Every week when we put the Dunedin Light weekly reports together I am blown away by the vibrancy of the colours in the images from this city. From the vivid blues and oranges of a dawn breaking over the entrance to the Otago Harbour (above) to the pastel hues on a late evening surf session, we have an impressive spectrum in each edition.
That feeling has become even more intense as we begin to put together our first Dunedin Light photography book celebrating a year of changing seasons, beachscapes, surf and people.
We're in the middle of production right now of this beautiful coffee-table book that will capture the essence of our surf beaches, Dunedin's amazing light and the people who explore our stunning coastline.
All the images are from the Dunedin Light project, including a bunch that nobody has seen yet. We're aiming to have the book on sale in October and available from all good bookstores ... and at www.dunedinlight.com.
Keep an eye out for us and if you have any favourite images you'd like to see included in the book jump on to our Facebook page here or email us here and let us know. We're building this book for you, so feel free to let us know what you'd like to see in it.
In between photo editing for the book this week I managed to spend some time with Anja and Tristan – two of Dunedin's most inspirational mountain bikers. These two are about to embark on an adventure across North America's Rocky Mountains. Their TransRockies journey will take them on a 400km off-road route through the high Canadian Rockies that will include loads of singletrack and the biggest mountains as they travel from Fernie, BC, to Canmore, Alberta, over seven days. It's an epic adventure ...
If you feel inspired to have your own adventure jump into R&R Sport tomorrow and take advantage of their Midwinter One Day Sale. We know we'll be there.
See you at the beach ...
