Some of the craziest light i've ever seen was out in the fine suburb of wainuiomata (pronounced: why-nooey-oh-maaaarta). it’s a bit of a mission for tourists to get here from wellington but it’s well worth the journey if you’ve got a car or can somehow scab a ride 😁 other things to do in wainui include: shopping at the mall, getting a haircut at the mall, getting a pedicure at the mall and filling up your car with petrol at bp so you can drive to the mall. .. .. #wainuiomata #paekakarikiwherethegirlsarecheeky #wainuiomatawheretheboysaresmarter #wellingtonnz #whywellington #wellington #thatlightingtho #cabbagetree #moodygrams #moodygram #sunset_ig #sunsetsky #sunset_hub #lotr #wainui #newzealandguide #newzealand #newzealandlife #nzmustdo #nzimagery

Ballet. what do you think about ballet? was chatting to dan today about my back injury and how it's actually quite manly to do pilates and yoga (my claim not his) these days. to back up this statement, @maanonu does it and he's a beast. go and tell him it's not manly, i dare you. so anyway, was chatting away to dan and he mentions ballet. some sports people do ballet to help with balance and who knows what else. i couldn't figure out if he was pulling my leg, he kept a really straight face. have any of you done ballet during your back rehab? i need to get to the bottom of this..do i need to get down to a class and work on my allégros and adagios? .. .. #ballet #rehab #nzmustdo #newzealandvacations #newzealandfinds #love_new_zealand #destinationnz #capturenz #ig_newzealand #love_new_zealand #purenewzealand #newzealandguide#outandaboutnz #explorenz #newzealand #newzealandnatural #wanderlustofnz #travelnewzealand#hello_worldpics#hubs_united#ig_masterpiece#ig_naturelovers#ig_world_colors#igpowerclub#igrefined#igworldclub#infinity_worldshoot#insta_global

Machu picchu, it felt like i was there just 3 years ago, and i was. i have impeccable chronological awareness so it would only feel like i was somewhere "just yesterday" if in fact i was there just yesterday. yesterday i was at oriental bay in wellington eating lemon gelato at the beach watching sunset. . . i could be part of a modern day circus, what with the banning of many animals these days. i could stand under the circus tent with a blindfold on and people could yell out, "what's the time?". i would reply, after several seconds of thought (for effect), "it's 7:35pm!". the crowd would applause, there'd be a pause....and then young thomas who's at the circus for the first time would anxiously put forward his question, "what's the time now?!".. the crowd falls silent.."well..it's 7:36pm thomas"...thomas looks down at his watch, taps it a few times in disbelief and exclaims “he’s right!”. wild celebrations would ensue and my act would be heralded as one of the most accurate of the night. #machupicchu #peru #shitcircus #adventureaddiction#adventureculture#agameoftones#amazingplaces #bbcearth#bestvacations#bucketlistvacations#discoverearth#discoverglobe#earthfocus#earthgallery#earthofficial#earthpix#moodrepulik#moodygram#moodygramsl#natgeotravelpic#passionpassport#phototag_it#places_wow#planetearth#roamtheplanet#theglobewanderer#theimaged

Isle of lewis, scotland. a wild and rugged part of the world, even in summer. i'm looking forward to getting back there in august this year and capturing a few more of scotland's moods. go and add some scottish photographers to your ig feed, it really is a stunning country. start with @gord.cook @bumblebambi @eilidh__cameron and @loosemooose and tag some that i've missed in the comments if ya like. .. .. this photo was from my first year of photography (2014) and after watching a documentary on annie leibovitz i took a piece of her advice. i went back and looked at some old work of mine, work i had long ago dismissed as simply terrible stuff. it was great to see how far i've come since then but also to see what i was doing well (not much) that i could carry through to my future work. .. .. .. #isleoflewis #stornoway #scotlandshots #scotlandlover #scotexplore #traveling_scotland #hiddenscotland #scotspirit #lovescotland#visitscotland#adventureaddiction#agameoftones#amazingplaces#aov#aroundtheworldpix#artofvisuals#awesome_globepix#awesome_photographers#awesomeglobe#bbcearth#capturedconcepts#depthsofearth#discoverearth#discoverglobe#moodrepulik#moodygram#moodygrams

