Beautiful photo as always:) Hope your daughter was not to traumatized…another interesting - or should I say disturbing Queenstown lifestyle story!
This is the beautiful and fully functional sheep station just across the lake from Queenstown. There's no doubt that this country definitely has a sheep-culture around it, and I'm slowly starting to become one with it. Here's a little funny (in retrospect) story.

Alaska…amazing beauty!  So well captured.  In a fantasy sense it looks like baby and mother elephant taking a drink…
We floated by about 100 of these little islands in the fjords. I kind of felt like I wanted to jump off the boat, swim over, and explore them all! I always wondered if there were bears and stuff behind some of those trees… a bear there just kind of owning that island and killing anything that ...

Lake Hayes - one of my all time favorite quick walks in the area.   Only you could make the dirt and stones look intriguing…the simple beauty of nature..well done!
Stuck on Earth now on iPhone! This has recently been released for the iPhone! Stuck On Earth – Yay! What's Cool about the App? - It brings travel planning to Google Maps or iOS Maps (even though Google maps are way cooler hehe) - Save your trips OFFLINE so that you can access everything when you ...

Stunning.  It is a great walk!
More Recording Going On. We still have a film crew out following me around to make future videos. Here in New Zealand, this week in fact, we are doing several different things for future videos. We're getting better at this, and making the turnaround time faster and the quality better.

Amazing photo - great to have the video explaining it too - thanks!  Really find the darker cloud in the middle interesting…spaceship like.  The Glenorchy road is perhaps one of my favorites in the world…I tell everyone that ventures this far south that it should be at the top of their itinerary.  Have you ever seen the video they made of the making of the road into Glenorchy?  Can rent it at the library…some decent local history.  Have a great day:)
Those islands you see in the middle of the lake there are Pig Island and Pigeon Island. You can actually take a little kayak over there and there are huts where you can sleep for the night. No one lives there, and they just sit there empty almost all the time… I never see anyone on the lake at all… this is quite a remote area, really, even though it is quite easy to get to. This whole road to get here was only paved about 10 years ago, so it all ...

What a super photo of your son.    My 11 year old agreed that must have been the "coolest" way to start High School.  Here I thought I was pretty groovy starting school with my yellow sony walkman…how times have changed!
Ethan just started at Wakatipu High School here in Queenstown and he wore Glass on the first day. There was a special event that afternoon where the parents came along too, so I decided to snap a few photos! See the full album here on G+.

I LOVE this photo Trey - beautiful!  So soft…so elegant.
Upcoming Leica Video. I'm in the middle of editing a video all about using Leica lenses on the Sony A7r. I've been doing a lot of experimenting. I'll share it here and on my YouTube channel soon! Thanks for all the Leica Help. A few months ago I asked for some Leica help, and you guys and gals ...

Awesome!  Love your shadow.  Choppy is amazing - and so fun to be with too!
This is one of the first landings we made with Choppy on our latest helicopter tour. I swear — they are the most awesome things. I decided to reward myself with a few of these per year… the views you get are just amazing and I spend half the time being in awe and the other half recovering from ...
