New Zealand – Stuck in Customs

Road Trippin

Daily Photo – Road Trippin

I’m heading out on a short road trip today with some friends… there will be some hot tub fun and we have a crazy idea to record a podcast while on the road. What could go wrong? I guess you’ll find out soon! This image is not of a road, or my destination. But it is a method of transportation… and it is New Zealand. So, it works as a daily photo… right?

Peak Lupin

Daily Photo – Peak Lupin

It’s getting close to the end of lupin season now in NZ. There are a lot of people who hate them and see them as pests/weeds, but I really like how they look… maybe they’re not as friendly looking as the bluebell and than gets them a bad rap… who knows!

Rustic Glenorchy

I think 99% of the photos I’ve posted from Glenorchy are bright, colorful, epic landscapes… it’s hard not to take those when down that way. Here though is one of those little corners of the area which is pretty awesome in its own way…

A Quick Tip for Social Media

Daily Photo – A Quick Tip for Social Media

If you saw yesterday’s post you’ll know I just sent out a newsletter which covered my most viewed images of 2021. Also included was a little bit of background info that some of my best performing posts of the year were those with tags like “road trip” or “car”. So here’s another road trip image… maybe people who’ve been locked down or those who are waiting on a new car through the chip shortage are all searching online for road/automobile based posts? Who knows. If you want a little sharing boost though, keep the above in mind when sharing your next image. 🙂

Fiordland National Park from Above

Daily Photo – Fiordland National Park from Above

I’ve driven up and down this road quite a few times over the years and always found it to be stunning. From the ground the options are fantastic but I got a whole new appreciation for the area when I started chucking the quadcopter up to explore further.

Flat Earth. New Zealand.

Daily Photo – Flat Earth. New Zealand.

I always have weird and surreal experiences on this golf course. Firstly, of course I take my camera all over the place along with my clubs so that looks a bit odd to everyone. Also, as it is a private club there is often no-one else nearby on the course so it’s just empty and surreal. I also listen to strange music while I roll around, taking photos, and the stopping occasionally for some golf. When I finished here on 18 one evening, I was actually the last person around… even that awesome clubhouse there in the distance was empty…

There is a cool tree that grows out of the water here. When things are calm, sometimes there are these nice little ripples that come by while the ducks swim around… serene.

Lindis. New Zealand.

Daily Photo – Lindis. New Zealand.

I previously thought of mountains as these eternal things that might change a little here and there, but now I look at them in a new way. Maybe it was because I would just visit mountains on occasion, and then I just kind of generally categorized them as “mountain” — but now I am much more interested in how they change over the year and with the weather. Even since learning to paraglide, I’ve come to look at the clouds around them in a new way. It’s been kind of a nice mountain-rediscovery process. Plus, it gives me even more reasons to go out and take photos of them.

The Tunnel Beach. New Zealand.

Daily Photo – The Tunnel Beach. New Zealand.

This is a really beautiful and unique beach just south of Dunedin. It’s not a drive-up-and-visit-beach. It’s a drive-up-and-walk-a-long-way-then-down-a-long-tunnel-beach. Once we got down there, hardly anyone was around. The views are amazing, and we even saw a few cliff divers later in the day.
