Mt. Ruapehu Timelapse

Mt Ruapehu Timelapse from Jared Brandon Productions on Vimeo.

Sometimes Facebook can be more than just a time waster/procrastinating tool, it can be a place of discovering cool things - Exhibit A: this Mt. Ruapehu Timelapse video. Now I know there are a lot of timelapse videos floating around the blogosphere lately but this one is particularly sentimental to me since it takes place in a country where I spent most of my life ;) This awesome video is by Jared Brandon.

Land of the Long White Cloud

I will soon be hopping on one of those bad boys in the top picture and jet setting off to little ol' Aotearoa (aka Land of the Long White Cloud, aka New Zealand)!

All of the gorgeous images above are by Andrew - a New Zealand based photographer who runs Cuba Gallery. See more images on his Flickr. Andrew also runs a Lightroom Tutorials blog where you can see before and afters of how he manipulates his images from the seemingly mundane to one that glows.
