New Zealand is a fantastic country, with scenery to die for.

Back in 2006, we were fortunate enough to have won a trip around the world courtesy of Virgin Radio. Thanks to my knowledge of the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy we won flights and spending money enabling us to make our way across the planet.

Whilst in NZ, we accompanied my sister in law to the South Island and spent a whirlwhind weekend in and around Queenstown. On the way to Milford Sound we stayed at Te Anau, where this photo was captured. At that time I had a basi Fuji S5000 bridge camera, but it captured the mood perfectly.

Whilst in Te Anau, we took a short Helicopter flight over the lake and into the surrounding mountains, surveying “Lord of the Rings” country.

If you ever get a chance to visit, go!
