Interesting subject Hunter 270'

If you follow this form of art you could possibly make a living out of it. I wish now that I had taken many more photos than I did all those years living in the mountains. The photography that fascinates me now would be to capture the inbabitants of our high Alpine country. A old man when I met him Jack Dool made an art form of it. I remember he had a camera with a set of bellows???. and he had thousands of shots of Alpine plants, animals, and birds.
Some I remember.
Dactylantus
mountain daisy
Red Snowberry
White snowberry
Speargrass
Hebes of a thousand types
Mosses, lichens. Again in the hundreds.
Old Jack spent many years photographing the Kaimanawa wild horses and one of his photos graces the cover of the book Wild horses of NZ. There are of course deer, thar, goats, chammy and other. Slip a rifle on your back and you can keep the freezer full at the same time.
Native birds are a great camera study, though there are not the birds now that there was in the Seventies. You never needed a alarm clock to get you up for a morning shot in those days. Hard to imagine now that Captain Cooks crew begged him to take the ship further from shore because the bird song was driving them mad. A few minutes off the Desert Road anywhere and you would fill a scrapbook.Image
