The Cantebury highlands of NZ. Only a few hours flight, but a world away from Oz. Although the promised El Nino snow pattern didn't quite deliver the white stuff at the right time, the mountain scape did not disappoint. Driving home on dirt road short cuts to the pick of the ski fields, each day we were presented with the rugged terrain - rich rusty mountains with little snowy peaks bathed in the warm and dying winter light. I was blown away by the results on my return. Hope you enjoy!
