Aurora glow at meiklejohns jetty, queenstown! . a massive aurora was what we were hoping for the other night when we headed down to meiklejohns jetty, but we only managed to get a faint glow after hours of being food for the sandflies. it’s still great to catch the aurora no matter how big it is, but it got us thinking about how often plans fail in photography. we have less than 200 images on our profile. to get them, we took nearly 100,000 shots. out of the images on our profile, we only feel really satisfied with around 25 where we got exactly what we were planning for. this means that our planned shots fail most of the time that we head out and that’s ok. whether we get something or not we just love being out there and doing it! πŸ˜„ • • • • • #longexpoelite #longexposure_shots #amazing_longexpo #longexpo_addiction #longexposure #nature #earthpix #hubs_united #worldprime #newzealandguide #natgeospace #ig_nightphotography #tlpicks #ig_shotz_feb18 #special_shots #master_shots #superhubs @ericdamier @earthpix #wow_planet #spacewheel #naturegeography #newzealandvacations #igworldclub #splendid_shotz #destinationnz #royceblairphoto #earthfocus #artofvisuals #earthporm #awesomeglobe #master_gallery

Winter reflections at lake kirkpatrick, queenstown! . some incredible clouds and reflections on a cold winter night at lake kirkpatrick! this was taken after that magical storm that blanketed the entire area with fresh snow. the light from the rising moon was beginning to hit the peaks, lighting them up perfectly and the reflections were some of the best that we had seen out here! πŸ˜„πŸ‘Œ • • • • • #longexposure_shots @beautifuldestinations #beautifuldestinations @natgeotravel @earthfocus @earthofficial @nakedplanet @moodygrams #nature #tentree #newzealandguide #moodygrams #hubs_united #destinationnz #fantastic_earthpix #lonelyplanet #travelnewzealand #ig_shotz_feb18 #mainvision #earthpix #newzealandvacations #tentree #fantastic_earth #earthofficial #naturegeography #tourtheplanet #wildernessculture @wilderness_culture #outdoortones #modernoutdoors #awesomeearth #earthfocus #discovernature #earthcapture #tlpicks #awesomeglobe #awesome_earthpix

Gertrude saddle, fiordland np! . here is another one of the incredible view points from above the saddle! you can point the camera in any direction up here and easily find some pretty breath-taking compositions. even with a clear sky for sunset, the golden rays on the mountain, the mist and this epic little foreground definitely made up for it! πŸ˜„ • • • • • #natureonly #nature #ig_shotz_le #newzealandvacations #houseoftones #hubs_united #beautifuldestinations #newzealandguide #fantastic_earthpix #lonelyplanet #travelnewzealand #ig_shotz_feb18 #tlpicks #natgeotravel #destinationnz #jaw_dropping_shots #fantastic_earth #earthofficial #naturegeography #tourtheplanet #wildernessculture @ericdamier @so.shauna #splendid_shotz #awesome_photographers #awesomeearth #earthfocus #discovernature #earthcapture #earthporm #awesomeglobe #awesome_earthpix

Gertrude saddle, fiordland national park . this little calf destroyer leads to one of the best views around fiordland. from here you can see all the way down to milford sound and beyond to the tasman sea. most people do gertrude saddle as an easy half-day walk but the best option is to camp up at the saddle. once the sun starts to set and the tourists have left, you will have this incredible place all to yourself! πŸ˜„ • • • • • #longexposure_shots @beautifuldestinations #beautifuldestinations @natgeotravel @earthfocus @earthofficial @nakedplanet @moodygrams #nature #tentree #newzealandguide #moodygrams #hubs_united #destinationnz #fantastic_earthpix #lonelyplanet #travelnewzealand #ig_shotz_feb18 #mainvision #earthpix #newzealandvacations #tentree #fantastic_earth #earthofficial #naturegeography #tourtheplanet #wildernessculture @wilderness_culture #outdoortones #modernoutdoors #awesomeearth #earthfocus #discovernature #earthcapture #tlpicks #awesomeglobe #awesome_earthpix

Milford sound, fiordland national park . i think we finally have an image of the sound that we are happy with! πŸ˜„we have been wanting to combine these amazing mossy rocks with the famous low tide reflections and colourful high cloud since first visiting milford 2 years ago! to finally get the conditions we needed and get the composition we had been planning for so long was an awesome feeling. having said that, our favourite part of this image is stirling falls being dwarfed by the surrounding peaks in the distance! when you consider the falls are 151 metres high you start to get a good idea of the scale of this incredible place! 😳 • • • • • #longexposure_shots @beautifuldestinations #beautifuldestinations @natgeotravel @earthfocus @earthofficial @nakedplanet @moodygrams #nature #tentree #newzealandguide #moodygrams #hubs_united #destinationnz #fantastic_earthpix #lonelyplanet #travelnewzealand #ig_shotz_feb18 #mainvision #earthpix #newzealandvacations #fantastic_earth #earthofficial #naturegeography #tourtheplanet #wildernessculture @wilderness_culture #outdoortones #modernoutdoors #awesomeearth #earthfocus #discovernature #earthcapture #tlpicks #awesomeglobe #awesome_earthpix

