"Wanaka Tree" Lake Wanaka [New Zealand]
.
You can't go to Wanaka and not take this photo. How else will people know you've actually been there? And, even better, unlike so many of its international equivalents, there's no hassle or nuisance involved in getting to the viewpoint: it's just a pleasant stroll along the lake edge from the township.
.
The trouble with such a famous subject is that there will always be other people there doing exactly the same thing — even having their wedding photos taken — so be prepared to wait your turn for the perfect angle to frame the tree.
.
The locals are somewhat bemused by all the social-media attention the tree has received in the last few years, pointing out that the area is full of less cliched and even more photogenic scenes.

Peace & Love

."Peters Lookout" Lake Pukaki [New Zealand]
.
The drive from Wanaka to Aoraki Mount Cook is a real beauty, this shot from Peters Lookout shows the Mt Cook Road as it winds its way around the hills and alongside the turquoise coloured Lake Pukaki. One of the most spectacular drives I've ever done!

."Night Glow" Lake Tekapo [New Zealand]
.
Situated on the shores of Lake Tekapo, only metres from the water, it is easy to see why this church captures the heart of so many by day. By night, it becomes the perfect setting for a Milky Way shoot, as it is one of the darkest places on the planet. It is almost as though you can reach out and touch the stars.
.
This is just one of those magical shots. The first time you see the Milky Way over here you almost feel shocked and in disbelief as to what your eyes are seeing. It takes you on a journey through the stars at just how gigantic the universe really is and how small we really are in comparison.
.
Built in 1935, The Church Of Good Shepherd located at Lake Tekapo is the perfect place to capture this phenomenon. We got incredibly lucky with this shot too. After weeks of rain we arrived when the clouds cleared, the wind stopped & the nebula of the Milky Way rose in the perfect spot.

."Confusion" Saltos de Petrohué [Chile]
.
Sometimes we confuse happiness with contentment.
By happiness we define those strong euphoric moments that we are longing for over and over again. As quickly as those emotional outbursts enter your life, they are gone as well.
Not very reliable indeed, whereas contentment is a way longer lasting feeling. A tone set for our life. Instead of craving for more happiness we should strive for more contentment as it is ever lasting and sets a tone for a healthy balanced lifestyle while outbursts of happiness will come along all naturally, this to me is the key on our journey we call life ✨

"Pancake Rocks" Punakaiki, New Zealand
.
I really like pancakes. I also really like rocks. So when I found out there’s a natural phenomenon on the west coast of New Zealand’s South Island called The Pancake Rocks, I knew I was going to have to pay a visit. The pancake rocks are perched on a tiny coastal outcropping near the town of Punakaiki and do a lot to live up to their name. The rocks are made of a series of limestone “pancakes” that were originally laid down in a process called stylobedding, which is scientist speak for “we have no idea how this happened.” Over time the layers have been eroded over to form a rock garden of fantastically sculpted shapes.

"Archway Islands" Wharariki Beach, New Zealand
.
Besides Photography there's lot more you can do at this Wharariki beach. It's such a great place to explore. There are many Sea Caves, some are completely tunneling the sea stacks and you can walk right through them. At the eastern end is a large tidal pool formed of rocks and corals. There you can watch little seals play in the waters during low tide. As if this wasn't enough there are various walks, which will lead you into the beautiful backcountry. I can recommend the Green Hills walk with a little stop at Green Hill beach.

"Rio" Pucon, Carretera Austral, Chile
.
Just when the mind starts to project edges making it harder and harder to fit in to this seemingly absurd puzzle we call society. It is on us to realize that there is no need to fit and edged are necessary in order to be that unique human being that you are.

"Glorious Patagonia" Mt. Fitzroy, Patagonia, Argentina
.
I arrived at Mount Fitz Roy and a snow storm started throughout the whole night. The next morning it seemed like nothing had even happened and I got surprised by the most glorious sunrise by reaching the nearby peak. The more time you spend in nature the more you learn to respect and understand it ❄️

"Soaking up the Desert Spirit on 4000m" in Atacama, Chile
.
The Atacama Desert in Chile left me speechless. The surrounding landscapes are unreal, mind blowing. Mountains and volcanoes, lakes and salt flats, red stones and white valleys compose a region which seems taken from another planet.
.
Chile is underrated !! 🇨🇱🇨🇱🇨🇱
