Today was our last full day in New Zealand and we wanted to try a few of the traditional tourist things before the long flight home.
After a good night’s sleep and a quick oatmeal breakfast, I was charged up and ready to get going on this day. I wasn’t expecting super pictures because I knew the times of day that we would be hitting our stops wouldn’t give us great light, but just being in those places would be a real treat. We were going to see the other two of the top three places I wanted to visit on this trip.
For a day called Black Friday, it sure did start off with a beautiful sunrise. I missed the beginning of it but screamed out the back door of our room and grabbed a few shots as the sky lit up. It turned the mountains opposing the sunrise all shades of gorgeous. Purple mountain majesty indeed!
