    – An out of this World Pet Pictures Retreat – 

    After 11,748 mi and about 30h flight time, 12h time zone change (I arrived sooner or later) and stoping in two totally different international locations, I arrived in Queenstown, New Zealand. My thirty fourth nation and my fifth continent – doing properly earlier than my large birthday (29+).

    So right here we go, for an additional Out of this World Pet Pictures Retreat. This time it was held in New Zealand – known as Barkzealand. And the way might I’ve stated no to flying around the globe on a loopy lengthy flight to {photograph} doggies in one of the vital wonderful international locations on this world. Properly I stated sure, so take a look to what we received as much as, aside from being amazed each single day , how stunning and magical this nation actually is. 

    From taking pictures in quaint little New Zealand villages, to epic mountain high views as much as roaring rivers. We did all of it. Plus a Sheepdog Journey, to which we are going to come to later. 

    First up was a go to in an Apple Orchard and slightly city known as Cromwell. Cromwell City received moved again within the 1990’s to create space for the Clyde Dam. Immediately you possibly can nonetheless see a few of the ruins. So right here we go, a few of the wonderful canine we photographed on the historic a part of Cromwell. 

    Our subsequent journey took us to to the well-known Shot Over River!  The place the place you enter a type of quick white water boats and also you go down a canyon and scream to your life. Properly we didn’t do that 🙂 We opted for a a lot quieter and extra enjoyable (in my eyes) afternoon, photographing doggies on the fringe of the river and showcasing them. 

    The river actually was the pawfect backdrop, with its blue colors, wild canyon and mountains within the background. We had slightly Schnauzer, two Border Collies and in addition slightly Beagle Pet. I LOVED the Beagle and I feel it was the proper Barka Bairthday current. He was wonderful and we did have extra cuddles then I truly took pictures of him. However then I’m a Beagle mum 🙂 

    And naturally we needed to take a Beagle Selfie 😀 

    Our subsequent Spotlight was the one all of us waited for. Our epic Mountain Prime Shoot. We went as much as slightly spot on the facet of the street, the place we might see Coronet Peak (1649m), the encircling peaks, as much as Queenstown. A really breathtaking spot.

    Our final shoot was slightly washed out. Properly there’s rain in paradise. Even so the rain simply added some further magic to the day and we did the very best we might to indicate simply how stunning Arrowtown could be, within the rain. 


    So sure, rain can add slightly magic to a gray and wet day. And , after each rain, there’s a rainbow to search out. And New Zealand is the county of Rainbows. We did see a pair. 

    And with this out Barkzealand Journey ended. Not for all of us, as we had slightly street journey deliberate and in addition my journey additionally introduced me to Sydney, Australia. However extra about this later. For now I might like to share with you all what makes the Barka Adventures so particular – its the Barkas.
