This week is Mental Health Awareness Week in New Zealand. Mental health and wellbeing is certainly something has touched many of us, and the idea of this week is to raise awareness and break the stigma of mental health. @nikonnz and the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand ( @mhfnz ) have come together and created a photo challenge for anyone to take part in. Each day has a theme, and the idea is to post a photo which for you reflects that theme, and there are even some great prizes to win! This is today’s theme: Post a photo on how you Keep Learning/Me Ako Tonu in nature today and how it makes you feel. So with that in mind, I thought I would post this photo of my son and I under the stars on the Kaikoura Peninsula on the South Island of New Zealand. It was the end of a 4 day road trip for us. We stood out there under the stars and I pointed out the various features of the Milky Way explaining to him what they were. I called this image Universal Bonding. Follow the link in my bio if you’d like to participate in photo challenge yourself. -------------------------------------------------------------------- #MHAWNZ #nikonnz at Kaikoura, New Zealand


I headed out to the @wellington_newzealand south coast the other night to test the new @nikonnz Z7 mirrorless camera, and I’d have to say I was pleasantly surprised with the low light performance of this camera. This shot is a 30 second exposure at f/4 and ISO 6400 at Wellington, New Zealand


Full Moon Rising | Wellington | New Zealand at Wellington, New Zealand


Cape Palliser is one of the darkest locations in New Zealand and a great place to view the stars. I shot this image last Saturday night out there just before the moon set. You can see the southern cross, and to the left, the larger purple area is the Carina Nebula. The image was shot as two separate exposures - one for the foreground, and one for the sky. I used a star tracker for the sky to capture as much detail as possible. at Cape Palliser

We has such an amazing Saturday night under the star on the @newzealandphotographyworkshops Astrophotography Workshop. It was so clear with so many stars in an epic location. at Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park


It was an incredibly clear and starry night out at Lake Ohau last night on the @newzealandphotographyworkshops Astrophotography Workshop. This was a shot I got of the Galactic Centre of our Milky Way and of course since we are in New Zealand, the Galactic Kiwi. I shot this on the @nikonnz D850 - 35mm focal length, 10 second shutter, f/4.0 aperture and ISO 10,000 at Lake Ohua


Night on the Ridge | Wellington | New Zealand at Wellington, New Zealand


It was always going to be tough to get good eclipse photos from @wellington_newzealand this morning, as the moon was setting and the sun rising as the moon went into full eclipse, but these are my efforts. at Wellington, New Zealand

The Milky Way over Cable Bay near Nelson, New Zealand. I just found out this image has been shortlisted for the 2018 Astronomy Photographer of the Year, so I’m over the moon with that news! It’s a large panoramic image made up of 42 individual images stitched together creating the full sized image. at Cable Bay, New Zealand
