EXPERIENCES

SOUTH EASTERN COAST & DUNEDIN

Late last fall (that's April-May in New Zealand), Jessica Linderman, aka Jess the Wanderess, set off in a Off Track Rentals vehicle to explore the south east coast of New Zealand's South Island. Her travels included beach-side camping and surfing in the Catlins and exploring Dunedin city and coast. These are her images.

To travel is to feel, to be present, to be afraid, to be exhilarated, to question values, to experiment, to connect, to create, to learn, to love, to evolve...
 "While at the Caitlins I was invited to a bonfire on the beach and was setting up a long exposure shot of the stars when I noticed something green in the sky. The light grew brighter and realizing what was happening, I shouted to the group and we all ran closer to the water to watch the show unfold: The Southern Lights! The lights waved and danced in the sky for nearly two hours, shimmering on the ocean water before us. It was a completely unexpected encounter with an aurora and I feel so lucky to have witnessed such a rare phenomenon. Truly.so.darn.beautiful."
