New Zealand Rocks!
This was shot on the rugged West Coast of the South Island in the Winter. The South Island of is characterized by grand open landscapes. Divided by a backbone of mountain aptly called the Southern Alps, the South Island is known for spectacular mountains and fiords, large beech forests, golden sand beaches and broad plains.
Beautiful beaches are a dime a dozen in NZ, and some of the best do not average one visitor per day. The South Island has become the home of Adventure Tourism. That is, ordinary people being encouraged to do crazy things; such as jumping off a bridge with a rubber band tied to their ankles, riding in a jet boat, glacier climbing, extreme skiing and amazing hiking!
