New Zealand is a paradise when it comes to photographing the Milky Way: it is so clear and detailed. The possibilities are endless. It is definitely my first love when it comes to photography.
The most classic and famous nightscape from New Zealand: the old church in Tekapo.
It took me a few tries before I finally got the shot with a car illuminating the bridge over the Hooker River in Mount Cook NP.
Rising Milky Way over Lake Alexandrina, near Tekapo.
I was planning on shooting a panorama of the Milky Way over Lake Pukaki that night: the aurora was not planned but an awesome addition.
Quite a few more than five stars over the van with which I’ve traveled around New Zealand.
The Milky Way over the highest peak in New Zealand.
A rising Milky Way over Tasman Valley, just outside of Mount Cook NP.
Can’t really ask more than camping under the Milky Way at the south of Lake Pukaki.
The icebergs of Tasman Lake as the Milky Way is rising from the east.
Funny how that little puddle of water looked ugly to me at first sight before I realized its potential.
This loch was like a mirror for a moment. Then the wind picked up and it just looked like a slick grey metal surface, with no reflection whatsoever.
