Revisiting our trip to New Zealand and working on the huge collection I have from that trip. I think I’m going to compile it into a book, thinking back that time in our van exploring and taking pictures was the beginning of everything I’m doing now. It was the first time I realized all I needed was a little home on wheels, the great outdoors a cam and of course @gdell_ . It was a trip that started a new chapter, and these photos remind me of that every time I see them.
Spectacular sunset over Fakarava! Fakarava has everything you could imagine for a tropical paradise 🏝 - beautiful sandy beaches, coral gardens, whales, sharks and rays, palm trees with fresh coconuts for cocktails, friendly happy locals, and of course amazing sunsets!
We made it to Smith Rock just after sun down to catch blue hour. It was chilly and just below freezing but the peacefulness that accompanied us was enough to make sitting and admiring the last light on the peaks worth every moment 😍
This concept was brought to life by two shots from that night, one of @caseyjaymoore enjoying the last light on the peaks and a Milky Way shot taken about an hour later in the park 👌🏼
