In mid-winter, we traveled down the interminable Pipiriki Road to the muddy Whanganui River. On the return trip, we arrived back at the road saddle, where this stunning landscape presented itself. Mount Ruapehu (2,797m) is the highest hill in the North Island, presidin...

New Year’s Eve was biting at my heels. Queenstown was the last place I wanted to be on December 31st. The Hills beckoned beyond the tinsel town, so I boarded the Skyline gondola for my escapade.

Once past the Skyline Restaurant, punching through the thin veneer of amu...

Cape Farewell is the northern-most point of the South Island of New Zealand. This breath-taking landmark was discovered by Abel Tasman in 1642 and named by Captain Cook when he departed New Zealand in 1770.

Located on the east coast of New Zealand's South Island, the Moeraki Boulders are a tourist magnet, particularly at sunrise. Visit during the warmer months of summer, and you will be jostling in a crowd. But in winter you can sleep in til 6am, and still be first on the...

The iconic Boat Shed Cafe cantilevers over the waters of Nelson Haven. Using buildings within landscape photos does not follow the purist ethic, but makes for interesting compositions.
