Solace in the Wind : Max Patté Basking in the sunshine today, this beautiful sculpture (#solaceinthewind ) on the Waterfront -just alongside Te Papa - is the work of Max Patté. Meant to be his farewell piece - the intention was an adieu to the city he had called home for 10 years, while working as sculpting supervisor at @wetaworkshop. Max offered the installation to Wellington on loan for a year - but 3 months into the loan the city bought it. And soon after, Max started getting sculpting commissions from collectors around the world who had noticed the piece. And so his career was shaped. He never did leave Wellington. 😉

📍The Arts Centre | Christchurch. Another SCAPE Public Art sculpture is tucked away in a corner of The Arts Centre, this rather whimsical piece by Scott Eady (2015) which also doubles as a drinking fountain 😆· · · · #Scapeart #Scapepublicart #Christchurch #Spring #Nzmustdo #Purenz #NZ #Iamtb #Dametraveler #Lonelyplanet #Scotteady #Lumixgx850 #Darlingescapes #PassionPassport #GL2T #Explorechch #Worldnomads #Sheisnotlost #ニュージー #ニュージーランド

Do you know how hard it was being in Queenstown for 24 hours and not picking up my camera once?! So after our first day of mostly being indoors learning all the good shizz @thetravelbootcamp , as soon as we were done for the day @jubileescarlett and I grabbed our cameras and ran our little hearts out all the way down to the glorious Lake Wakatipu (and by all the way down I mean down the stairs and literally across the road from our hotel @qtqueenstown ) to catch the last rays of sunlight before the sun sunk behind the mountain tops. In this moment I felt nothing but bliss ✨✨ . . . . #cannonz #que#queenstownlive #lakewakatipu #girlswhohike #newzealandlife #queenstown #theremarkables #queenstownnz #purenz

Why not go for a short walk after your glacier adventure? Aoraki Mt Cook viewpoint from Governor's Bush, a short and educational walk just 5 minutes away from the Visitor Center. Lots of our native plants are sign posted in this walk. #mtc#mtcookierguiding #mtcook #canterburynz #christchurchnz #mackenzienz #purenewzealand #purenz #southisland #southislandnz #beautifuldestinations #travelphotography #walkcanterbury #love_new_zealand #kiwipics #newzealandguide #glacier #glacierguiding #skiplanes #destinationnz #nzmustdo #biaboucinhas

😍 Although it's not technically one of New Zealand's Mirror Lakes, we think Mount Taranaki Lake (the Pouakai Tarn) is a very competitive contender. ⁠ What do you think?⁠ 📸 @cr_travelblog⁠ 👉 Tag us or use #goNZ for a feature! 👈⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #new#newzealandtions #pur#purenewzealand #destinationnz #discover_newzealand #newzealandguide #ig_newzealand #bestnewzealand #nzm#nzdo #got#gottalovenz #gottalovenz #kiwi_photos #weroamnewzealand #outandaboutnz #newzealandphotography #airnz #nz #newzealand #purenewzealand #travelnz #newzealandfinds⁠ #newnewzealand #beautifulNZ #kiwipics #earthpixnz #newzealandtrip #nzphotography #travelnewzealand #capturenz #purenz
