– An out of this World Pet Images Retreat – 

After 11,748 mi and about 30h flight time, 12h time zone change (I arrived sooner or later) and stoping in two completely different nations, I arrived in Queenstown, New Zealand. My thirty fourth nation and my fifth continent – doing effectively earlier than my huge birthday (29+).

So right here we go, for an additional Out of this World Pet Images Retreat. This time it was held in New Zealand – known as Barkzealand. And the way may I’ve stated no to flying world wide on a loopy lengthy flight to {photograph} doggies in some of the wonderful nations on this world. Properly I stated sure, so take a look to what we acquired as much as, other than being amazed each single day , how lovely and magical this nation actually is. 

From capturing in quaint little New Zealand villages, to epic mountain prime views as much as roaring rivers. We did all of it. Plus a Sheepdog Journey, to which we are going to come to later. 

First up was a go to in an Apple Orchard and a bit of city known as Cromwell. Cromwell City acquired moved again within the 1990’s to create space for the Clyde Dam. Immediately you’ll be able to nonetheless see among the ruins. So right here we go, among the wonderful canines we photographed on the historic a part of Cromwell. 

Our subsequent journey took us to to the well-known Shot Over River!  The place the place you enter a type of quick white water boats and also you go down a canyon and scream in your life. Properly we didn’t do that 🙂 We opted for a a lot quieter and extra enjoyable (in my eyes) afternoon, photographing doggies on the fringe of the river and showcasing them. 

The river actually was the pawfect backdrop, with its blue colors, wild canyon and mountains within the background. We had a bit of Schnauzer, two Border Collies and likewise a bit of Beagle Pet. I LOVED the Beagle and I feel it was the proper Barka Bairthday current. He was wonderful and we did have extra cuddles then I really took images of him. However then I’m a Beagle mum 🙂 

And naturally we needed to take a Beagle Selfie 😀 

Our subsequent Spotlight was the one all of us waited for. Our epic Mountain High Shoot. We went as much as a bit of spot on the facet of the highway, the place we may see Coronet Peak (1649m), the encompassing peaks, as much as Queenstown. A very breathtaking spot.

Our final shoot was a bit of washed out. Properly there’s rain in paradise. Even so the rain simply added some additional magic to the day and we did the perfect we may to point out simply how lovely Arrowtown may be, within the rain. 


So sure, rain can add a bit of magic to a gray and wet day. And , after each rain, there’s a rainbow to search out. And New Zealand is the county of Rainbows. We did see a pair. 

And with this out Barkzealand Journey ended. Not for all of us, as we had a bit of highway journey deliberate and likewise my journey additionally introduced me to Sydney, Australia.
