The Southern Lights dancing over Tunnel Beach!
.
Throwback to that epic display that we captured last May! This is still the biggest aurora show that we have seen to date and it lasted for the majority of the evening πŸ˜„! A night that we will never forget - hopefully we get more shows like this soon! 😊

Moody afternoon down at Lake Wakatipu! Knowing that we would have some wild weather on the way, we headed down to the lake front to capture the epic waves being created from the high winds. We had so much fun getting soaked to get the waves crashing on the rocks. Hope everyone stays safe tonight as the cyclone passes over! ❀️

Aurora glow at Meiklejohns Jetty, Queenstown!
.
A MASSIVE Aurora was what we were hoping for the other night when we headed down to Meiklejohns jetty, but we only managed to get a faint glow after hours of being food for the sandflies. It’s still great to catch the Aurora no matter how big it is, but it got us thinking about how often plans fail in photography. We have less than 200 images on our profile. To get them, we took nearly 100,000 shots. Out of the images on our profile, we only feel REALLY satisfied with around 25 where we got exactly what we were planning for. This means that our planned shots fail most of the time that we head out and that’s ok. Whether we get something or not we just love being out there and doing it! πŸ˜„

Winter reflections at Lake Kirkpatrick, Queenstown!
.
Some incredible clouds and reflections on a cold winter night at Lake Kirkpatrick! This was taken after that magical storm that blanketed the entire area with fresh snow. The light from the rising moon was beginning to hit the peaks, lighting them up perfectly and the reflections were some of the best that we had seen out here! πŸ˜„πŸ‘Œ

Gertrude Saddle, Fiordland NP!
.
Here is another one of the incredible view points from above the saddle! You can point the camera in any direction up here and easily find some pretty breath-taking compositions. Even with a clear sky for sunset, the golden rays on the mountain, the mist and this epic little foreground definitely made up for it! πŸ˜„

Gertrude Saddle, Fiordland National Park
.
This little calf destroyer leads to one of the best views around Fiordland. From here you can see all the way down to Milford sound and beyond to the Tasman sea. Most people do Gertrude saddle as an easy half-day walk but the best option is to camp up at the saddle. Once the sun starts to set and the tourists have left, you will have this incredible place all to yourself! πŸ˜„

Milford Sound, Fiordland National Park
.
I think we finally have an image of the Sound that we are happy with! πŸ˜„We have been wanting to combine these amazing mossy rocks with the famous low tide reflections and colourful high cloud since first visiting Milford 2 years ago! To finally get the conditions we needed and get the composition we had been planning for so long was an awesome feeling. Having said that, our favourite part of this image is Stirling falls being dwarfed by the surrounding peaks in the distance! When you consider the falls are 151 metres high you start to get a good idea of the scale of this incredible place! 😳

Through the trees, Lake Mackenzie, Fiordland NP!
.
Once you arrive at Mackenzie hut, the only thing to do is head out and explore the lake! There is a track that leads to a place called split rock, which is literally just…a split rock, but on the way you will pass the campsite and get access to this little beach. It’s surrounded by some beautiful beech forest and we were pretty convinced that we could find a nice way to frame Emily peak. Although it was mid-afternoon and the light was less than ideal, we loved the way these trees perfectly framed that epic backdrop and just had to grab a shot! πŸ˜„

Fiery sunrise at the Church!
.
This will be our last shot of this incredible place for a while. We were lucky to get some great conditions while we were there, both day and night, and it is unlikely we will be able to top them any time soon! In other news, we just got back from a quick overnight trip to Milford today after chasing some delicious high cloud for sunset. We have tried for a colourful sky there on so many occasions and this time it finally delivered. We probably won’t be able to post much this week as we will be spending a few days around Fiordland national park to get some new shots to show you guys! 😊
