Franz Josef Forest

https://shutterdiscovery.smugmug.com/Portfolio/i-37QPNRF/A I was on the way back from the Franz Josef Glacier in New Zealand and stopped by this forest. The trees were dense and it made it quite dark, but up above there was a wonderful glow of the leaves as the sun light passed through them.

Swimming with Dusky Dolphins in Kaikoura, New Zealand

https://shutterdiscovery.smugmug.com/Photos/n-pfXZ5/i-MCWSb23/A Swimming with dolphins wasn't even on my agenda, well not at the moment anyway. Kaikoura is on the east side of the south island and the only reason I had stopped there originally was because Christchurch didn't have any space for accommodation because it was high season, and the cricket didn't help matters either.

The Redwoods

https://shutterdiscovery.smugmug.com/Portfolio/i-qcVBdtj/A Whakarewarewa Forest in Rotorua, New Zealand has some huge redwood trees. The way the light caught the tops of the branches is wonderful, leaving the forest floor quite dark. As I looked up it made it look as thought the light was glowing through the spires of redwoods.

Liquid Soundscape

https://shutterdiscovery.smugmug.com/Portfolio/i-xHNSh3J/A The forest was quite shaded under the trees but the sun was just poking through at the top of the waterfall and lit up the leaves florescent green and orange. The light caught the top of Matai falls as the water fell, the sound of the splashes dominated the forest
