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. Where else in the world...? Mountains that thrust eternally white snowfields into startlingly clear blue skies; Mountains also of fire, that are centrepieces of a thermal wonderland; densely clothed in green rain forests; Tranquil lakes, surrounded by mountains or fringed with luxuriant bush; Rivers that rage through frightening gorges, then flow peacefully between gentle hills; Clean pasture, on river flats and hills, grazed year-round by contented flocks of sheep and herds of cattle; Sweeps of superb sandy beach, and bold rocky headlands washed by restless seas; Fiords of such majesty that visitors to them can only fall silent. Other countries have some or even many of these scenic wonders. But only in New Zealand are such varied landscapes concentrated in such a small area and so easily accessible to visitors. The superb photographs of New Zealand Mountains to the Sea capture the uniqueness and grandeur, the beauty and drama, of New Zealand's magnificent landscapes, from its lofty mountains to its dramatic coasts.
