NEW ZEALAND - VENTURE SOUTH
New Zealand’s South Island is known for its picturesque landscapes, breathtaking high peak alps and ever-changing weather. It is a world heritage for its untouched wilderness, clear night skies and adventure tourism. After traveling through the North Island, it was time for me to jump south.
These images are highlights of a two month’s journey through the South Island of New Zealand. I traveled from the north region all the way to the austral region at Stirling Point, the closest coast to the South Pole. Living in my van, I was able to drive coast to coast without haste, absorbing New Zealand’s incantation one scene at a time. From incredible saturated colored sunsets, misty mountain regions, cristal clear mirror lakes and rocky coasts, to rugged glacial valleys, lush forests with never-ending waterfalls, towering alpine peaks, the so called “Spiritual Center of the World” and the amazing spectacle of the Aurora Australis. The south island feels like a never-ending rollercoaster of masterpieces awaiting to be captured by our camera lenses.
All the images were taken with a Fujifilm XT-2, Fujinon 18mm, 35mm, 50-230mm and a Rokinon 12mm lenses.
Edited and processed on Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop.
