new years eve portrait queenstown on top of a mountain in the rain

2012 in Queenstown ended with cold wind and rain but that didn’t stop us from heading up a mountain to finish the year with photos! Huda and Zhafri are here from Malaysia and to say they felt the cold is a bit of an understatement. We had to keep jumping back in the car with the heater on so we could feel our hands again and Huda’s dress was blowing around like crazy.
Happy new year – if 2013 is even a little bit as good as 2012 has been, it will be very awesome.

Days like this, I really can’t believe how good my job is. Yovi and Victor are on a Middle Earth tour and while in Queenstown they took me up in a hot air balloon with them! It was a wonderful experience that I can’t wait to repeat. There was the most awesome moment when Yovi and Victor shut their eyes and held one another and we were completely surrounded by clouds. I was looking through the camera photographing them and when we all looked around, we gasped and the view took our breath away. We went to 7000 ft above Dalefield and Arrowtown. Thanks for looking after us so well Sunrise Balloons and Jason Law for taking some shots from the ground for me.
