It’s been a while since my last images release last September, yes, time passes by fast, and I wasn’t wasting my time.
Rather, it was the opposite. I spent quite some time on the road chasing the light and visiting many new places, as well as going back to those favourite ones.
New locations in magnificent Mt. Cook National Park has been visited, stunning beach of Totaranui, Wharariki and much, much more fell a target of my camera…and then, long days were spent in office processing and uploading all those image files onto our stock site.
As a result, you can now found several hundreds of new photos added and spread throughout galleries on our website and where they are now all available for licensing.
To view samples of these new images showcasing coastal areas of Golden Bay on top of the South Island, as well as new locations in Mt. Cook National Park and Abel Tasman National Parks , plus much more, please visit our image gallery New Stock Coastal and Mountains Images from Totaranui, Wharariki, West Coast, Mt. Cook and Abel Tasman NP .

Thank you and Enjoy!
Linking up with last post from Watering Cove on Abel Tasman Coastal Track, this post is from well known and visited grounds of Totaranui. Stunning beach of this place has been a draw card for kiwi families for decades and it’s no wonder. The seclusion of this area at the northern part of the Abel Tasman Track with great camping facilities makes it quite a special place. Pristine waters, rock formations to explore and golden sand of the beach… it’s a heaven….
If you find yourself walking this track, this beach offers you amazing relax for your weary legs and you just need to make sure, that you book your place in Totaranui for more then one night to make most of this fantastic location! There is a whole lot to Enjoy!
P.S. It’s a pure coincidence but if you’re heading that way now, we might bump into each other, as we’re heading that way too, right now!!!
In this set of posts and upcoming southern summer, I have something for beach lovers.
In the upper left corner of the South Island, there is a hidden paradise. Yes, I’m talking about Abel Tasman NP, the smallest of New Zealand National Parks, where one can find some of the most pristine and scenic beaches in New Zealand.
Obviously, next to hiking and tramping, the biggest activities in the park would have to be sea kayaking. Hiring a kayak or taking a guided tour on kayak will enable you to explore hidden gems of the park together with small pristine beaches often unaccessible on foot.
The area of Abel Tasman NP carries suggestions that this land has been occupied by indigenous Maori people for some 800 years but it’s been named after Dutch explorer Abel Tasman who is considered to be the first European who made in 1642 contact with this area.
This image of the golden beach at Watering Cove shows the pristineness and beauty of this park, which truly is a mecca for not only New Zealanders but holiday makers from all around the world.
