Voted one of the top five places to visit in the world by Lonely Planet, the geographical diversity and startling beauty of New Zealand lures photographers and film makers as well as tourists. "If locations were awarded Oscars, New Zealand would scoop the lot," as a movie reviewer remarked. This book is a photographic celebration of that diverse and very often impressive landscape. Grant Sheehan has recorded his own camera views from Northland to Stewart Island and beyond, to New Zealand's Antarctic territory and her islands in the Southern Ocean. From the road, from the air and at sea, the tranquility and scope of open often remote spaces are captured. The scenery and wildlife shown here underlines why New Zealand is consistently on the global 'must-see' list. And as an extra dimension, the images have been given a striking soundtrack by musician Rhian Sheehan. The CD is included on the facing page.
