out there - north
their four-wheel drive adventure across the North Island, Chris Morton and Tony
Bridge, two of this country’s top outdoor photographers, and a group of their
friends, take a trip through some of the North Island’s most spectacular
landscapes. The drive took over two weeks and covered approximately 4000kilometres.
in the urban sprawl of Auckland, they drove to the winterless beauty of the Far
North, before travelling down the west coast and past the astonishing gold sand
dunes above Hokianga Harbour. Across swollen rivers and rolling fields, through
the challenges of the New Zealand terrain and weather, this was a North Island
journey very few get to experience.
This book is in bookshops now
and is a fantastic retelling of their journey.
