Well did 1,300 km on my two days off last week, it was very good fun indeed. As I was on a tight time limit, there weren't many stops and not much time to get pictures, but I still got a few keepers. Really want to do this with more time for photo's some time. 1 This is Mount Ruapehu, and active volcanoe - but you probably know it as Mount Doom from Lord Of The Rings. 2 Huka Falls near Tuapo, strayed from the tourist paths to get my own angle. 3 Saw this driving between Hamilton and Rotorua, the light was too good to not pull over and grab a snap. 4 One of the many lookouts on the way up. 5 Next time gunna have time to jump this gate and get some closer shots of those cliffs, look interesting. 6 And then we ran out of light... All up saw some new parts of the country and got out of the city for a few days - had a blast. Let me know if you like the shots or have any comments.
