The peak of Mount Tapuae-o-Uenuku, which can be seen from all over Marlborough - and from parts of Christchurch, Taranaki and Wellington on a clear day, is New Zealand's tallest peak (2885 m) outside the Southern Alps. From the earliest days of European settlement, the summit has attracted mountaineers, including Sir Edmund Hillary.

Located in alpine reserve in the Inland Kaikoura ranges, Mount Tapuae-o-Uenuku, is the sacred mountain of the Kurahaupo tribes of Marlborough. The story of its origins dates back to AD825, when two chiefs, Makautere and Tapuae-o-Uenuku, were searching for food-gathering places along the Kaikoura coast and inland. The Waiau-Toa and Waiau-Uwha Rivers reminded Tapuae-o-Uenuku of the tears of his wife, left behind in Hawaiki. The mountain near where the two rivers meet during the spring thaw, bears the chief's name.
Marlborough's Rangitane also have a tradition that an earthly chief sought his spiritual wife and child by climbing up to heaven via the rainbow of their ancestor, Uenuku, a tribal war god. Nga Tapu Wae O Uenuku are ‘the sacred steps of Uenuku'

A small video pieced together from drone footage I took while staying at Castlepoint Easter 2017. A cyclone further North pushed massive waves onto the Wairarapa Coast in the days before we got there.

The footage was taken using a Phantom 3 pro drone.

NB. All flight rules were obeyed while flying including flying under 120 metres max height from takeoff and no people or private property was flown over.

Boho style apartment for sale in Wellington.
I photographed this apartment for one of Wellington's premier agents last week. I love the exposed brick and old wooden floors.

A playpark with a view

Homebush Road playpark and reserve has stunning views of the inner harbour on a good day. Today it was wintery and grey but you get the idea!
