New Zealand - Spring Break Photography
nature landscape riverscape & fly fishing
Nov 20 - Dec 5 - 2012
I spent two weeks enjoying the wonderful grandeur of New Zealand's south island, in springtime, photographing and fly fishing for brown trout. The majestic scenery on the drive down the west coast from Nelson to Queenstown was amazingly beautiful.
I caught, photographed and released my largest and prettiest trout on the first day, before the unusually windy and rainy weather set in. There was no shortage of beautiful sights to admire, birdlife was as plentiful as the trout, and I hope to return someday.
