I stood by the edge of Lake Wanaka, watching the winds carry heavy storm clouds in from the west. Because of the speed of those winds, no weather ever lasts very long in New Zealand; if you don’t like the clouds you’ve been dealt, simply wait a little. I camped out in the car as sleet dumped, and then a little light on the horizon suggested that the storm was lifting – an for a brief moment, the flanks of Mt. Alta behind were lit as sun reflected off it through the veil of cloud that still hung over the lake. The distant shore benefitted somewhat from this light, but that single dark island remained shrouded. MT


About the prints
Prints are made by Printmaster Wesley Wong of Giclee Art using our proprietary Ultraprint process, which delivers extremely high real resolutions – up to 720 pixels per inch, or four times that of an iPad’s Retina display, a wide gamut, and very smooth tonal transitions. We print on either Canson Infinity Platin Fiber Rag baryta or Permajet Portrait White depending on the subject matter and size using Epson Ultrachrome archival-grade inks.
