OK, here are some old but good ones (most from around 1990):
Upper Rangitata valley, looking towards Erewhon station, Canterbury. For the LOTR fans, the far side of this valley is where Helm's deep was set, although the close-ups were filmed in Wellington:

View towards Lyttelton Heads from the Summit Road:

Mt Cook from about 13000ft, with Lake Pukaki in the background (one of my favourite photos):

The reverse view - me and the Cessna I took the previous one from at Glentanner station, with Mt Cook in the background - note that Mt Cook looks subtly different now after an avalanche took a significant chunk off the top:

Rangitata River Mouth, top salmon fishing spot:

Lastly, good old Ashburton, aka Ashvegas, where I grew up. The mountains in the background are about 30 miles away, with Mt Hutt on the right:

Not me, that was lapsed kiwi with those last ones. I'm from the North Island, not that dark, damp, cold island to the south of Pencarrow Head...

Oops better not start that I suppose, all the Brits will get on our case about arguing or something... Except Biddy of course, he gets it - don't you?

Anyway as I got well told off last time by 80's Chick and Pinkie Pie... I shall desist...

oops sorry about that mistake. Guess I should pay more attention when Im reading these things huh? I kind of thought it was a little strange but now Ive gone back over it , its all painfully clear. Promise to pay more attention next time

Yes please lets not start that again for fear of upsetting those with the stiff upper lip As for Biddy yes I agree he definately gets it & was really keen to join in so we all know hes going to fit in really well in NZ. I shant start anything up again but just between you & me you know what Im thinking in reply to that one dont you

Anyway as I got well told off last time by 80's Chick and Pinkie Pie... I shall desist...
Not that we are afraid of them just trying to keep the peace as wed hate to offend our new china plates huh

Starting to get it! There's a definite North v South thing going on - everybody knows that the only people who head to the south island are loners with a close affinity to sheep!

so true So glad you understand my sense of humour unlike others who will soon be moving to NZ. All I can say is Im glad they are heading North & not South as they already fit into the north island mould, something we do our best to avoid at all times

Just think they will be going from this.... Charles & his new bride Camilla



To this....... Friendly north island native
