Ferry in Wellington Harbour

The Interislander is one of two ferry companies between New Zealand’s north and south islands. Seen here coming into Wellington harbour (North Island). I used a long 300mm lens here to create the compression of perspective. In the background behind the ferry is Wellington Airport. The runway is 2081 metres long. On the nearside is Evans Bay and behind the runway is the Cook Straight. To get this view I was stood at the top of a hill in Newslands, a suburb next to Johnsonville. This was my first attempt at this concept. It’s a little blurry and I do hope to retake it in the future with a longer lens. A plane landing or taking off in the background would be ideal if I can time it right.
