I think I have found my new photo taking place

Hello all,

We have recently moved from Australia to NZ. I am slowly working my way through my Australia images as we traveled Western Australia, and I am posting them in the gallery. But since moving to NZ, things have been pretty busy with us settling in, but yesterday was first chance we have had to have a look around. So I dusted off my camera, and we went for a drive. Less than a couple of hours down the road, we found this. I know they are a rough and ready, and nothing special, but I am pretty excited about it.

I am looking forward to getting back out there. I guess this is a bit of a heads up of what will be posted in the gallery from myself in the near future.


Armed with a K3, some M, A, FA, DA, and star lens. With an eye open for "just one more lens".

Australia and new Zealand have such different geographical points of beauty but for mountains the spine of the southern alps beats the great dividing range in my humble opinion, and just take a while one day to stop on some of the wild beachs of the west coast and take stills but also times exposures and icm. First shot reminds me of upper Waitaki river as I am Otago man through and through. BTW nothing special is not a word I would use regarding the southern alps but I am biased, enjoy your trekking.

New Zealand has one big issue for me, the journey to get there!
It's a fantastic place to photograph, i found some great spots along the forgotten highway on North Island, but these were then completely outclassed by South Island's Fjordland Park.
