Totara Park and then through Auckland's Botanic Gardens. Today's shot is looking across one of the lakes in the botanic gardens. The cheat, of there is one, is that a polarizing filter has been used to give a bit more detail to the clouds and perhaps a little more saturation to the greens.
Using the filter cuts out quite a bit of light as you may appreciate from the camera settings below. It was quite a bright day, yet at f4 the shutter speed was only 1/100. The sun, incidentally, was over to my right.
Hand held, 50mm lens, f4, 1/100second, ISO 200
