Haast – Stuck in Customs

Over the Haast Pass

Daily Photo – Over the Haast Pass

This is one of the most underrated parts of New Zealand along the west coast of the South Island. Almost nobody uses this route because it’s the least efficient way to get between cities… but, for photographers, the least efficient route may be the most efficient route for taking more photos!

On the way to Haast

How LSD Created the Internet

Here’s an interesting and short documentary about something you may not know about!

Daily Photo – On the way to Haast

How beautiful is the West Coast of New Zealand? It’s foggy and moody and full of mystique. I absolutely love it here. This makes me want to do more road trips all over the South Island… I’ll try to do a few a year! Next time, I think I want to get a little more drone action going because the views from up high are even more spectacular.

Updated Cityscapes and a new Podcast

Over on my Smugmug, I just updated my portfolio of city photos. Since I recently finished my tour of the USA and got to visit a bunch of new cities, I figured it was time to update that portfolio! Enjoy!

Daily Photo – Along the Coast Near Haast

I took a road trip up to Picton with Ethan to get him in and out of Outward Bound. There are two ways to get up there, and I chose the one that was just about an hour longer so I could head up the west coast. It’s wild and raw and hardly anyone takes that path… It was my first time to notice this incredible area where the Tasman Sea is undercutting the forest. Amazing, eh?

Along the West Coast of New Zealand near Haast

Daily Photo – Along the West Coast of New Zealand near Haast

I don’t think this area has an exact name, but it’s about 30 minutes north of Haast on the south island of New Zealand. This area was so cool and it makes me want to explore it a lot more! I loved how the ocean was undercutting this cliff face and the trees would just tumble into the water. It should go without saying that I took this with a drone! 🙂
