Tropical Getaway – Part 12

We are slowly getting to the tail end of our trip, but by no means the end of the photos! Out next stop was Mount Hypipamee National Park. There is a crater, waterfalls and cascades. We also stopped at Lake Eacham on the way in. Honestly not that exciting apart from the fact that they…

On a recent weekend getaway to country Victoria, we decided to stop at a little place called Fern Tree Gully, as there are some waterfalls there. This is near Raglan in the Mount Buangor State Park. It looked as if it really has not had many visitors in quite a while, very overgrown and the…

Wanaka – Day 9 – Re-Post

After…

Our New Zealand Adventure – Day 19

We spent the morning wandering around the Lakefront and then had a fantastic breakfast. After breakfast we went from Taupo, we drove back towards Napier and finally found Waipunga Falls, an amazing sight from the car park, but no way to safely get down. We missed this and another river on our way to Napier…

Our New Zealand Adventure – Day 17

In the early morning light, while it was still cool and dewy we visited the Dugald MacKenzie Rose Garden, armed with our macro lenses and light rings, we took off for some still life goodness, I had not shot any real flowers in days 🙂 We left Palmerston North and drove through various farmland, mostly…
