Unfortunately, I did not have the good fortune to go to New Zealand and take these photographs myself. Lovely Step-daughter #1 vacationed there recently and shared her photos with us. And what gorgeous skies she captured!
I'm sorry to say I don't have information on exactly where these were taken. At least one of these is in Queensland.
