New Zealand: Panorama Mania

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

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.

LOTR filming site stream in Glenorchy

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) that holds the backdrop for Isengard, and has since been the filming site for other movies such as Narnia Prince Caspian and Wolverine.

The coastline outside Greymouth

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.
