New Zealand & the Year Ahead

Happy New!
I spent the holidays Down Under this year with family and friends. What special places Australia and New Zealand are, WOW! We hiked the Abel Tasman Coastal Track in New Zealand for five days with our 14 month old scamp of a lad strapped to my back. Celebrated Christmas with my first ever glass of sparkling red wine (Sparkling Shiraz). Visited one of my best buddies in Sydney for three days. And introduced my son to his Great Uncle Herbert in Wellington. Its been a jam packed holiday. Below are a couple of moody landscapes from New Zealand. I took these during the ferry crossing from Picton on the South Isle to Wellington on the North.

Over the past few weeks I have tuned into some really fabulous new music ranging from bad DnB beats to juicy deep House and lots of ragga, reggae and dancehall in between. Music is hands down my biggest source of inspiration and I have lots of exciting new personal projects in the pipeline for this year. 2011 is going to be all about pushing the envelope!

Welcome to the New Year!

Wow! Thanks for doing such a great job of capturing these beautiful images of my country, Nick. They make me proud to be a Kiwi :)

Any plans to put more on the blog?

Hi Nick, my Auntie Kay pointed me in the direction of your site. Your landscapes are stunning and I hope you enjoyed your stay in NZ. I'm part of the UK branch of the Hall family (daughter of Don, who is Herbert's son). I'm a bit of a photog myself but more of a portrait type, will definitely bookmark your site as I'd love to see more of your work! Vicky x
