Road Trip Around New Zealand’s North Island

Last week I did a road trip around New Zealand’s North Island. Few in to Auckland, spent 3 nights in the city, visiting nearby attractions like Mount Zion, Cathedral Cove and Hot Water beach at Coromandel. Then drove to Russel, Bay of Islands, spent a night there, then visited Ahipara to do a Sand Safari along the 90 mile beach, spent a night at the Tree House Lodge in Hokianga before heading to Aukland; but not before stopping by at the Labyrinth, Funky Fish and Waiwera Pools. Below are some of the photos taken on the trip.

Video of Giant Cuttlefish

A week ago, I scuba dived at the Gravel Loader to photograph some Giant Cuttlefish. The photos are available here.

I felt that photos itself would not do the cuttlefish justice as the way they move underwater is quite spectacular. So I took some video footage too and it’s now available on YouTube.
