The year was 1999 and it was a dream trip of a lifetime - a visit to New Zealand! I hopped on a plane in Atlanta to San Francisco, then onto Honolulu finally arriving in Auckland. It only took 28 hours with 23 of them in the air. I spent three weeks touring the North and South Islands and meeting some of the nicest people on the planet. Would I go back, in a minute.
For some weird reason I decided to take video of the trip which means the number of still photos is limited. An for some other equally weird reason, I decided to shoot Kodacolor Gold vs. KodaChrome Professional with the latter being a far better film IMHO. Therefore, these scans of the Kodacolor required extensive post-production.

The views were spectacular in Tennessee looking over the Taccoa/Ocoee River!
Time to click for the sky and the leafs, they were incredible in 2018.
