Auckland / New Zealand
Just an hour by boat from downtown Auckland is Waiheke and a few thousand gourmet lovers. A handful of lovely restaurants, a dash of fine wines and some quirky little coffee carts help add character to the stunning scenery. I loved my short stay here and want to go back. Big thanks to the boys at The Boat Shed for their hospitality, and the dolphins who came to wave goodbye when I departed.

Photography for Travellers
Ewen's guiding principles are simple...
"Go slow. Get closer. Look for the light."
"Photography is about showing other people how to see, to share the beauty of life. It's not a job, it's a lifestyle. We only get one lifetime, one chance to add some light into the world. Photography competitions are mostly silly. Cats are excellent."
