Here's a new photo from along the coast on the road trip around a big chunk of the North Island of New Zealand. The country may look small on the map, but it actually has a lifetime of places to visit! I'm pretty familiar with the rugged area of Big Sur along the California coast... and this reminds me of 100 Big Surs all in a contiguous progression.

Here's a view of Tara Iti golf course from above on the North Island of New Zealand. It's unique for many things... one of them is all these tiny little "moguls" (is that what you call them in golf?) that make the whole thing feel a fun and fanciful. Another cool thing is there is no actual difference between the "green area" and the fairway... the whole thing is mowed like one giant green!

Here's another photo from the road trip along the North Island of New Zealand. This is a 9-photo panorama that came out to a bit over 10,000 pixels across. I've never spent so much time on the North Island in the summer and spring (I'm usually down south with the snow), so it's been cool to see all the crazy storms and quickly things change. You can probably see a lot of the clay and silt runoff from the cliff faces... We did a fine hike here for several hours all the way from that distant peak to this spot. There were a bunch of mudslides and stuff so we lost the path many times, but it doesn't really matter because in NZ you can walk almost anywhere and find your way around these hilly, sheepy areas.

Cool! Just passed 6 million followers on Pinterest! Thanks everyone. I think I'm the only person on Pinterest that doesn't post photos of pillows with pastel colors. I mean, there's nothing wrong with that... I don't judge pillows by their colors.

Here's a new photo from my road trip around the North Island of New Zealand. This is one of the coolest golf courses in the world called Tara Iti. It runs right along the beach and when the sun gets low, you get some pretty incredible shadows along the fairways. I like shooting on golf courses, but I don't always like making it obvious it's a golf course. I like the idea that it's a beautiful place that's just convenient for playing golf if you want to.
