West Coast Down Under 1/3 ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ

The Solo Apostle ๐Ÿ—ฟ
โ€ข
Back in November we took our car out of Melbourne and headed west along the Great Ocean Road for th coast. The drive itself is nothing short of stunning, but seeing these giants in person was something else ๐Ÿš—
โ€ข
It's not the rock itself but the process of how they've come to be how they are that I found impressive. The Tasman Sea's relentless crusade against the land has left these beauties standing tall but lonely. Most people look northward at the stacks and a lot of people miss this guy, who's technically first in line of the apostles. Ten points if you can tell me how many apostles there are ๐Ÿ—ฟโœ๏ธ๐Ÿค“ __________________________

Scaling NZ's Peaks 3/3 ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฟ

I don't normally use IG to comment on current affairs, but today I'm saddened to wake up and see the news about Christchurch. New Zealand was such a beautiful country when we visited, it really stole our hearts and we couldn't have felt more safe in any of its corners. So this news really shocks me and reminds me that although our world is a beautiful one, sadly at times like these it can be the shittiest. My thoughts go out to those affected by this tragedy ๐Ÿ™

Towering over Towns โ›ฐ๏ธ
โ€ข
You know you're high up when a town of 40,000 people can be hidden behind the size of your thumb. That's the kinda view you get from the saddle of Ben Lomond (1200m up), not even the peak ๐Ÿ‘
โ€ข
The trail to the peak winds and bends round the mountains, sometimes taking on easy terrain and sometimes a punishing clamber up seriously loose rocks. Up to the saddle it's not so bad since you're Inna fairly visible and wide path, probably 3-4m wide. Although here that path looks more like a strand of hair. Double points if you can spot the hiker in the second half of this frame ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘€ (no prize sadly, just a shout-out!)๐Ÿ’ฏ

Views from the Ridge โ›ฐ๏ธ
โ€ข
Standing 1800m tall, Ben Lomond towers over Queenstown, the South Island's buzziest and most thrill seeking city. The climb starts easy with a walk through the woods, until the trees break in front of you, drawing like a curtain, and reveal this giant, rugged shard with three distinct ridges towards the summit, perfectly formed like a dragons back ๐Ÿ‰
โ€ข
We actually didn't set out to complete this climb. We committed first to the saddle, which was about 1250m up (and just behind the first ridge in this photo). Once there our legs felt brave and we powered up beyond the first ridge, and onto the second where this photo was taken. Can anyone spot the girlfriend taking a quick break? ๐Ÿ‘€
โ€ข
PS don't worry we made it to the top ๐Ÿ’ช

The Great Wall of Amer ๐Ÿฏ
โ€ข
Amer Fort's wall is the worlds third longest and largest wall, behind only Kumbhalgarh and China. It stretches deep and far along the mountain ridges and is a punishing climb to the top in the heat and humidity ๐ŸŒก๏ธ๐Ÿ’ง
โ€ข
Can you spot the two brave souls making the ascent? ๐Ÿ‘€

The Floating Palace ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿ‘‘
โ€ข
Jal Mahal literally translates to 'water palace', and it's pretty obvious why this beauty took on such a name. Believe it or not, the palace is actually 5 storeys tall, but 4 of them are submerged beneath Man Sagar Lake's surface ๐Ÿฏ so I guess it's not technically it's not floating ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ
โ€ข
Either way, this is another relic from Rajasthan's bygone days and sits between a set of hills known as the tiger-abode ๐Ÿ… I learned after leaving Jaipur that this palace has been unoccupied for a long time, but now it's under restoration and will soon open to the public, reachable only by boat ๐Ÿšฃโ€โ™‚๏ธ __________________________

Amer Fort ๐Ÿ”ถ๐Ÿฐ
โ€ข
Jaipur is known as the pink city, alongside it's brothers the blue city of Jodhpur and the white city or Udaipur. Less commonly known is that only Jaipur's inner city goes by this name, and in order to find the city's real beauty you have to travel 10km north east towards Amer ๐ŸŒ
โ€ข
Out there, the biggest and most staggering relic is the Amer Fort, built from the earth with sandstone and marble in the late 1500s. Before you even enter the fort you zigzag through these beautiful symmetrical gardens that I honestly think are sometimes more impressive themselves. I later learned this temple here is dedicated to Shila Devi, the famous idol of Durga the warrior goddess and protector of peace and the good in Hindu religion. This must be where the beauty was taken from ๐Ÿ’Ž

Sunrise walks in Sydney 3/3 ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ

Frothy Seas and Rugged Coasts ๐ŸŒŠ
โ€ข
The short walk from Coogee beach up to Bondi beach has sunrise spots and beaches aplenty. In my last post I wanted to show off some of the houses and their unimagineably good views over the sea. But one thing I loved most was how dramatic the whole scene is when you're between the beaches โ›ฑ๏ธ
โ€ข
Here's a view of the coast where the vicious Tasman Sea has battered the rock away, so much so that it looks like an ampitheatre for watching the everlong battle of surf vs turf. Looks like the Tasman Sea is winning to me... But in the process, this contest produces some staggering and dramatic scenery along the short 5km walk ๐Ÿค™

House With A View ๐Ÿ 
โ€ข
Sydney's East coast is littered with gorgeous golden beaches, but personally I don't think the houses along the edge get nearly enough attention ๐Ÿ‘€
โ€ข
Look at them! They're all uniquely built, not two look the same. However what they all have in common is an amazing view of the Tasman Sea lapping against the rocks beneath them. Best view in the house I'd say for catching the moment when our earth starts another full spin in front of the sun ๐ŸŒ…

The Warmest Light ๐Ÿ”ถ๐Ÿ”ธ
โ€ข
When you walk along Sydney's East coast at 6am, you're one of the first to see the sunrise for that day, second only to New Zealand. The first rise always feels like the warmest, when the sun washes over you to start a brand new day ๐ŸŒŠ
โ€ข
As we walked along this Jurassic looking coast, we caught all kinds of colour when the Tasman sea sprayed mist into the sleepy air. This was probably one of the best Monday mornings I've had ๐Ÿ’ฏ

Zig zags in New Zealand 3/3 ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฟ

Driving off into the mountains ๐Ÿš˜
โ€ข
The roads in New Zealand are nothing short of breathtaking. From deep blue coasts to green and maroon mountains, it felt like we were driving through some seriously scenic paintings. A really surreal experience. Here is one final shot of Lindis Pass to close this photography series and also to enter the #natgeo100contest ๐Ÿ’ฏ
โ€ข
There'll be some sort of contest running tomorrow. I have no idea how it works but if you come across my post do us a favour and vote me up so I can win a photography trip to Tanzania ๐Ÿคž

Moody AF mountains ๐ŸŒฉ๏ธ๐Ÿž๏ธ
โ€ข
When we drove along Lindis Pass last year we didn't expect the mountains to be quite this dramatic, even for NZ. I think the looming grey clouds made it feel way more moody โ˜๏ธ
โ€ข
While everyone knows the Lord of the Rings was filmed in NZ, these Southern Alps definitely made it into a few shots, as well as some nearby private land just out of shot here. Personally I think this passage deserves its own fame simply for how moody and powerful the landscape can be โ›ฐ๏ธ๐Ÿ’
