Steel wool photography is one of my favourite things! I love the creative aspect of it, but also how you never really know exactly how it’s going to look... after waiting the 15-30seconds of the exposure time, it’s always exciting to see the results 😊 . This is just a small portion of the image... see the full #photogrid in my feed ;-) . . . . #steelwool #steelspinners #steelwoolphotography #longexposure #longexposure_shots #longexposure_world #lightpainting #nightshot #nightphotography #pentax #ig_shutternights #ig_shutterbugs_creative #creatorgrams #night_brilliance #kaikoura #kaikouranz #wanderlust #wonderlustnewzealand #newzealand #beautiful #justgoshoot #favourite #bestshot @highly.flamable_fully.insured @jordan.ward99 #photographylife #photographer #visualscollective #shootandshare #fire #ipreview @preview.app
Epic mission away this weekend to Kaikoura! Such an amazing spot and it’s only a couple of hours from Christchurch. 🙌🙌 With a month left until we head off for our wedding it was so nice to take a break and enjoy each other’s company 😁 we may have eaten too many ice creams 😥 YOLO
One of the smallest marine dolphins in the world, Hector’s dolphins grow no more than 1.5 m in length!
Our weekend away in Kaikoura was nothing less than amazing! ☀️❄️🐬🐋 We are so lucky to call this beautiful country home 🇳🇿 📸 @qualityantics
Nature at its finest. The magical experience of exploring our great coast with @whalewatchkaikoura has left me buzzing, and seeing the amazing sperm whale in his natural environment beneath the backdrop of the @kaikouranz mountains is an #nzmustdo . If you go as a NZer you can also sign up to the Kiwi Whale Watchers Club which gives you 50% off future tours, and winter is a great time to see these amazing creatures because you’re treated to the sight of beautiful snow capped mountains as the backdrop! . . #NZ #NewZealand #NZMustDo #whalewatchkaikoura #kaikouranz #sponsored #whale #newzealandguide #destinationnz #picture_to_keep #master_gallery #igshotz #fantastic_shotzs #earthoutdoors #explorewithfriends #igbest_shotz #global_hotshotz #ig_worldclub #igrefined #outdoortones #exploringtheglobe #earth_magic #exceptional_pictures #hubs_united #travelpictures_world #zeisscameralenses #sonyalpha #planetawesome #instagood

Kayaking with very relaxed fur seals in Kaikoura NZ, hands down the best way to get up close and personal with this gorgeous playful creatures! #kaikouranz #kaikourakayaks #kaikouraseal #kaikourasealcolony #paddling #paddlinglife

Holy smokes! The views from our flight this morning were incredible! @wingsoverwhaleskaikoura I Learnt a lot about Sperm whales and saw a few cruising around. I’m loving my time in Kaikoura this weekend with @nickooscusiel. Cheers to @christchurchnz and @britzcampervans for making it all possible.

Where snow capped mountains meet the sea. This weekend I’m in @kaikouranz exploring this beautiful region with @whalewatchkaikoura and what better way to start than a sunrise at a stunning beach that had everything - mountain reflections, waves crashing onto shore and a love heart on a rock in the rock pools just for me - what more is there to say?! . . #nz #newzealand #nzmustdo #kaikouranz #whalewatchkaikoura #reflectiongram #splendid_reflections #reflecting_perfection #bns_reflection #ic_reflections #reflection_shotz #insta_sky_reflection #reflection #lake #outdoortones #earth_magic #gottalovenz #newzealandvacations #newzealandfinds #water_of_our_world #water_brilliance #water_perfection #reflections #sonyalpha #naturegood #naturelovers #instagood #sunrise #mountainculture #mountains 🗻

