Do you know that feeling when you look at something and think, this is simply too awesome to fit into a normal sized photo? That feeling is what this post is for— the below photo-heavy collection of all the best panoramas I took in New Zealand.
A view of Hobbiton- can I just move to the Shire and live there?!!
These are the “Pancake Rocks” in Punakaiki on the South Island’s western coast.
A stream near Glenorchy, where a scene from Lord of the Rings was filmed. Can you just picture Sam and Gollum arguing about how to eat rabbits and chips, right before Frodo looks over at the Southern Armies and their Oliphants? Because that was right here.
Just standing in Lothlorien, enjoying the forest and the trees.
This is a field outside of Glenorchy (in the small town of Paradise).
A nice shot taken of the lake in Queenstown.
The coastline on the drive to Greymouth
Sunset on the beach in Greymouth city- you can also walk along the beach looking for stones and jade. I found some rocks that may or not be jade; I’m not an expert and can’t tell. The sunset rocked anyway.