Monkey creek in fiordland! πŸ˜„ . just got back late yesterday from an awesome few days down in fiordland! we got some really nice conditions and managed to get a few shots that we will be sharing next week! one of our favourite places to visit is down at monkey creek. the sky wasn’t doing too much and we thought this would be another good opportunity to try and frame the mountains with some beautiful beech trees. unfortunately we couldn’t get a tree trunk on either side of the frame but we could get the mountain sitting nicely between these two branches. the camera couldn’t handle the dynamic range of this scene in one frame so we had to blend in an shorter exposure for the mountain and the sky to get it to work! • • • • • #longexposure_shots @beautifuldestinations #beautifuldestinations @natgeotravel @earthfocus @earthofficial @nakedplanet @moodygrams #nature #tentree #newzealandguide #moodygrams #hubs_united #destinationnz #fantastic_earthpix #lonelyplanet #travelnewzealand #ig_shotz_feb18 #mainvision #earthpix #newzealandvacations #tentree #fantastic_earth #earthofficial #naturegeography #tourtheplanet #wildernessculture @wilderness_culture #outdoortones #modernoutdoors #awesomeearth #earthfocus #discovernature #earthcapture #tlpicks #awesomeglobe #awesome_earthpix

Through the trees, lake mackenzie, fiordland np! . once you arrive at mackenzie hut, the only thing to do is head out and explore the lake! there is a track that leads to a place called split rock, which is literally just…a split rock, but on the way you will pass the campsite and get access to this little beach. it’s surrounded by some beautiful beech forest and we were pretty convinced that we could find a nice way to frame emily peak. although it was mid-afternoon and the light was less than ideal, we loved the way these trees perfectly framed that epic backdrop and just had to grab a shot! πŸ˜„ • • • • • #natureonly #nature #ig_shotz_le #newzealandvacations #houseoftones #hubs_united #beautifuldestinations #newzealandguide #fantastic_earthpix #lonelyplanet #travelnewzealand #ig_shotz_feb18 #tlpicks #natgeotravel #destinationnz #jaw_dropping_shots #fantastic_earth #earthofficial #naturegeography #tourtheplanet #wildernessculture @ericdamier @so.shauna #splendid_shotz #awesome_photographers #awesomeearth #earthfocus #discovernature #earthcapture #earthporm #awesomeglobe #awesome_earthpix

Fiery sunrise at the church! . this will be our last shot of this incredible place for a while. we were lucky to get some great conditions while we were there, both day and night, and it is unlikely we will be able to top them any time soon! in other news, we just got back from a quick overnight trip to milford today after chasing some delicious high cloud for sunset. we have tried for a colourful sky there on so many occasions and this time it finally delivered. we probably won’t be able to post much this week as we will be spending a few days around fiordland national park to get some new shots to show you guys! 😊 • • • • • #natureonly #nature #ig_shotz_le #newzealandvacations #houseoftones #hubs_united #beautifuldestinations #newzealandguide #fantastic_earthpix #lonelyplanet #travelnewzealand #ig_shotz_feb18 #tlpicks #natgeotravel #destinationnz #jaw_dropping_shots #fantastic_earth #earthofficial #naturegeography #tourtheplanet #wildernessculture @ericdamier @so.shauna #splendid_shotz #awesome_photographers #awesomeearth #earthfocus #discovernature #earthcapture #earthporm #awesomeglobe #awesome_earthpix

Zermatt, switzerland! what is the best place that you guys have travelled to? . getting travel ideas off instagram is a bit of a double edged sword, it’s easy to see how epic some places are, but there are more spots out there than you could ever possibly visit. it makes committing to a location pretty difficult knowing how many other cool spots you will be giving up. we want to hear from you guys about the absolute best paces you have visited for photography, it can be the classics like iceland, norway, patagonia etc but if you have an obscure spot you have come across on your travels we would love to hear about that too, if you don’t mind sharing of course πŸ˜‰! • • • • • #longexposure_shots @beautifuldestinations #beautifuldestinations @natgeotravel @earthfocus @earthofficial @nakedplanet @moodygrams #nature #tentree #switzerland_vacations #moodygrams #hubs_united #inlovewithswitzerland #fantastic_earthpix #lonelyplanet #travelnewzealand #ig_shotz_jan18 #mainvision #earthpix #visitswitzerland #tentree #fantastic_earth #earthofficial #naturegeography #tourtheplanet #wildernessculture @wilderness_culture #outdoortones #modernoutdoors #awesomeearth #earthfocus #discovernature #earthcapture #tlpicks #awesomeglobe #awesome_earthpix

