New Zealand: Mountains to the Sea stands apart as a rich portrayal of a country with landscapes unlike those of any other country in the world. A country crowned with mountains whose peaks thrust white snowfields into clear blue skies, and whose flanks and foothills are cloaked in rainforest, or frame fiords of such majesty that visitors can only fall silent. Rivers rage through frightening gorges, then flow peacefully between gentle hills clothed in clean pastures grazed year-round by contented sheep and cattle. Nestled among the peaks and valleys are tranquil lakes, fringed with luxuriant bush. At the coast, sweeps of superb sandy beach spread between bold rocky headlands washed by restless seas. Other countries have some or even many of these scenic wonders, but only New Zealand has them all in such close proximity. The superb photographs capture the uniqueness and grandeur, the beauty and drama, of New Zealand's magnificent landscapes, from its lofty mountains to its dramatic coasts.
