Tasman glacier located just around the corner gave Lake Pukaki its incredible shiny aquamarine colour 💎. Chewing the nearby rocks on its way out of the valley, glacier gifted the lake with the unusual rock flour that reflects the sunlight in this gorgeous way. ❤️ Ha, my way of sharing this fact is probably a bit less scientific that it should be, but the beauty of this place deserves something poetic, don't you think so? One of the most spectacular places of the South Island - ✅ P.S. The video of Alex swimming in the stonecold Lake Pukaki is coming soon - don't forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel! 😹
McLean Falls. It's been a dry summer so far. With no rain in Otago and Southland for over 2weeks, some of the waterfalls in the Catlins had hardly any water.
Can't say I'm impressed how Instagram cropped this shot 🤔
Hiking in the dark to the sound of rushing water led us to this spot. We caught glimpses of the raw Darien mountains in between waves of fog. Unfortunately the track to Lake Marian is officially closed now. Captured by @lydzward 💫 Use #newzealandroamers & #weroamnewzealand for a chance to be featured
Spent the last two days with this nugget showing her that camping isn’t so bad. Truth be told, there was a queen size bed in the tent that felt like you were sleeping on the taste of chocolate. Gotta ease them in some how. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ also, happy 2 years babe. 😘
We found Gollum! It was running around inside this cave knee deep in mud. Probably looking for its precious....
Behind the camera is an expansive chamber with a deep and soggy mud floor. There's a tunnel leading into other chambers behind it. It goes deeper than we were prepared to go and it's the kind of cave where you could be swallowed alive by the mud and no one would ever find your body 🙄
oldie but a goodie -
a year ago i decided to travel down to the South Island with my mates. last minute bookings, packing and sorting out accomodation, places to visit etc. but the last minute planning was undoubtably the best. it was fucking exciting not knowimg where we'll end up. surrounded by beautiful people and breathtaking scenery, we were thrilled to be there. we met travellers from aotearoa and around the world. built friendships in the most unlikely places. and memories that will last a life time.
so i said it before and i'll say it again, give spontaneity a chance. see where it takes you. and please share your stories. always down for a good banter.
The photo was snapped after the sunset while the sky were purple. It a glance away from the water, and I found this moment through the lens. It didn't turn out to be my favorite shot, I found it during the third or fourth time looking through that shoot, and wasn't until I turned it black and white I fell in love with it. I love the grains, love the slightly opened lips, love the high light of the teeth. I love the hair, delicate and silky, I love, I feel so close, so close to someone that is true beautiful.
The views like this went on and on and on...
While the main river is flowing some of these little side inlets are eerily still - so much so that the water turns into a mirror.
Hope you all had a great weekend! If you've seen my story you'll know what place you'll be seeing soon 😉 it was quite a surprise to see 30 cars and tons of people down there considering the last experience I had with private security...
what does home feel like? still struggling with leaving new zealand in 2 days . we’ve spent today with a few of the people who made our time so special . after being away for one year already we know better than ever home is where you feel welcome, you can be yourself, where you love and are loved . and I have this freaking great guy always by my side who gives me exactly these feelings every single day of our crazy life . #grateful
