Now this shot from Central Otago made our longlist for our calendars (our top 48 shots) but it failed to even make the shortlist! A gentle reminder our 2016 calendars are now in production (we expect to have them in our hands by mid-October). You can take a look at our final selection on our website http://www.freshtakepublishers.com/collections/calendars.
While many of our photos from our trip to the South Island feature snow this one was taken at dawn at Long Beach just past #PortChalmers near #Dunedin. We love the golden tinge to this picture. It looks so remote but is only 30 minutes drive from Dunedin.
We took this photo in #CentralOtago during our recent trip there. Along with demonstrating how dry and barren the land is there; this, along with some of our other recent posts demonstrate why this area of New Zealand was used so much in the making of movies like #Lordoftherings and #thehobbit.
The #CentralOtagoRailTrail stretches for miles and miles. It's an old train track turned into a bicycle and walking path. We didn't have any bikes with us but we did take a walk along it and found this shed standing on its own in this field. David was especially captured by the snow capped hills and mountains that we saw a lot of in Central Otago. Growing up in a subtropical climate in the Far North of New Zealand, that is one thing they don't have there.
We have been in the South Island this last week and this shot is from Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown near Mount Nicholas Station (ranch). Usually the photos we post are taken by Jennifer but this is one of David's.