As i stood in the shower this morning shaving my beard off i watched a spider walk three steps then slip! it had attached a safety web so it only fell an inch before crawling back up to the painted window sill. it walked a few steps and slipped again. it repeated this for the entire shave. it was incredibly frustrating to watch and became rather obvious that it was new to the whole spidering business. i felt like opening up a give-a-little fundraising page for the poor bloke, he really had no idea how to spider! i wanted to send him to spider school, spidering for beginners or some such. i was probably half an hour in the shower just hoping he would make it further along the underside of the window sill. i had a mirror wiper on me so would wipe away the water building up on the bottom of the sill in case he fell all the way and drowned. inadvertently, the water from the shower head would bounce of my shoulder and splash the spider a little. this could be why it was so slippery for him. it's likely he's at the spin doctors tonight (a well known pub for spiders) having a gin, telling his mates about this human that was obviously new to humaning, "the daft p***k stood there drooling and splashing me..for half a bloody hour!" *chuckle chuckle* <--- his mates laughing. #spiderstories#insta_global#jaw_dropping_shots#lifeonourplanet#lifewelltraveled#landscapehunter#landscapelover#magicpict#main_vision#majestic_earth#majestic_earth_#mthrworld#natgeotravel#natgeotravelpic#naturesbeauty#openmyworld#optoutside#ouramazingearth#outdoortones#passionpassport#phototag_it#places_wow#planetearth#roamtheplanet#sightseeingtraveller#sombrescapes#spacewheel

A bunch of big curated accounts have shared my photo of those crazy clouds from moke lake recently. that particular photo was shot with a fujifilm x-t2 + 10-24mm lens and here is a photo from that same sunrise but shot with the 50-140mm. just want to say a huge "thank you!" to the following accounts, it means a lot to me that you shared one of my photos to all your followers: @earthpix @nakedplanet @fantastic_earth @nature @earthfocus @ourplanetdaily @awesome.photographers @awesome.pix @awesomedreamplaces @tourtheplanet @earth_deluxe @travellingthroughtheworld @destination.nz and thank you to all those who follow my work and like my photos. without you guys/gals the photo wouldn't have got noticed in the first place 😊 .. .. .. #lifeonourplanet#lifewelltraveled#landscapelover#magicpict#main_vision#majestic_earth#majestic_earth_#moodrepulik#moodygrams#mthrworld#nakedplanet#natgeotravel#naturesbeauty#openmyworld#ouramazingearth#passionpassport#phototag_it#places_wow#planetearth#roamtheplanet#shotzdelight#sightseeingtraveller#sky_captures#sky_perfection#sombrescapes#splendid_earth#superhubs#theearthoutdoors#theglobewanderer

The lone moeraki boulder after the others were removed by peter jackson to use on set for the next lord of the rings movie coming out later this year. there was an article on a nz news website this week claiming that the recent earthquake activity has revealed more of these mysterious rocks on a beach hundreds of kilometres away from moeraki but i have my suspicions they'll be nothing like these beauties. there's also some similar boulders lining a river just north of taranaki that three sisters discovered a while back 😉 but again they just aren't quite the same #willtherealmoerakiboulderspleasestandup #nzmustdo #newzealandvacations #newzealandfinds #destinationnz #ig_newzealand #love_new_zealand #purenewzealand #newzealandguide #travelnz #newzealandpics #outandaboutnz #explorenz #kiwiexperience #newzealand #newzealandnatural #wanderlustofnz #visitnewzealand #travelnewzealand#ig_editz #ig_eleiteforce #ig_epicshots #ig_earth #ig_fabpics #ig_fotoclub

