Tranquil indeed, but sometimes the lake surface is a sheer mirror, then it is magical. Glad you like this, Jeff.

Greetings from Brisbane.

Greetings, Berend. The plants are flax plants, and they are a very distinctive element in many NZ landscapes. I love to include them when I can. WE certainly enjoyed our day here, hiking and exploring. Special area.

Thanks, Robyn. Dad

Bonjour Lydie. Views like this bring joy to my heart, and inspiration to my spirit! Thanks for your response.

Greetings from NZ and Australia.

...and here again! But you've got better snowtops. ;-)

Best regards from Prague, Tom

Thanks Tomas. Cycling NZ is best in the summer. I can enjoy the snowy landscapes in the car.

Hi Ian, as a local citizen you have an "unfair" advantage to enjoy the country out of tourist season! :-D

Your winter and autumn NZ photos would be nice enhancement of the group.

Best regards to Kiwiland, Tom

Hello Tomas,

I have to let you know that I am only a neighbour - not a citizen - for I live on the West Island across The Ditch. But yes there is an advantage in being so close for it is quite easy to go to NZ at any time of the year: autumn being a wonderful time indeed.

Warm Ozzie wishes,


Tomas K☼h☼ut on October 2, 2011

Ah, I see... West Island. :)

Ozzies have wonderful nature, so as Kiwies (as far as I might say - I've met couple of them too).

Well, your advantage of closeness is not "unfair", but still remarkable.
