New Zealand Autumn Colours

Kia ora,

New Zealand in autumn is meant to be beautiful, especially for landscape photography. I have travelled to New Zealand numerous times but never when the trees are in full colour. Otago is the central area where I will be able to find the colours. These colours will go from yellow, orange and red. The trees have been brought in by the original settlers in the areas of Tekapo, Mount Cook, Wanaka, Arrowtown and Queenstown.

I start off in Christchurch where I pick up a Hitop Camper from Apollo. I will then be touring for a couple weeks, searching the best vistas, colours, clouds and mountains that the South Island of New Zealand has to offer.

This is the scenery I hope to find again. This photo was taken in spring a few years back. You can see the deciduous trees in the foreground which should be in full colour when I get there.

Mount Cook

I’ll be visiting place like Lake Pukaki, Twizel, Omarama and Macetown. I hope to get a chance to do some night photography, especially in Tekapo where they are renowned for their clear skies.

As I travel along the back roads of New Zealand, Internet access will be patchy I suspect but I’ll attempt to keep the blog updated as I stop at campgrounds that have wifi.
