Easter Weekend in New Zealand新西兰:复活节周末

How about a few Family Photos?

I don’t share these very much… but I thought you might like to see a new batch! I took the family on a little road trip to visit some glaciers near Mount Cook, and then we came back home to Queenstown for a little Easter egg hunt!

By the way, these are all using some NEW Lightroom presets. I know a lot of you have already purchased the existing Lightroom Presets (thanks!). I’ll be sending these out with the new batch as a FREE update for you as a little thank-you gift. 🙂

I’ll put a little caption abve each one. 🙂

Scarlett reaches up to a huge iceberg that just flipped over, after breaking off the Tasman Glacier near Mount Cook.


Isabella gets ready to take our zodiac over to the next iceberg.


Scarlett begins the Easter Egg hunt in while the wolves chase her.


Isabella runs across the fairway on the 18th hole to try to find some eggs in the bunkers.


Scarlett walks along the path near the forest.


Isabella shows her sister a new stash of eggs


Scarlett takes a break to check how many eggs she has found.


Scarlett runs full speed to the next woods to get more eggs.


这种照片我很少分享的哟 ,不过寻思着大家也想看点新片了。我带着全家到库克山一带搞了一次小型冰川自驾游,然后回到昆士城进行一次复活节彩蛋发现之旅!


每款上面都有说明哦。 🙂

The Valley of Mount Cook库克山谷地

Aoraki Village

This photo below is very close to Aoraki Village. This is a very small place at the end of a dead-end road. This idea of a village at the end of a road that is encompassed by mountains is very interesting to me! I think it’s so cool, since most places have at least two (or more) ways in and out of the town. Anyway, once you reach the end, there are two places to eat or have a snack. One of them is the Sir Edmund Hillary Alpine Centre Café and Bar, named after the famed Kiwi explorer himself! 🙂


下面这张图片的取景点离库克的村庄很近。这个小地方位于一条死路的尽头。道路尽头,群山怀抱,在这种地方建村庄还真有点新意!我觉得这样挺酷,多数村子至少能有两条道路进出。走到头有两个地方可以吃东西,一家是“Sir Edmund Hillary Alpine Centre Café and Bar”,就是用那位新西兰著名探险家的名字命名的! 🙂



The Valley of Mount Cook

Daily Photo – The Valley of Mount Cook

One of the most unexplored (but easy to explore!) areas of Mount Cook is the valley. After you pass the lake, the valley opens up into a tremendous plain. There are thousands of little bits here and there to find. This is one of many gentle streams that flows across the valley floor. I walked along this one for a few kms… getting interesting shots throughout. Plus, no one is around… so, once again, you are off on your own!

Mount Cook and Lake Pukaki

Daily Photo – The Road to Mount Cook along Lake Pukaki

These lenticular clouds are pretty rare — but not on the south island of New Zealand! This is called the land of the long white cloud… I’m not sure of that means these lenticular clouds or not. Maybe a smart reader here on the blog can tell me!

Anyway, I do love this photo… I think it is one of my new favorites…
