New Zealand is a diverse and beautiful country. It is a land of contrasts: of snowy mountains and fiery volcanoes, of alpine deserts and rain forests. According to the Maori this is Aotearoa, Land of the Long White Cloud. This 40 page book is a small selection of images highlighting the beauty of the South Island.
Join me on an armchair trip through this stunning scenery. Traverse the Southern Alps, take in the glacial lakes and braided rivers and step back in time to walk an abandoned gold mining town. This is not just a book, it is a journey. Come with me as I wander.
I moved to New Zealand to be with my wife in 2001 and have had fun capturing the unique beauty that is Aotearoa. We are both into our photography. I shoot as Pinepig Studio and she as Spiritsdance Studio, together we are Pinedance Studios. I enjoy shooting a variety of subjects and hope to bring as much as I can of this beautiful country to family, friends and strangers. My main topic are landscapes, but I also focus on plants and flowers, antiques, patterns, textures and anything that draws my attention. My camera of choice is a Pentax K10D, which I've enjoyed using. Take a virtual trip through the wonders of this land in one of my books. All are set to full preview.
