Castle Hill, which is situated In the heart of North Canterbury, New Zealand, this Alpine region is one of my favourite places to photography the stars, as it is to many others. The formations of hundreds of weathered limestone tors that erupt from golden tussocky hills make for incredible subjects to photograph. A bortle 2 sky - on the edge of bortle 1, it doesn't get much better than this.
Named by Ngai Tahu Kura Tāwhiti (Maori tribe-our native people) or "treasure from afar" in reference to the kumara that was grown here, it's also an area of cultural and spiritual significance.
Just 30 Hours after this, it was a completely different place as snowstorm came through.
Sky was tracked with an ioptron skyguider pro on a Canon 5D MKIV and a 24mm f2.8 lens. 18x Vertical shots for the sky and 10x shots for the foreground, 28x shots total.
