  1. Beautiful images…NZ just jumped to the top of my bucketlist!

  2. These images are amazing. Cant decide which one is my favourite. Each image is equally good as the other. But I love the night sky images a lot. I had always wanted to go to Iceland and shoot the Northern Lights. If not Iceland, New Zealand is also a great destination to shoot some real nice night sky.

  3. These are really stunning and now you’ve got me dreaming of New Zealand. I’d love to give my camera a workout in some of these spots

    Love great photos!

    Even though it is essentially on my doorstep, I’ve still never made it to NZ (I’m terrible, I know)!

  5. I’m swooning! Feel like going back to NZ and taking many such shots for myself 🙂

  6. These are such spectacular shots, that my heart skipped a few beats as I watched in awe at the beauty of New Zealand.These photos have ensnared me and made me fall madly in love with New Zealand.

  7. Amazing photo collections! Now I know which is the best part/angle to capture.

  8. What a stunning collection! To be honest, everywhere in New Zealand looks Instagram worthy to me, its a gorgeous country.

    Thanks for sharing. These wonderful photo’s have made me want to bring my plans forward to visit New Zealand! I particularly love the lake reflection shots. Just looking at these over breakfast had given me a wonderful sense of calm.

  12. Ahh this made me miss NZ so much! My first backpacking trip ever was in the south island and I just fell in love. Abel Tasman and Tekapo are unmissable!
