Middle-Earth took your breath away? The real thing is even better
Even before it shot to fame as the setting for The Lord of the Rings, New Zealand has been known for its magnificent natural landscapes.
Home to the snow-capped Southern Alps, New Zealand offers spectacular glaciers, picturesque fiords and crystal clear lakes. Not to mention sandy beaches, volcanic plateaus, vast farmlands and numerous mountain ranges.
With such a sheer variety of landforms within just a few hundred kilometres, New Zealand is a photographer’s dream and a complete life-sized geography textbook.
