New Zealand Days (7-10)

Here’s another batch of New Zealand trip photos—down to fjordland and up through central South Island. Can you believe how beautiful and varied this place is? Unbelievable! We unknowingly visited when the lupines were in full bloom—field after field of sweet smelling lupines. I made Daniel pull over constantly so I could wade through them. It took serious restraint for me to only include one lupine-y photo below.

Next week I’ll have some video clips to share, and then you will have seen it all!

    Wow, these are just stunning. I’m from Australia and while we’ve travelled further to Europe, USA etc, we are yet to travel across the little bit of ocean to NZ! As we start to ponder our travels for this year, NZ is coming up as a potential. It just never ceases to amaze me how beautiful it looks in photos. Happy new year!

    Gorgeous! I have such a soft spot for lupines (my favorite book as a child was Miss Rumphius) so these are particularly beautiful to me. Stunning!

    Good to hear you enjoyed your NZ trip, which I would also recommend. If you are keen on similarly stunning scenery and you are headed for Europe sometime, I would highly recommend Slovenia. Its scenery and prices beat the other alpine countries hands down. Admittedly Slovenia doesn’t have the cache (or snob factor, if you prefer) of France, Switzerland or Austria!

    Such stunning photos Amanda – I’m a huge fan of nature photograph, particularly flowers so these fit this category perfectly. They’re stunning, I really ought to go since it’s so close by to where I am!
