Right, this fellow in the Philippines would like me to send him some "Lord of the Rings" style landscapes. These are not necessarily the exact ones used in the film, but they are the best I could find locally. These are the Craig Potton range. Craig Potton is a highly acclaimed NZ photographer. He has a good eye for dramatic landscapes!
In case you can't read the captions:
From L to R.
the Southern Alps (aka The Misty Mountains)
Key summit of the Routebourne
Westland Rainforest (Fangorn forest)
Southern Alps across our favourite lake - Lake Matheson
Waterfall in Milford during a storm (not very LOTR, but dramatic!)
Also, a couple of cute natives:
The Kiwi - our iconic National Bird.
Hoiho - penguin love!
