🌸cherry blossom heaven🌸. the awanui cherry trees are in full force right now across @hamiltonwaikato and i’m in seventh heaven finding opportunities to go out and capture them. tonight there was so much lovely colour at dusk that the sky almost took on the exact hues of the cherry blossoms. it was a vision in pink and purple to die for 💜💕💜💕

Feel the wind in your hair. this past weekend i visited one of nz’s remote coastal spots, castlepoint. it’s incredibly beautiful in a windswept and wild kinda way. i dragged the family for a walk up castle rock, an imposing cliff face that towers high above the area. it wasn’t anywhere near as difficult as it looks and my boys were super proud of themselves for making it to the top. i was under strict instructions not to get any close than this to the cliff edge for a photo - it may look like that rock joins up but there is actually a massive bay between the two and a hundred foot drop, i could even see a seal swimming far below and far off in the distance you can make out the remarkable castlepoint lighthouse standing tall too!

Mirrored mountains. quietly perched beside a mountain tarn reflecting the peaks in aoraki mount cook national park was nothing short of perfection. i remember feeling just so thankful to be there right at that very moment looking out upon the immense scale and grandeur of peaks thousands of feet high and i’m pretty sure it actually brought a tear to my eye. are you equally moved by being in the mountains??

Classic new zealand. grassy fields filled with cows and sheep lead to rolling hills and towering snow capped mountains. it’s exactly how i imagine rural nz when i close my eyes so when i came upon this scene bathed in early golden light needless to say i was absolutely captivated 😍 .

Angels and rainbows. nz has some mega cool waterfalls and last weekend i got to explore 3 waterfalls in just one weekend with my photography buddies @laurie_winter and @a.d.f.photography. i reckon adventures are always more fun when shared with friends and these two so cool to go on missions with! what fun adventures are you up to this weekend?!

When the planets align. there are certain times of the year in nz when everything can line up perfectly for astro conditions starting with an early sunset in winter so it’s dark by 6pm. the next big hurdle to overcome is clear skies and calm conditions which is never a guarantee. but on this night it all happened 😱 and as an added bonus 3 planets also aligned in the sky - jupiter (top left) saturn (just left of the milky way) and mars which appeared as a red star just above the horizon around 10pm. i’ve never felt so ‘as one with the universe’ as i did gazing up that night! if you haven’t yet, do check out my beginners guide to astro for a few useful tips if you’re keen to capture the night sky. link in bio ➡️➡️➡️

A mystical mist upon the land. the morning i climbed to the summit of kakepuku for sunrise was perfectly still and clear, and upon reaching the summit the magical sight of the waikato plains appeared before me clothed in a sheer garment of fog. what a beautiful sight it was to see!

Always look behind you! chasing colour at sunset generally means aiming your camera in the direction of the sun and waiting and hoping. but often the loveliest colour can be caught in the ‘reverse sunset’, the colours that light up on the horizon in the opposite direction. this particular evening at nz’s mount maunganui proved just this point, it was also the clearest i’ve ever seen it, with both white island and whale island clearly visible from miles away! .

Hooker river vista. the views of mount cook just get better and better the closer you get to the mountain along the h****r valley track and i just couldn’t go past this view of the river as it meandered through the valley framing the epic peak of aoraki mount cook behind a u-shaped valley. i’m not sure how you’re ever meant to tear yourself away from a view like this! .

💜💕dawn hues to die for 💕💜. i can’t remember many occasions where the entire sky turned pink and purple just as dawn approached, and the vibrancy of the white snow capped mountain range packed a huge punch in contrast to that crazy beautiful sky. it was the best kinda morning this mountain mad gal could have asked for!

Waterfalls that make you go wow 😱 here in nz!we have an abundance of beautiful waterfalls and i’m off to revisit a few faves and explore some new one this weekend while my great buddy @laurie_winter is in town. the weather is not looking terribly conducive for waterfall photography (very windy and clear) but the road trip and adventure will be just as fun. stay tuned for stories along the way.....!

Dropping in for the night 🙌🏻. can you imagine a more epic spot to stay a night than at tasman saddle hut at the head of the tasman glacier on mount cook 2,300 metres up? you can walk in here apparently which takes a couple of days (ah....stuff that!) or be dropped in by heli (now that sounds more like my cuppa tea!). it was so cool to do an unexpected flyby on my recent @mtcookskiplanesandhelis flight and i must admit i googled how to go and stay there as soon as i was back on the ground... dreams are free!!!
