The Tor One of those unplanned sunrises with @geoffreidnz . I am not really good at going shooting with people as I find it hard to do two things at the same time (the guys out there will probably relate to that!). The result is that I often end up not shooting or not talking which tends to frustrate me either way... That morning was an exception though: great sunrise and good catch up with a friend. The perfect start of the day. A few hours later I was back in Christchurch…

Gillespies Lagoon. If you want great reflections of Mt Cook and Tasman but are looking for a more intimate place this lagoon offers a very good alternative to the famous lake Matheson. To get there just get passed the famous lake and keep going until you hit the gravel road and then... keep going until you hit the beach. This lagoon is located on the northern part of the beach. the walk is supposed to be 45mn but can easily be ran in 15mn if you are in a hurry! While the lagoon is generally…

Sunset on Hooker valley The path to Hooker lake is about 5km and can be done in an hour and a half. Perfect spot for sunset or sunrise. You don't even have to get to the lake itself to get amazing views on Mt Cook. . . . . . . . .

This simple photo sums up what usually comes to mind when thinking of New Zealand's west coast: crazy sunsets drifted woods and fires... But there is actually more to it than this. Over the next weeks I will share some of my favourite spots in glacier country and give you some tips on when they look the best... and no there will not be any picture of Matheson! Thank you @westcoastnewzealand for having us. 3 days 3 beautiful sunsets 3 surprising sunrises and not a single drop of water…

Fisherman Island. Taken two weeks ago while visiting @ilovenelsontasman Usually one of the first island you see when visiting the Abel Tasman national park. Great to be able to see it from a different angle! . . . . . . .

Sunset in Cook's Cove Cook's Cove is where captain James Cook set foot in 1769 when he was sailing around New Zealand to map the country. You can see in the background the Tolaga Bay Wharf the longest pier in the Southern Hemisphere. . . . . .

Crazy sunset over the Blenheim vineyard. That evening the clouds were low and unpromising but a sudden clearing on the horizon allowed the sun to perfectly lit the vines and the clouds. Perfect for some red clipping! . . . . . . .

First light on Akaroa harbour. . . . .

@theworldisacircus admiring the glow worms in Waipu caves. I knew that trying to photograph glow worms in a public cave during a long weekend might potentially test my patience and faith in humanity.... it did. But the glow show when the head torches are gone is simply out of this world. . . . . . . . . .

Soft sunrise in Queenstown . This picture was taken on a peaceful morning on the shore of lake wakatipu. Well when I say a peaceful morning that moment was. 10 minutes later the sky was exploding with bright red colors and what was a quite morning became suddenly red madness. I just love when those sunrise take you by surprise. . . . . . . .
