NELSON, TASMAN & MARLBOROUGH
The Nelson, Tasman and Marlborough areas have a bit of everything. Stunning beaches, incredible mountains, rolling hills and gorgeous lakes, and home to 3 National Parks being the Nelson Lakes, Abel Tasman and Kahurangi National Park. The diversity is incredible and these places all have beautiful places to create a New Zealand Photograph. I hope you enjoy my journey through these areas as a New Zealand Landscape Photographer .. If you are interested in prints or purchasing images please visit my print store or contact me.
My first trip to the Nelson region was back in 2015 when I was visiting family and managed to get out to a few Nelson Photography spots in between my holiday. I was able to visit the beautiful Nelson Lakes, a Lake Rotoiti sunrise in particular, which absolutely started by love affair with the Nelson region.
The Nelson Tasman region is one of the sunniest regions in New Zealand and is well known for its beautiful beaches, lakes, mountains and craft markets and good vibes! Nelson and the Tasman Region is the geographic centre of New Zealand, sitting near the top of the South Island.
Some of the most beautiful Nelson Photography spots include St Arnaud and the Nelson Lakes, Lake Rotorua and Lake Rotoiti, the Janie Sneddon shipwreck in Motueka, Split Apple Rock, The Abel Tasman Track, Wharariki Beach, Farewell Spit, Kaiteretere Beach, Waimarama Sanctuary, Cable Bay, The Boulder Bank Nelson, Marahau, the list goes on!
Although I haven't been able to visit all of these places, as mentioned above a Lake Rotoiti sunrise photo is a must for your New Zealand photography portfolio. I have also managed to travel up further north for a Wharariki Beach sunrise on a few occasions and I highly recommend staying up there for a day or two and exploring the coastline.
I have also been lucky enough to take a scenic flight over the Abel Tasman and Kahurangi National Park which was an incredible experience. The remarkable diversity of alpine and coastal landscapes incorporating three national parks (Abel Tasman, Kahurangi and Nelson Lakes) was an experience not to forget from up in the air.
While I was visit Nelson I also drove over the ranges to nearby Blenheim where I hiked for 3 hours to the top of Mount Stokes for a magical sunrise over the Marlborough Sound. A steady incline and a bit of a slog up to the top, a Mount Stokes sunrise is another must if you're visiting the Marlborough region while exploring this area.
I hope by sharing these NZ images of the Nelson Tasman region it might inspire you to come and explore Nelson Photography for yourself.
