Photographs of the natural world

In New Zealand I was most taken by the natural wonders, rather than the architecture. The Kiwis (nickname for New Zealanders) take great pride in the wild beauty of their country and are greatly concerned with conservation to avoid destroying their environment. Industrial over-development and attendant wealth has been shunned in part to help save their beautiful country from pollution of every sort. This respect for the natural beauty of their country has caused them to avoid using bright colors in their architecture so as to avoid competing with the natural colors of nature. Photographically this presented me with a problem. Much of my photography explores the relationship of colors and shapes used architecturally. So my photography in New Zealand mainly concentrates on the beauty of the land, sky and water in New Zealand. New Zealand consists of two islands, cunningly named the North Island & the South Island. Most of my photography takes place on the less developed South Island. I hope that you enjoy these images.
