Lunch with Alfie
A pause during our Hobbit Location Guidebook expedition with Alfie Speight and Glacier Southern Lakes Helicopters. It was just an amazing day, a "pinch me am I doing this" memory.
Merry Christmas to all my friends around the world. Thank you for sharing Middle-earth Aotearoa and embracing our land.

From The Top
The view from Takaka Hill towards Takaka and Collingwood.

On The Road
Driving to see Warwick & Suzie, Matthew said stop, photo. I'm glad we did.
This sunset on the West Coast of the South Island encapsulates what I love about New Zealand.
Spring Shower in the Maniatoto
The mountains, the clouds, the rocky outcrops, all combine to present a landscape like nowhere else in New Zealand.
Love this part of New Zealand. The Maniatoto is an absolute treasure and one of the best places in the country for landscapes that speak, in fact yell to be captured.
We stopped at the corner, the sun was in our eyes, squinting I tried to capture the moment. Gold.
