Hi Kiwis!

I'm driving from Dunedin to Queenstown tomorrow - which is the best route to take and is there anywhere in particular along the way for photo opportunities?

Actually my mistake pig root is on state highway 85
I haven't traveled SH8 very often probably why I didn't think of it as an option.  Isn't it interesting how our past influences our choices.

+KelbyOne warning!

If any of you are members of KelbyOne, check when your renewal date is!

Mine was last week - no email warning me of this, so my membership expired and now they want the full price to renew rather than the grandfathered price

#save3  I like this wonky tower. I'd maybe crop a touch off top and left side?

Looking forward to spending 6 weeks in New Zealand in March and April. This shot was taken on my last visit there in 2012. Sitting on Queenstown beach as the sun went down.

Hey Kiwis! Some advice please!

I'm going to to be in NZ in a few weeks time, planning on covering some parts of the south island that I haven't seen..

My provisional itinerary is:

Christchurch 2 nights, Lake Tekapo 1 night, Lake Pukaki 1 night, Moeraki 1 night, Dunedin 2 nights, Invercargill 2 nights

Then heading to Queenstown and surrounding areas, which I am familiar with.

So - can anyone comment on the number of days at each of those places? I could do with getting a couple of days back actually, is Invercargill worth it? Is it worth staying at Lake Pukaki, or just passing through?

Any other ideas in those areas?

Thanks in advance for your comments!

A great circle by +Peter From to help the little guy :)
 
The UPCOMING STARS Circle JANUARY 2014 | Announcement Post

By now you all know that I promote people with less than 7500 followers in this monthly circle.

For those of you not remembering the USC, it's one of the most shared and popular circles in the history of Google+, believe it or not. Many participants have received thousands of new followers and some of the people I helped promote in the USC now have more followers than I do! I love that! It speaks for the positiveness of this circle.

Now it's your turn to join the action. But only if you have less than 7500 followers should you read on. If you do qualify, then read the rules (or guidelines rather) on how to be a part of the UPC.

The Rules (yeah, you remember, huh?):

1) Plus and comment this post to show that you want to participate (you must do that here on the original post). Please state how many followers you have in your comment. You also may tag friends of yours if they have less than 7500 followers. I'll add them too.

2) Reshare this post publicly to help promote your fellow G-plussers. That way YOU will receive more attention once the circle is released. If you do not reshare, I probably won't add you to the circle since this is a joint effort to promote new/old talent. YOU deserve to be reshared, right?
Let's show some Google+ love! :)

The previous USC circle will now be deleted and if you want to be a part of this new edition, you must ask for inclusion again.

What will prevent you from being added to this circle?

If you have a feed that is into SEO, Marketing, Spamming, Video Clips, Photos NOT belonging to you etc., you may be certain that I won't add you to the next USC. :) This circle is ALL about talented photographers and nothing else. Sorry folks... And, yes, I do check ALL feeds before adding them. Now you know. :)

Note: I do NOT add pages, ONLY personal feeds.

Have fun!

Release Date
I will release this circle end of January.

Have a great day everybody and enjoy your Sunday!

I'm off to NZ again in a few weeks so I was taking a look at the shots from my last visit - looking forward to sitting here, on Queenstown beach with my tripod and camera as the sun goes down.