I'm good at heaps of things (gross overstatement) but cooking is not one of them. nevertheless i walked down to the grocery store and picked up a few ingredients to make my first meal of 2018. i mean, i've eaten this year already, just not one of my own creations (gross overstatement). throwing pasta in a pan, adding chunks of chicken and a jar of pasta sauce isn't exactly a creation but it did the trick. i was chatting to aaron not long ago (you may know him) and he's right into his cooking and recommended cooking classes. not a bad idea as i don't know my colander from my ladle right now (had to google "cooking utensils" for those two). so if you're passing by wellington in a few months and feel like a slightly better than chicken pasta meal, look me up, i should be as good as wolfgang puck by then. .. .. #chefcrarer#amazingplaces#aov#aroundtheworldpix#arteobjetiva#artofvisuals#awesome_globepix#awesome_photographers#awesomeglobe#worldbestgram#worldprime#wow_planet#travelawesome#travellingthroughtheworld#tourtheplanet#universetoday#visualsofearth#tgif_sunset#theearthoutdoors#theglobewanderer#lost_world_treasures#magicpict#main_vision#majestic_earth#majestic_earth_#moodrepulik

This is the capital of new zealand, wellington. i contemplated photoshopping a turkey standing on the rocks to make the place a little more interesting but the repercussions would be far reaching. down in the comments section there'd be comments like: "hey englebert @engleberthumperdink let's book our flights! they have turkeys in wellington omg" or "petra..oh golly..they have turkeys there #blessed". then there would be the odd local @laurie_winter "you're the only bloody turkey in wellington, crarer". so i decided not to put a turkey in this photo..this is wellington at sunset looking back towards the city from oriental bay and it's not a bad view. a bit better than palmerston north aye @dstahern & john cleese 😂 (john cleese did not enjoy his time in palmy). if you're coming to wellington, i'd actually recommend heading to the hills surrounding porirua for some stellar views.. porirua: blessed with a giant climbable knob #colonialknob #poriruamustdo .. .. #wellington #wellingtonnz #wellingtonlive #wellingtoncity #wellingtonharbour #orientalbay #whywellington #capitalcity #newzealandvacations #newzealandfinds #ig_newzealand #capitalcity #cityscape #citykillerz #cityviews #cityscapes #cityliving #sunset_ig #sunset_vision #sunsetlove #ig_great_shot #ig_great_sky #ig_honors #ig_hub #ig_highlights #ig_hotshots #ig_infocus

Saw @leecook_images photo yesterday of some flippin' amazing clouds down near mount cook which inspired me to go hunting for the best clouds i've had down that way. it was the first time i'd ever been to mount cook and after seeing this, naturally i penciled it in to my diary as the most magical place in the world. some days i wished i lived down there but on the flipside i also don't ever want to get used to seeing sights like this so maybe it's good that i live in wellington where i have absolutely zero chance of seeing nice fiery pink clouds like these or lee's. .. .. excerpt from diary: dear diary..boom-chikka-wow-wow. what a morning! the sky was wet-my-pants amazing today. if ones eyes could o****m then my whole face was wet (tears of joy). .. .. diary to be released as a three part series for $39.99 each. hardcover special edition $59.99 .. .. #soinappropiate#r18#millsandboon#cloudporn#sky_captures#sky_perfection#agameoftones#bucketlistvacations#discoverearth#discoverglobe#dream_image#earth_deluxe#earthexperience#earthfever#earthofficial#earthpix#eclectic_shotz#nzmustdo#newzealandvacations#newzealandfinds#wildernessculture#worldbestgram#worldprime#wow_planet#earthpic #earthtones #earthlover #earthawesome

Can anyone recommend somewhere to do yoga in wellington? i'm as flexible as jetstar when you arrive late for a flight so i'll need somewhere pretty bloody good 😁 ... ... if this was me having to stand in the water most of the year, i'd be miserable and there'd be a high chance of contracting athlete's foot. it'd be kinda cool having birds land on my arms but having 500 people a day take my photo would get tiresome. people climb on it too..imagine having full grown men climb on you..while you've got athlete's foot and bird s**t all over you. you'd just want everybody to leaf you alone. i'm definitely not cut out to be a tree. ... ... #dadjoke#badpun#leafmealone#amazingplaces#awesome_globepix#destinationearth#discoverearth#discoverglobe#earth_deluxe#earthexperience#earthfever#landscapehunter#landscapelover#moodygrams#naturesbeauty#ouramazingearth#outdoortones#theimaged#destinationnz#newzealand#wanaka#stunningplace#ig_creativepics#ig_worldwide_hub#reflectiongram#ig_allstars#earthawesome

