Natty Park wanders…

Always enjoy time at National Park even if the weather is a bit annoying but so what…its mountains on a island. Weather seems to happen. But off course when weather happens there is always the world famous in Natty Park Schnapps Bar to squander a bit of spare time…just make sure your bed is walking distance or let some-one else drive.

As usual all the watermarked images are available as a canvas with-out the watermarks…see the pricing page for info.

Cheers…

We also planned a hike from the Desert road to the chateau looking for a sunset near the Tama lakes but weather being weather that didn’t go well. Never mind the dinner we cooked went down rather nicely part way then amnaged to arrive at the Chateau at about 11.40pm then off to the book-a-batch. No sooner settling down then that earthquake happened…not nice.

Following are a collection of iPhone images purely for illustration…the image quality is not up to printing…of the across the divide wander.

The redwoods at Rotorua town on the road to Tarawera Lake are a really special spot with a heap of options for wandering …from easy to gut busting.

Highly recommend if you want to chill out and the new skywalk looks a blast as well…

Full moon at Sulphur Point…

Full moon at Sulphur Point…

Planned this shot with the full moon arising behind the container terminal at Sulphur Point but one thing that you cannot plan is where the container cranes are at any given time. Worked out well methought…

As usual prints are available without the watermark…

When trying to get certain shots by good planning and it works is satisfying but when a shot happens by accident when the planning was a bit lax well that is just good fortune and we will take it…thank you.

So wandering up the exercise hill and come around the bend near the top and see this…well it was quickly  into photog mode…as u do.

Just awesome really…no really!

The old historical wharf at Anzac Bay is not a well known feature. A bit hard to find and its not that huge but still a piece of local interest that has been preserved by the Lions club.

Heres looking for the boat to come in after all…
