Meanders with a Camera - New Zealand

I'm currently living in Auckland NZ. It's where I've spent most of my life and despite some glaring flaws I do love the place. By no stretch would I suggest it is an exemplary example of urban design and cohesion, but it does have its moments. What I will say is that in terms of stunning locations in close proximity Auckland really can hold its own. And that's the point of this thread, to offer an insight into Auckland and its surrounding regions. Basically the weather is starting to warm up and I like to mission all over the show with a camera in tow. The results will be posted here.

There is no place on earth quite like the Coromandel peninsula. It must have one of the stunning concentrations of beaches on Earth. Seriously. And it's not much more than a two hour drive from AK. Thankfully I know a few folk with batches out there which I regularly take advantage of, such as this classic, rustic little beauty in Kuaotunu (Maori for young smoked eel).

Whitianga




I have a number of getaways planned over the coming months, weather permitting, so I'll most likely post as I go. Feel free to ask questions if you have any.

Great photos Neitzsche - stunning!

A 'bach' for anyone who is not aware, is a New Zealand colloquialism for a beach/sea-side house.
