Aaaah thanks Our weather isn't always that good, in fact the last two years has seen some really temperamental weather conditions but it is few and far in between. For most parts we don't experience the extreme temperatures that many Countries have to endure. Thanks for the comment

What a cool little place. I take it that this is the set for The Hobbit? I have not seen it, but my family and best friend love it - I must forward them the link.

First time on yet another awesome photo collection of yours, and what can I say? Hobbiton is something I would see from The Hobbit, given the font style used to direct visitors around, as well as the tiny houses and beautifully-manicured landscapes. Perhaps I will add that to my pretty-long list of "to-dos" in Auckland (and in NZ in general) so that I can truly enjoy the place. Well done, mate! Love your pics here again, and I'm coming back for more!

It is an awesome place and should be included on everybody's itinerary. I hope that you enjoy the movies as much as I did

Did I see a strawberry on your 4th picture? I'd really love to take a picture of that again! I find Hobbiton to be stunningly beautiful... By any chance, did you also go to the places where the LOTR series were filmed? I'd love to see those too! Again, excellent shots, mate! Hopefully, I can learn even more photography techniques from you!

Yup, almost everything is real, including the apples, strawberries, pears - it's great watching the bumble bees and butterflies flying around which makes it feel less "artificial". Like I stated in the Waikato thread - my iso was set wrong and I have lost lots of pics, these were the only ones that I could save but they quality is awful therefore I won't be a good teacher at all Your pics are great. Thanks again for the kind words.