Fujifilm x-t2 with 10-24mm f/4 .. .. i really don’t like coat hangers. the ones in my wardrobe have these little hook things that stop garments sliding right off. the problem is that they stop garments sliding off... and when i’m in a hurry that infuriates me. there’s not an inanimate object on this planet that annoys me more. i end up pulling the bas*#rd coat hanger right out of the wardrobe and thrash around my room until i finally release my t-shirt from its vice like grip 😂 the coat hanger either breaks or my shirt rips, it’s never a happy ending. here’s a calming reflection photo for all those that suffer like i do #alwaysinahurry #theremustbeabetterway .. .. #fujix #fujixseries #fujixt2 #fujicolor #xseriesnz #fujifilm_xseries #fujifilmxseries #fujixclub #fuji_xseries#earthgallery#earthlandscape#earthofficial#earthpix#eclectic_shotz#everything_imaginable#exceptional_pictures#exploremore#exploretocreate#fantastic_earth#fiftyshades_of_nature#fotocatchers#globalcapture#globeshotz#gottolove_this#gramslayers

Fujifilm #gfx50s with gf110 .. .. i must have watched close to 30 movies in the last week and none of them stand out..they were all ranked over 7.0 on imdb so what went wrong? for the most part they feel like a regurgitation of hundreds of movies that have come before them..it must be difficult to be original these days 🤷🏻‍♂️ i like movies with a twist that i don’t see coming or post-apocalyptic movies cos i think it would be so much fun to be the last person on earth. i would do all the cliche s**t like find a lamborghini and drive it really fast through the middle of wellington while shooting red lights with my shotgun and eating an apple to maintain my health. i’d probably drive to @wellington.zoo to let out all the animals too. what would you do? .. .. #fujix #fujixseries #fujixt2 #fujicolor #xseriesnz #fujifilm_xseries #fujifilmxseries #fujixclub #fuji_xseries#earthexperience#earthfever#earthfocus#earthgallery#earthlandscape#earthofficial#earthpix#eclectic_shotz#everything_imaginable#exceptional_pictures#exploremore#exploretocreate#fantastic_earth#fiftyshades_of_nature#fotocatchers#globalcapture#globeshotz#gottolove_this#gramslayers

Fujifilm gfx50s with gf23 lens .. .. i hope you all had a great xmas day and a huge thanks for the comments on my last post, means a lot 😊 i tried to drive to my parents house for xmas yesterday, made it 20% of the way and realised i couldn't go any further..20% of the way just so happened to be my sister's place so i stayed there for the day and watched tv, played playstation and ate 2 minute noodles, pretzels and a sugar free coke. i also had one of the pieces of fudge from the fridge (sorry bout that..i resisted it for 3 hours though). sounds like a lame xmas day but i really didn't want to be the guy at the xmas party sitting in the corner making sore back faces 😵 and i haven't played playstation in a long long time. tip: don bradman cricket is probably the worst game that exists and i really hope none of you got it for christmas..here's to a great new years party..look for me in the corner making faces 👻😂 .. .. #fujixseries#gfx50s#moodrepulik#moodygram#moodygrams#mthrworld#nakedplanet#natgeotravelpic#openmyworld#ouramazingearth#outdoortones#phototag_it#places_wow#roamtheplanet#shotzdelight#sightseeingtraveller#sky_captures#sky_perfection#sombrescapes#superhubs#theearthoutdoors#theglobewanderer#theimaged#travelawesome#tourtheplanet#way2ill#worldbestgram#wow_planet

