PHOTOS: Summer in New Zealand from different angles

We’re certainly having a summer full of different weather extremes and many of you have captured some spectacular images lately and sent them in to us.

We’ve uploaded over a dozen new photos today alone.

See below for some of these images.

It’s really easy to upload your own weather photos – use this simple link here to upload them.

Some Photo tips:

  • Rather than just taking a sunrise or sunset image try including something different in the image.  Perhaps a strange looking tree…a boat on the beach….an animal nearby, or perhaps people.
  • Photos are always more interesting when there’s something different in them… if you’re taking a photo of clouds try and get a bird in it, or a plane.  Or a good mix of blue sky.
  • If you’re taking photos of beaches try putting the camera closer to the ground when you take them… to bring the sand or waves into life a bit more. 
  • Best of all – experiment!  Try new and unusual ways of taking photos.  Take photos between branches or down low near the grass.

Hi Phil & Weather Watch,

Great summer photographs and thank you to the Weather Watch readership for sending in their pics, I have enjoyed looking at all of them in the gallery.

I was abit tired last evening to add abit more information when I uploaded the kid with jandals on beach pic, so I’ll do it now *smiles*.
