North and South, East and West.
From the ocean to the mountains, from coast to coast. Just a few photos of the great outdoors of NZ where I love to visit with my camera.
Lets start at the Southern Alps which is in the rugged mountain range that spans from from North to South of the South Island. Although climbing mountains is not my thing I did struggle up to the Tasman Glacier viewpoint – and saw ICEBERGS.
Moving westwards towards Arthurs Pass is this stunning landscape.
Venturing a little further North on an inland road we stopped over at Iveagh Bay at Lake Brunner
Heading to the top West corner of the South Island is Karamea – which also provides a perfect opportunity for a West Coast sunset.
Further down the coast is Punakaiki, famous for its blowholes and rugged beaches
Time for an overnight at Fox River to meet friends and eat pancakes (what else) before heading East through the Kaikoura mountains and onto the East coast.
Finally we headed back up North to the Marlborough Sounds and over the top to French Pass at the top of the South Island where Pelorus Jack once roamed the sea.
Home again to another silvery moon and to hunker down at home for the winter months. The great outdoors can wait a while until the weather warms up again.
For Sunday Stills June 27
better late than never.
