I've taken a great deal of photos during my trip to the southern hemisphere (more notably, Oz and New Zealand). Here is a couple taken at Lake Takepo on the South Island of New Zealand. Despite the photos looking cold, the weather was infact very warm on this day.

Quite a nice place to stop off and visit sometime.

I'll tell you, it is times like these i wish i had had a panoramic camera on me. Heck, even a wide angle lens would have done i guess.

Maybe next time.

Thanks for the comments. I'll see if there are more i can upload when i can steal a bit more time.

The Nelson/Golden Bay area (Where I live :)), at the top of the south Island, also offers beautiful photo opportunities. But then just about any where in NZ there is the landscape to take lovely photos.

I too, really like the second photo.

I never got round to checking out Nelson. A few people i know were heading there as apparently there is alot of work going. I'll be back in New Zealand soon to check out that area as i hear it's as beautiful there as it is anywhere else in the south island. I'll check out the North Island too when i head back.

You live in Oz and you haven't been to New Zealand? wow, i'm sort of surprised at the amount of Australians i've met who has been everywhere in the world BUT New Zealand yet you are 3 hours on a flight from Melbourne to the country.

I got back in this cold place a week past Friday. I sort of wish i was still in your part of the world.

Oh dear. That's so very wrong. You should do it next time you come over to this part of the world.

Infact the only reason i went to New Zealand (and eventually took this photo) when i did was partly because i was in this part of the world and it was the one country that i really wanted to go and see while in Australia. I could have gone to Fiji but figured i'll leave that for another time.
