Nearly one year on and I’m still thinking about the beauty that is South Island, otherwise known as Te Waipounamu. It was definitely a trip that has been on my bucket list for years and getting to experience it for two weeks was really a dream come true.
My main intention for the trip was to really immerse myself with the great outdoors so instead of my bulky dSLRs, I brought along the Sony RX100IV which weighed less than 300gm. So yes, major difference from carrying around a dSLR which would’ve been 5 times heavier LOL!
Words can’t describe how majestic the views were. But I’m glad that I did take snapshots throughout for when I look back on these photos, I’m reminded how elated I felt then. So humbled and grateful to have had the opportunity to explore bits of South Island. Will definitely return there sometime in the future and get more hikes done!
For those who are keen to know, these photos were shot straight out of camera and the only editing done was resized for web and cropping. They looked a bit sharper before I resized them so slightly sharpening them may have been something I should’ve done as well during the slight editing process :p Thanks again Sony Malaysia for the great lil powerhouse that is the RX100IV!