comment 17 star 1,185 4 weeks ago

I've talked before about my struggles with back injuries and back pain and up until this week i had been free of acute pain for a good 6 months. cleaning a car on the weekend however put an end to that good run and then getting up from a comfy chair a couple of days later rubbed it in a bit further. it's true that if you look at my ig feed it's just a sugar-coated version of my life and yeah i've been to some absolutely stunning places around new zealand so i can't really complain but the truth is, taking many of these photos has been quite a struggle. my goal for the last few months has been to get tramp-fit and increase my core strength and while my choice of food prevents me from having a 6-pack, i feel i'm in reasonable shape. i had been completing my rehab every single day right up until sunday so it's really frustrating that my lower back would just 'ping' like it did. it's a battle to remain positive and thinking that many people have it worse off than me only brings comfort for a short while before realising that i'm in my own reality, comparing myself to others does not help me one bit. i'm at the early stages of recovery so i'm still a bit salty about the whole thing, even feeling sorry for myself a little (a lot) but when i'm standing up a mountain in a couple of months, taking in the view, i'll wonder why i ever worried in the first place. she'll be right aye 🙂 #debbiedowner #fujixseries#fujixt2#naturesbeauty#openmyworld#optoutside#ouramazingearth#outdoortones#passionpassport#phototag_it#places_wow#planetearth#roamtheplanet#reflectiongram#shotzdelight#sightseeingtraveller#sky_captures#sky_perfection#awesome_globepix#awesome_photographers#awesomeglobe#bbcearth#bestvacations#bucketlistvacations#capturedconcepts#depthsofearth#purenewzealand #newzealandguide#agameoftones

From the tarn behind the other tarn. the humans at the other tarn were no other than @brentpurcell.nz & @debc_nz although it wasn’t really a surprise because i walked with them up the 45,000 steps to get to this spot. you may see a third person there and you’re right but i’m not sure who that was. i can tell you who it wasn’t though..it wasn’t @stellamaxwell or @stevenadams or @taikawaititi or @colour_me_creative or any other awesome new zealander 😂 they were probably awesome in their own right i just didn’t have the chance to find out. ... ... #fujix #fujixseries #fujixt2 #fujicolor #xseriesnz #fujifilm_xseries #fujifilmxseries #fujixclub #fuji_xseries#nzmustdo #newzealandvacations #newzealandfinds #love_new_zealand #destinationnz #capturenz #ig_newzealand #love_new_zealand #purenewzealand #newzealandguide #travelnz #newzealandpics #outandaboutnz #explorenz #kiwi experience #newzealand #newzealandnatural #wanderlustofnz #visitnewzealand #travelnewzealand

Fujifilm gfx50s w/ gf110 ... 110mm -- f/7.1 -- 30 seconds -- iso100 ... ... *this post sponsored by copious amounts of caffeine* note: i have used commas and no full-stops because i wrote this caption without taking a breath and it should also be read that way. go on, take a deep breath and rip into it! . woooooah, this is mount cook on a splendid december evening, whaaaaaat a beauty and i got such good weather conditions while i was down there because it didn't rain and there was nice light and i saw lupins which are a noxious w**d but they're pretty so we put up with them and they're everywhere so you can take lots of different photos and the colours are so nice including, but not limited to pink, red, white, off-pink, off-red and off-white but that's not all because there are mountains in the background, aaaaaaaaah, so gorgeous and then there's a town neaby called fairlie and they do great pies so you can eat a pie then drive back to tekapo to photograph more lupins and the light changes all day which is handy cos then your photos look different and you can then post hundreds of lupin photos to your instagram account and nobody will accuse you of being repetitive because you're not actually repeating anything and then you can drink caffeine because the moon lights up the lupins at night so you shouldn't sleep, you should take more lupin photos and when the weekend comes to an end you fly back home and reflect on a pretty good time down in the south island of new zealand, you should give it a go, you won't be disappointed, trust me, i'm trustworthy. -- -- #fujix#fujicolor#ig_newzealand#newzealandfinds#newzealandguide#amazingplaces#awesome_globepix#depthsofearth#earthfocus#fantastic_earth#ig_masterpiece#jaw_dropping_shots#landscapehunter#moodygrams#passionpassport#shotzdelight#sky_captures#sky_perfection#theglobewanderer#visualsofearth#worldprime#wow_planet#yourshotphotographer#earthtones#earthlover#superhubs#ig_bliss#amazingphotohunter #ipashots
