about ten mins from where I live, when were you here bro? Or are you the aussie cat into feijoa extracts that came stayed with us last summer?


Evolving in / Traveling around the top of the South Island, Aotearoa..

Will try and check in as often as I can but life in the bush and on the road can make that sporadic..

This is Lion Rock at Piha Beach New Zealand.  It has its own little microclimate with native plants such as Kawa kawa growing in the understory.  You can still climb right up to the top despite the upper section of the path being removed due to erosion and rock falls.  We were there today.  The weather was perfect.  My good lady also photographed me climbing up to the top in some more photo's.

Nice thread, there are some awesome photos here! I'll contribute...

Booroomba Rocks, Namadgi National Park, ACT. It's a popular spot for rock-climbers.

 

While you can't make it out in the photo, you can see most all of Canberra in the far distance in the top left. Would be an awesome sight at night with a clear view.

If i had to pick a "winner" an impossible task i feel. I'd pick Paradox for the wonderful multi-focal macro shots =) Just my personal chosen style of preference. (edit) thanks everyone =)

Great thread and awesome pics!

Makes me want to quit my job again and go on an indefinite working holiday like I have done in the past.

Infact I think thats exactly what I am going to do....

Well done to all who entered pics! rather an inspiring thread :)

Definitely Paradox, that echidna pic is cool.

 

I hope I don't end up winning this with that truncated and blurry bird pic, I wouldn't know what to do with the seeds anyway.

 

More votes for Paradox!

Hey that's really nice of you guys to say, glad you like, but those awesome seeds would most probably be wasted on me too.. I wouldn't be able to propagate any cacti for quite a while I don't think.. so I vote someone else! :)

Link to a somewhat below 50% scale, downscaled my original 9 shots before stitching them together. Just overlook the 2 far horizon stitching errors.
