Sample Images from New Zealand: A Photographer's Guide
Bay of Islands aerial - on a fine, clear day a flight over the Bay of Islands is a great way to see and photograph some spectacular scenery.
Rotorua Pohutu - Pohutu Geyser is the main attraction at Whakarewarewa. The geyser fires up every 20 minutes or so and can be photographed without the distraction of any man-made inclusions. It may take a few "performances" before you locate the best camera spots and composition.
Moira Gate robin - expect a small robin to keep you company on the Moira Gate track. Stand still long enough and the fearless little bird will pick tiny insects off your boots and even land on your tripod.
Lake Matheson - the splendid reflections at Lake Matheson may be popular photo clichés but they are far too attractive to overlook. The circuit walk takes a comfortable hour and is one of those 'must-do' aspects of New Zealand.
Milford Sound sunset - a once in a lifetime shot that serves to remind all landscape photographers to never give up. After waiting for an hour and battling the sand flies with all hope virtually abandoned for a successful sunset, the clouds at the entrance to Milford Sound opened for just 30 seconds to allow the setting sun to strike through.
