Port Nelson - 港

Nelson, New Zealand

The port Nelson from Atawhai in the early morning.


  1. Beautiful morning light Ben. The subject is interesting and I like the dramatic landscape shrouded in the background atmosphere.

  2. Thanks, Gavin.
    The effect of the telephoto lens gives this compacted feel of subject and back ground. In this case, that is very desirable and gives a good feel to the composition.

  3. Beautiful!
    Reminds me of a scene from an Italian movie, Nanni Moretti's "Caro Diario" (Dear Diary), which is rich with great photography. One scene, at an island port, shows a large white ship slowly gliding into port, almost like in your photo. Another film with great photography scenes from a container port is Aki Kaurismäki's "The Man Without a Past".
