Beautiful shots, I'm green with envy.

Yes,we may well be a bit spoilt. But if you want to meet a bunch of seriously spoilt photographers, pay a visit to New Zealand. As is to be expected of a green, lush country situated right in the middle of the "Roaring 40s", it rains a lot...... But the sun also shines a lot..... Through a sky that has had all the dust washed out of it by the rain. Take a good pair of sunglasses, a wide-brimmed hat and loads of sun block cream.

Be prepared for naturally saturated blues and greens with grand snow-capped mountains. Sands from volcanic black on the west coast to creamy white on the east coast.

A total photographic sensory overload!
