‘New Zealand – Land of the Long White Cloud’. Translated, this means 'Aotearoa' being the Maori name for New Zealand.
As a city dweller, I'm often 'geographically challenged' when it comes to escaping the city and fulfilling my desire to time lapse the New Zealand wilderness. Hence, this is my first time lapse of New Zealand landscapes. It is a compilation of my best material captured to date from various trips over the past year.
The locations include the petrified sand dunes at Cape Rienga in the far north to the lush rain forests on Stewart Island in the deep south. There’s also a few lighthouses and other places in between, namely the pristine lakes of Central Otago, the rugged West Coast and the stunning geology on the Wairarapa Coast.
Thanks for your 'likes', 'shares' and comments - they are all greatly appreciated.