Late night reflections at lake marian! . before heading off to the routeburn we took the opportunity to tick another awesome fiordland location off the list by camping out at lake marian! we have been here once before but the water level was so high that the lake was mostly inaccessible but this time it was perfect. after getting a little lost in the woods, which is pretty standard for this track, we arrived in the later afternoon to perfectly clear skies. we were blown away by how incredibly dark it is out here, we had to median stack around 10 frames to try and reduce the noise enough for the image to be usable. apart from gertrude saddle, this would have to be one of the better short walks in the park! πŸ˜„πŸ‘Œ . gear: @nikonnz d810, @sigmaphoto 20mm • • • • • #space #nature #wonderlustnewzealand #igworld_global #houseoftones #moodygrams #newzealandvacations #newzealandguide #fantastic_earthpix #lonelyplanet #tlpicks #ig_shotz_jan18 #discoverearth #travelnewzealand #tourtheplanet #jaw_dropping_shots #fantastic_earth #earthofficial #naturegeography #moodygrams #wildernessculture @ericdamier @so.shauna #theglobewanderer #destinationnz #awesomeearth #earthfocus #discovernature #earthcapture #roycebairphoto #awesomeglobe #awesome_earthpix

Mclean falls.. one of our favourite spots to visit when we are down in the catlins! πŸ˜„ . this was actually a difficult shot to get in the end because we had to use our 20mm lens to fit everything in and it can’t take a filter, so we had to wait for the light to drop enough from passing cloud to get the required shutter speed. also, the swirls don’t always happen and we felt we needed them to get the shot we wanted so we took what felt like a memory card worth of shots to get the right amount of movement. sometimes the simple shots can be the biggest pain to get but we are happy with how it came out in the end! 😊 . gear: @nikonnz d810 & @sigmaphoto 20mm • • • • #longexpoelite #longexposure_shots #ig_shotz_le #longexpo_addiction #igworld_global #houseoftones #hubs_united #nzmustdo #newzealandguide #earth #nakedplanet @ericdamier @so.shauna @earth pix @earth #special_shots #earthofficial #jaw_dropping_shots #tourtheplanet #naturegeography #newzealandvacations #wildernessculture #splendid_shotz #destinationnz #awesomeearth #earthfocus #discovernature #earthporm #awesomeglobe #awesome_earthpix

Isthmus peak, wanaka... the road less travelled! . seems fitting when talking about isthmus peak, the socially awkward second cousin of the super popular roy's peak, but old isthmus has as much to offer in terms of views and leg pain as the more popular member of the family. what we enjoy most about this track, apart from the lack of huge crowds, is the fact that you get stellar views of both lake wanaka and lake hawea πŸ˜„πŸ‘Œ. if you only have time for one i would say do roy's, but if you can do both or can't handle the crowds then isthmus is well worth destroying your calves for 😁 • • • • @beautifuldestinations #beautifuldestinations @natgeotravel @earthfocus @earthofficial @nakedplanet @moodygrams #nature #tentree #newzealandvacations #moodygrams #hubs_united #newzealandguide #fantastic_earthpix #lonelyplanet #travelnewzealand #ig_shotz_jan18 #mainvision #earthpix #destinationnz #ig_newzealand #fantastic_earth #earthofficial #naturegeography #tourtheplanet #wildernessculture @wilderness_culture #watchthisinstagood #awesome_photographers #awesomeearth #earthfocus #discovernature #earthcapture #tlpicks #awesomeglobe #awesome_earthpix

Lenticular clouds over arrowtowns hills πŸ€“ . we were cruising around the hills of arrowtown on friday afternoon. when we started hiking the clouds were looking fairly average and we didn’t think sunset would be anything super special but to say the prospects improved quickly would be a massive understatement! next thing we knew some huge lenticular clouds were forming all over the place, with a massive gap on the horizon, right around sunset. unfortunately we weren’t in position we wanted to be in so we had to quickly compose something while the light was at its best! these formations are so rare and epic to see, in the 2 years we have been here we have managed to see them only a handful of times! 🧐 • • • • • #natureonly #nature #ig_shotz_le #newzealandvacations #houseoftones #hubs_united #nature_perfection #newzealandguide #fantastic_earthpix #lonelyplanet #travelnewzealand #ig_shotz_jan18 #tlpicks #natgeotravel #destinationnz #jaw_dropping_shots #fantastic_earth #earthofficial #naturegeography #tourtheplanet #wildernessculture @ericdamier @so.shauna #splendid_shotz #awesome_photographers #awesomeearth #earthfocus #discovernature #earthcapture #earthporm #awesomeglobe #awesome_earthpix
