Rain on the Salt Flats

Luckily, I experienced the best of both worlds at the Uyuni Salt Flats. Not only did I capture images of the crisp white landscape on a sunny day (see them here), but shortly after it began to rain. These salt flats are known around the world for their beauty in the rain - the water creates a thin layer over the salts, resulting in an endless mirror all the way to the horizon. Here are some of my favourite photographs as the grey clouds rolled in and covered the landscape in a fantastic mirror glaze.

Hamurana Springs and Tarawera Falls


Hamurana Springs was our final stop in Rotorua, following our visits to the Redwoods Treewalk, Kuirau Park, and geothermal attractions.

This walk through Maori-owned land is incredibly beautiful, and the waters are a surreal colour.

Our next stop was Tarawera Falls, halfway between Rotorua and Taupo. These falls are vastly underrated by travel guides and are a must see in the North Island.

We spent several hours there, photographing and flying our drone through this fantastic landscape. It is by far one of the most incredible waterfalls I have ever seen.

Below are some of my favourite images of both these locations.
