Upgrade Completed; But still a work in progress!

Hello travelers!


As you can see, we upgraded our forums on Wednesday Oct 15th. We're back up and running, but we are still a work in progress! We'll be renaming things and creating an all around better experience. In the meantime, you can use the forums (the functionality is extremely similar to what you are used to). We hope to be finished tweaking things very shortly. Thank you for your patience; it is appreciated!

    My recent video features scenic vistas of both New Zealand islands, plus adventures by land and sea, with a Maori dance concert, the Kiwi bird, Milford Sound, waterfalls, a sheep show, geysers, jet boating, a glacier, the majesty of Mt Cook, and much more.

    “North and South Kiwi” can be seen on the web with a high speed internet connection.

    This is a free, non-commercial, streaming video on the Windows Media Player. No ads and no strings attached. I still sell absolutely nothing.

    My video site is:

    With any modem you can view the New Zealand gallery of still pictures at:

    There are over 30 of my other free, amateur travel videos on-line including trips to India, China, Russia, Antarctica, Italy, the UK, Japan, Australia, Bali, Africa, Greece, and Turkey; see lions, whales, elephants, or penguins.

    The planet is yours, including my Home Page giant galaxy of still pictures at:

    Haha, I think we took a picture of that exact same kiwi bird! Is that the one in Queenstown? (When we were there, they had decked it out with a rugby jersey. )

      Now we know these giant Kiwis must be in several places. I found a pair while wandering around a small village. I do recall the one in Queenstown, right by the lake.

      The real challenge was photographing actual Kiwis, and I got lucky in Rotorura, at the Rainbow Springs Nature Park.

        Oh, interesting! Guess it's not surprising that those kiwis are scattered about.

        I'm impressed that you got a shot of an actual kiwi. We saw them in a preserve in Queenstown, but they were in a very dark display so we couldn't really get pics.

          For a nocternal bird, any display must be dark enough to convince the Kiwi that night has arrived. Then it's a matter of luck as to whether a Kiwi cooperates with photography by a camera able to shoot in low light. My camcorder produced decent Kiwi shots.

          It's really the bans upon photography that bother me. There were bans against cameras everywhere else that had Kiwis, except for Rainbow Springs Nature Park in Rotorura. Presumably the concern is flash from still cameras. But video doesn't use flash, making those prohibitions silly as to camcorders, not just in New Zealand, but all around the world.
