Spending the day with some Trolls

Visited Weta Workshops today again. They offer a tour now which was excellent. Greeted by these three trolls. Now, where have I seen them before..?





New Plymouth

12 06 2016

Just found this post in my drafts folder. Oops. So I’ll post it now.

This was a few years ago now. After a few days in the sea front town of New Plymouth with the Taranaki volcano dominating the background I finally managed to get one or two of the elusive beast.

Although the skies were clear blue about our heads there always seemed to be a small clump conveniently perched right about the peak. The weather provided a few breaks in the clouds but it didn’t let up much.

Along the walk on the sea front I came across an interesting boulder that to me had a natural formation that I thought resembled the South Island. At the other end of the walk was this magnificent bridge, the ‘Te Rewa Rewa Bridge’

Back to Wellie on Wednesday for a couple of days before departure again.

More photo’s after the break!

Drone’s Away…

11 06 2016

Yes, I’ve taken the plunge and bought a drone. After unsuccessfully trying to fly a RC Helicopter, I’m pleased to say these new drones are much easier to fly. This is a shot of my drone taken from my friends other drone in attack mode following me around. Such a great day.

And yes, I’m back to NZ the end of this month and the drone with be joining my existing camera equipment. I just need to work out now how to host my video files.

Through the window

I’ve been looking through some of my New Zealand photographs the last couple of days looking for suitable photos for this years xmas cards.

Here’s another shot from one of my favourite places in NZ, Lake Tekapo. This one is looking over the lake from inside the warmth of the YHA there.

Enjoy.
