Flying back "home" to my new home in New Zealand today. The conference in San Francisco was fun but extremely extremely exhausting. I feel many of my ends getting frayed and I need to recharge...

This lovely place is right by Queenstown... in the long and picturesque Gibbston valley...

It looks so beautiful and quietly :) I it was fun to take part of the GPPC :)
 
Having recently visited Queenstown for the first time, I can see why you might have moved there - so spectacular and scenic! Your image reminds me of why of have to return - very nice Trey. Glad you enjoyed the Google Photo Conference (oh, to live close to SF)

The more I watch this, the more I admire... and just can't stop humming: 'feels like heaven...' ;)
 
So pretty! It looks like paradise to me.
 
Yes indeed +Trey Ratcliff the week at the Conference and the flying to and from was very demanding for you. Being there I could see first hand how exhausting it was for you.
From the moment you stepped up on the bench to start our Photo walk on monday to wednesday night's final Q&A with +Scott Kelby you were very generous with your time. So once again a great big thank you on behalf of everybody you shared your skills, advice and thoughts with!
 
Ilike the "swirl effect" on the clouds, just like if they had been created by the brush of a painter.
 
Love the new profile pic +Trey Ratcliff ! The conference was exhausting for us attendees, can't imagine how you speakers kept up the pace! They worked you hard LOL. You did a great job!! Fly safe :)
 
This picture doesn't look like an original picture it to beautiful to be real !!!!! But it is God Bless America!!!! amd mother natures to see a beautiful sight like this to exist in this crazy world and it's free you just have to get there !!!!!! to the photograher: Trey Ratcliff who took this and had the time to capture it god bless for your beautiful eyes
 
It's on my bucket list of places to visit. :) 
 
Safe travels, my friend. It was great catching up with you at the show. I hope to see you again sooner rather than later.
 
Beautiful country! Have you visited Helm's Deep yet?

hey +Trey Ratcliff, enjoy!! You gotta love the South Island especially Queenstown and Wanaka. Do you have a favorite Kiwi food yet brother?
 
Taking in some huge hugs from the kids and your wife will help to recharge those batteries!
 
I wasn't at the SF conference. However, even from a distance (Spokane, WA), I got a pretty good sense of all the hard work that went on.

I acknowledge you for all the work you did that was seen and I acknowledge for all the work that went unnoticed.

Thank you. See you next year.
 
Safe journeys Trey and thanks for a wonderful photo walk and all of your
Informative and entertaining sessions at GplusPC
 
How Awesome! Totally Beautiful!!!!!!! Thanks For Sharing..... :)
 
+Trey Ratcliff Thanks again for making this exhausting trip to be in San Francisco with all of us. Your photowalk was a great learning experience and a blast, and your input on the many panels provided a calming balance to the event. I am now more inspired than ever to tackle HDR and try to create something that I'll be willing to share next time.

The many places of beauty, Thanks for sharing
 
Lovely place to play or sit and relax, love the reflection in the water!

Magestic,..I've gotta imagine that there's some color filtering going on in the capture of this image,the colors just look surreal.
 
I would like to see this place in person. I could live here.
 
An interesting treatment of one of the world's most picturesque destinations. Good work. I envy you Trey.

As always ... WOW!
 
hi "how do you do ? are you slept ? what for next tomorrow ?
 
I wouldn't say untouched, it looks like there is some landscaping going on. Great lighting though as always.
 
Really like the cold colours of the mountains mixed in with the warmth of the sky (above and in the reflected pond). Of course, you can't forget the yellow shrub on the right there!
 
I hear quite a few Americans say that of there was any place other than the States they would choose to live in, that that would be New Zealand; what's life like in New Zealand?
 
Welcome to New Zealand +Trey Ratcliff :) Your gonna love this place :) Head up to Rotorua sometime to get a feel for NZ ,There's Geysers ,mud pools and all .
 
+Trey Ratcliff - Hope you are feeling loads and loads better now. It is always good to come home after a long trip to recharge your batteries. :D
 
I would be feeling alot better to once I get home to New Zealand! I wish my home was there!
 
+Trey Ratcliff This one is very inspiring for me. The way you render the warm light so magically. I finally realize now how to process a little better after the #gpluspctr photowalk this week and my processing has taken on quantum improvement. Thank you again for coming to SF and sharing so genuinely & freely of yourself and your knowledge. Thank you too for circling me. It's an honor.
 
hope my father get build home at this....
