The Dirt Road to Paradise

More from New Zealand – Forgive me!

Normally I jump around the world and post photos from many countries out of order. But, I’ve been processing SO MANY New Zealand photos that I’ve got a giant backlog that is New Zealand-heavy! So, you’ll have to give me a few weeks to post a bunch of new work from NZ… I apologize for that because I know you are used to seeing more variety. But, there are some Really Pretty Images coming up from NZ that I am so excited to publish and share with you…. like the one below today! :)

Daily Photo – The Dirt Road to Paradise

After you pass Glenorchy, the paved road continues for a while as you approach Paradise. The paved road then turns into a dirt road. At this point, many visitors turn around, which is a shame! You can keep on rolling down this road in your rental car for quite a way. There’s even a few river crossings you can make, like Arwen on horseback. You can do it! Probably. I even see giant campervans going through here… anyway, the dirt road is in pretty good condition, so don’t let that turn you back!

Horse in Paradise and New Stuck In Customs Store Experience!

Try out the New Store!

There’s NO risk in the store… I always give back 100% if you are not mega-mega-happy! So, it would be cool if you wanted to pop into the all new Store.StuckInCustoms.com to have a quick look around! I hope you find something you like, and I’m very interested in your experience in and around the new interface.

And, since you are the first in the world to see the new store, you just may notice a few new products in there! Hmmm…. what could they be? I won’t tell, but you have to go behind the curtain to have a looksee… you will be excited! :)

A big thanks to the team for getting this all put together! If you have any problems, Real Human Beings are standing by to help you at support@stuckincustoms.com. They’ll answer any questions, big or small. Enjoy!

Daily Photo – The Horse in Paradise

Tom and I just took a drive out to Paradise, NZ (Yes, this is a real place!), just beyond Glenorchy. Along the way, we saw all kinds of amazing landscapes and dramatic animals. Here’s one of the dramatic horses, striking a pose! :)

I used one of my Lightroom Presets (new store link) to make this image… this one is an HDR-in-Lightroom setting called “Drama in the Center”!
