New Zealand Expedition: Photo Gallery

The photography element of the New Zealand Expedition was a success. Almost everyone who participated took a camera. Some people chose manual cameras, the sensible ones used automatics (sorry Jezza, couldn't resist). Panoramic and disposable cameras were also taken. The collection of photos is diverse. There are lots of people shots, action shots, peak climbs, summit shots, and scenic landscapes.
