Sunset, Kaikoura New Zealand | Free iPad Wallpaper

Red sunset clouds over the Kaikoura Coast and Seaward Kaikouras,  South Island New Zealand. By New Zealand Photographer Todd Sisson.

Thanks to the globally connected economy, I am now able to defer this week's Wednesday Wallpaper to Thursday on the basis that it is still Wednesday somewhere in the Northern Hemisphere :-)

If you are wanting to download this image as a desktop or iPad wallpaper,  you will need to grab the large version from this link:  [free iPad wallpaper] Password = freewallpaper

This photo of sunset over the Kaikoura coastline was made a couple of year's back on a very photogenic trip to Kaikoura, on the east coast of New Zealand's South Island.

For many more photos of beautiful New Zealand landscapes head on over to our website.

Cheers - Todd

Tech Wreckage: f/16, 2.5" ISO 100.  I made this on a Canon 5d mkii (I'd buy the 5d mkiii these days) and a 17-40mm f/4 zoom with a Marumi DHG Super Circular Polarizer and Singh ray 3 stop grad filter.

The 17-40mm is a fantastic (and I believe under-rated) lens. It is light to carry and has a terrific focal range for landscape.  Yes it has more distortion than a Nine Inch Nails concert but who notices it for this kind of image (it's had no corrections applied).  Did I mention that it is a bargain too - it's on sale right now at B&H, Adorama and of course Amazon.....