I may be wrong but this huge area of rock, the size of several football pitches was raised by 7m after the earthquake near #kaikoura Used to be under water! Kaikoura is an amazing place, stunning scenery, lovely people and whales! So go visit #kaikouranz #kaikourawhalewatch #kaikouradolphins
This picture was taken at the end of kaikoura seal colony. Before I went to kaikoura I read in few blogs that after earthquake it’s very hard to find seals now. But I have seen more than 100 seal that day. Some of them were with their pups. They are so adorable but don’t go too close to them. Mind the distance. #kaikourasealcolony #kaikoura #newzealand
Pretty chuffed to have been given a @mauimotorhomes campervan for the weekend to explore some of the destinations close to @christchurchnz ❤️ . Ben and I are off to Kaikoura for the weekend and I’m SO excited that we’re off @whalewatchkaikoura tomorrow morning 😍🐋👏🏼 . What’s your favourite thing to do in Kaikoura? #kaikouranz #christchurchnz #canterburynz #gobycamper #mauimotorhomes
If you want snow capped mountains, Norfolk pines and glorious ocean all in the one place then you’ve got it in Kaikoura! 😱😱 This was my second sunset and it so did not disappoint. I’m currently staying at the White Morph, which is on the waterfront, and these views were a short walk across the road. The guys and I bided our time before sunset by playing the ‘rock game’ and then this happened resulting in much chaos! Oh, you don’t know what the rock game is? Guess you’ll have to come for a sunset with me one day to find out. 😂😂 @KaikouraNZ #KaikouraNZ 🔥🔥
I’m not sure how many people know this but the MAIN thing that makes Kaikoura so unique is the Kaikoura Canyon just off shore, so deep that it attracts many deep water species that in turn attract WHALES! The Kaikoura Canyon is a part of the Hikurangi Trench and is just 500 meters off the coast and up to 1.2 km deep! Imagine a drop off in the ocean that is so sudden and so deep? It’s like having the deepest parts of the ocean at your doorstep! Because of this underwater canyon system Kaikoura attracts SO. MANY. ANIMALS! And that includes this Sperm Whale, shot from a light plane with ‘Wings Over Whales.’ Sperm whales are the largest of the toothed whales in the world and very rare and special to see. As they feed in really deep water you have to be patient to see them on the surface breathing, which they do for roughly 10 minutes before taking a massive dive back down. 🐋😱 @KaikouraNZ #KaikouraNZ
Good morning everyone! I was trying to shoot a landscape shot that actually shows how unique it is to see snow capped mountains against the ocean and it’s hard to do from land. Haha. But yeah, that’s what you’ll see in Kaikoura New Zealand. 🗻🌊🐋 @KaikouraNZ #KaikouraNZ
So ... this happened! Orca in New Zealand! 😱😱 I was at the official reopening of the marina in Kaikoura, exactly one year to the day after the earthquake, when a pod of killer whales was spotted off the coast. Luckily for us we were able to jump on board with Whale Watch Kaikoura for a personal encounter. This is only my second time seeing orca in the wild and I never expected to see them so close to home. @KaikouraNZ #KaikouraNZ
Good morning! I don’t know how many of you have taken pictures on the northern beaches of Kaikoura but I need to warn you about ‘slippery death rocks’, recognizable by their coating of sea grass. It’s important to avoid slippery death rocks at all costs! 😂😂 If you can manage that you’ll enjoy the cutest little rock pools around. 💜💕 @KaikouraNZ #KaikouraNZ
This is my favorite shot from Kaikoura and it was not without some hardship, lol. I know that this job can look amazing from the outside but there’s definitely hard days and this was one of them, maybe I love the photo so much because I know it was so difficult to take? During my week in Kaikoura I managed to block up my right ear and this led to pretty bad vertigo, something I’ve suffered from in the past. Add to that some 2 meter swell on the Albatross Encounter and you’ve got some not fun sea sicknesses happening 🤢🤢. I managed to take maybe forty photos, of which only a handful were in focus, of which I only liked this one. Lol. Funny side story, I asked my bestie Garry for a home remedy for the ear situation and he told me to microwave half a potato until it’s piping hot and then lie on it for an hour. I was so desperate for a cure that I did this twice. In Kaikoura. So amongst all the photos I was back in my room lying on half a hot potato. 😂😂😂 🥔👂🏻 (it didn’t work) @KaikouraNZ #KaikouraNZ
Good morning all! I’m starting the day with a peaceful sunrise shot from Kaikoura, quite unlike the adventures on my story. I’m also so, so happy that heaps of people loved my post yesterday. It was one of those ones I loved but didn’t know if anyone else would. Lol. Kaikoura yay! @KaikouraNZ #KaikouraNZ
Omg, I’m so curious to hear what people hear about this shot. It’s really important to remember to keep your distance from seals in Kaikoura and in peak seasons the department of conservation is around to ensure people do the right thing. However sometimes you’re just rock hopping on the south coast and you might look down and see this! I did get some shots of this little baby seal looking straight at the camera but I actually preferred this more abstract shot. Have an awesome Sunday!! 😍😍 @KaikouraNZ #KaikouraNZ
Alrighty guys, it’s my second last Kaikoura shot before I can start to share my new adventures. This is another one from the glorious sunset on my first day. It’s really warmed my heart to read everyone’s comments about this incredible region and I will definitely be letting you all know updates as they reach more milestones in their earthquake recovery. @KaikouraNZ #KaikouraNZ

My last Kaikoura photo and I’ve strategically left this one till last because it’s my favorite thing to do in Kaikoura, swim with the dusky dolphins! 🐬🐬 Everyone that does the Dolphin Encounter, with WILD dolphins, falls in love with it and I’m no exception! This fella was giving me the eye and I’m sure he was saying “Hey Gurl”. Thanks so much Kaikoura and I think it’s fitting I finish my posts on my birthday. Can’t wait to share my next project and I can’t wait to see you all visiting Kaikoura. 😍😍😍 @KaikouraNZ #KaikouraNZ

I was meant to land in Christchurch slightly before sunrise this morning. Instead, I got to watch the sun rise from our flight to nowhere - settling fog meant we came home instead. The views were amazing, and roll on the lengthening days. ➖ #sharemewlg #sharemeairnz #airnzshareme #purenz #wintersolstice #kaikouranz #ig_newzealand #earthpixnz #metservice #metservicenz
So today was a bit of a sad day as we said ‘See ya later’ to our lovely chef, Kelly. Kelly has worked at Cafe Encounter for 5 years and today shared her last day with us. Kelly and her family are moving to Auckland for their next big adventure. Best of luck, Kelly, we will miss you but treasure the fun times we had! Including making this boomerang with you! Lots of love and best wishes from your Encounter Family. xx #treatsatcafeencounter #kellyisleavingthecakebehind #bestofluck #kaikouranz #chocolatecake #glittermakeseverythingbetter

Warning: This post may disturb many people, but I am sharing this in the hope that maybe someone knows who did this and will call the New Zealand Police or the Department of Conservation Hotline on 0800 362 468. Someone will know who did this appalling act of Animal Cruelty, and it is possibly a local person in Kaikoura or possibly a person who has been travelling in this area. I hope that the person who did this comes forward, or if you have any information please contact the number I gave. #newzealand #newzealandtour #newzealandtrip #newzealandtourism #newzealandtourist #kaikouranz #kaikoura #spcanz #animalcruelty #docnz #departmentofconservationnz #christchurchnz #christchurch #pictonnz #pictonnewzealand #southislandnz #redbillgull #greymouthnz #queenstownnz #backpackersnewzealand
