Last night's Aurora Australis looking south from Coronet Peak. A favourite viewpoint for this phenomena in the past.... Great timelapse! ... See MoreSee Less

So this just happened... after an epic road trip to Milford Sound as I'm unpacking the car I get an Aurora alert so I raced up Coronet Peak just on dusk followed by the rest of Queenstown making it the busiest I've seen the road you can see bottom right... anyway to the Aurora it was a little different to the ones I've seen before... this was beautifully dancing as it lit up the sky, with the most intense green I have seen from any Aurora. Just in total awe... couldn't help but blurt out a few yeeeeeoooooowwwws but I think everyone on the mountain was doing the same. . . πŸ—Ί Coronet Peak, Queenstown, New Zealand πŸ“· Canon 5dii 596 image time lapse taken over 3 and a half hours. πŸ“† Between 6pm-9:30pm 28 May 17 🌌 Aurora Australis, The Southern Lights. . . . . #queenstown #queenstownnz #queenstownnz #queenstownlife #newzealand #newzealandnatural #newzealandguide #metservicenz #kiwipics #gottalovenz #purenewzealand #purenz #astrophotography #aurorahunting #auroraaustralis #nightsky #longexpoelite #landscape_lovers #createcommune #exploretocreate #exploreeverything #igworldclub #ig_shotz #timelapse #awesome_earthpix #jw_snapshots #visualsjw #nzherald

When visiting New Zealand, exploring these islands, there is another pristine island other than our own Mou Waho Island we visit on our Lake cruise/walk in the deep South - Sterart island's jewel - Ulva island - a little harder to access, due to 2 ferry crossings just to get there but it is an amazing place to see a different smaller species of Weka and many curious rare birds are thriving on this island. Both islands are predator free, giving a glimpse of what NZ was like before humans arrived 800 years ago. #StewartIsland #NZWeka ... See MoreSee Less
