A week at school camp was a real blast and now I’m wading through all of those photos. The camp was for what we in New Zealand call “year 7 and 8” (about 12-13 age range). It’s almost of the end of the school year here and this will be the last major event/camp these guys will do before heading off to college (high-school). As you can imagine there were lots of late nights and early mornings.

I was there primarily to take photographs and just generally help. Mostly I was taking photos of the kids with their activities but I did manage to get a few landscape shots in as well.
I like the photo below as it captures some of the fun we had on a rare wet day in Nelson. The kids were riding go-karts down the hill and through the mud. By the way I used my special (expensive) rain-hood on my Canon 7D – a plastic bag!

Any comments welcomed; comment and I will follow you back!
