These photos from Motuara Island are from a weekend where Sarah and I explored New Zealand’s Queen Charlotte Sound by air, sea and land. Historically, Motuara Island is the location where, in 1770, Captain James Cook and his officers raised the British flag and claimed New Zealand for the use of the British Empire. Today, Motuara Island is a bird sanctuary.

After shooting these photos, I discovered that I had completely forgot to remove the 85B filter I had on my lens. An 85B filter is a warming filter used for color correction when shooting tungsten film in daylight. I had shot a roll of Lomography Cine400 film on the boat ride to the island and it never occured to me to remove the filter when I loaded a roll of daylight film into the camera. As a result, these photos have a lovely warm tone to them.
