, high on a hillside overlooking Nelson Haven.  Trouble is after 16,000 people have been buried here, all the best spots are taken!

The challenge was to find some images that were a bit different.  The beautiful little Garin Chapel was my first target.

Yesterday morning I was up early, meeting a friend at the Samuels Rose Garden.  He’s a talented young photographer and had suggested that we get there at sunrise.  He was right: the light was great at that time of day.  The rose garden in located in the grounds of an historic home in Nelson, Broadgreen.

I got there first, before the sun was up.  The light was still very cold, but was great for bringing out the detail.  This rose was called “Clodagh McRedy”:
