    The one with water and boats in the foreground is from Mt Victoria in Devonport, the city buildings are 4 km from that position.

The 2 shots took 4 hours to complete, the weather way constantly changing with rain coming and going.

    For the first time (for me) I had the 5x12 setup at Devonport and someone came along and asked me if it was a Hasselblad........I felt quite privileged to be asked that question as I was beginning to think it was a myth!

    The 2 photos I shot the previous year with different equipment and the results were quite disappointing. That led to the purchase of the 5x12 which I'm now happy to say worked out just fine.

    Thanks Clayton. I'm going to file those locations aside in my memory banks for my next visit to Auckland.

    I used to live in the old fire station just around the corner of Mt Victoria (more like a hill in size) - Mt Eden has potentially seen the most amount of digital cameras as any part of New Zealand - nice to see some big film get its way up there again

    Each mountain can be seen in the other shot ... heh - I guess Iamb somewhere in there too (;

    Make sure you PM us if you ever get round here ... (that goes to any APUG user)

    Nick makes a good point, once you get on top of one of the hills you can see the others.........there's 40+ extinct volcanos in the Auckland area and they all have great views. Most of them have easy access to the top which is why you find busloads of tourists and digicams up there. Mt Eden is close to the city, has views in every direction and the volcano cone interior is quite spectacular.

    No I'm not that mean........I explained it was quite a bit bigger than a blad and much the same as the original cameras from a century and a half ago.
