In May of 2015, I took a sabbatical to adventure around the South Island of New Zealand. I had made no plans or expectations for this trip, keeping each day and night as a unexpected as the next. In a moth’s time I managed to shot over 6000 photos, 3k of which were of the night sky.
The following is a star filled compilation of photos from the different places I camped and explored during my NZ travels. I shot these with a Nikon D800, with each frame being a 30 second expose. My camera settings varied slightly from night to night, but in general I shot at 14mm, f2.8, with and ISO of ~3200 +/-
