I've been dreaming about my first proper road trip for a very long time now, but nothing could've prepared me for just how incredible it was going to be! There was something quite special about living out of a van for two weeks... Driving from one adventure to the next, being able to kick back and put the kettle on whenever and where ever! It was complete freedom and it enabled me to capture some stellar photographs!
Shooting sunrise, sunset and all the hours in between pushed me to expand my photographic toolkit, improving in ways other than my usual long exposure seascapes, capturing every element of the trip - something that you're sure to see over on ByTheCompass' Instagram, and something that I'm excited to do more of for sure! Some of my favourite images of the month encompass that learning curve and transition to some extent, whilst others simply show just how incredible New Zealand was. Turquoise lakes, towering mountain ranges and impressive glacial rivers - it was NATURE at it's best!
