I was trying my best to reach Rotorua before sunset, in the end I didn't manage to capture the sunset. After arriving at the lake, I am a bit disappointed, but tried to make use of the remaining light.
I took a few photos before settling here for the final long exposure shot - ~4min. Rarely do I expose for this long because usually I have already gotten the shot I need before it turned this dark. For someone who lives in the tropics, it's really cold while waiting for that four long minutes too.
I'm glad that I eventually got this shot at the end of the day at the lake.

A beginner in photography? Really? I don't believe you a word:) You have some great pictures in here, and on this one you squeeze out what you can get by a well chosen exposure time and a good composition too. The peaceful atmosphere is also nice.

Either I don't believe a word ... you know about photography (you can't be a beginner!) And much to make this picture so spectacular ... soft colors, cold and a magical atmosphere as they make a beautiful picture...
Have a nice week and I hope to see more pictures from you
