As usual it has been a while since I have posted but the last few months have been hectic including the day job and trying to fit in as many adventures as I can around it while even trying to retain some family life as well.. Too many hobbies and not enough time.
Ski Season is almost over and slowly transitioning back into bikes but before that happened we tried to tick off a few skiing missions we had had planned for a while. One was to head up Mt Sibbald in behind Tekapo in NZ.
We four wheel drove up the Macauley valley and walked to our campsite then toured up and got some nice shaded wind-blown powder!
Amazing mission in some amazing country – and there are a couple more images below from some other miscellaneous missions around the Canterbury Club fields and Queenstown for your viewing pleasure
And finally just a little video testing out the GoPro Hero 7 – the hyper smooth function is amazing No more gimbal needed which cuts down on the gear I need to carry. Check out the video below , riding the new tracks at the Christchurch Adventure park.
A friend of mine has spent the last couple years working on a Resto Mod of a 1965 Pontiac Laurentian and he has finally finished it. Check out some photos of the finished product and a little video I made for him to showcase it.
Its been a month or so since we last posted but we have had a busy month and the weather is starting to change to winter here in NZ so the bike content will slow down for a bit.
Major project for the month was filming a new video for the Christchurch Adventure Park to showcase how much of an epic spot they have there!
Check it out below:
We also went and shot a pile of photos up there as my bike has been broken!
Check them out below:
Last but not least as I mentioned earlier in this post the weather is changing and winter is kicking in, so we ventured out for a look and got some powdery goodness. There is only one photo from the day as it was to good to stop but check it below:
The good people at Photo and Video International and Fujifilm NZ let me borrow the Fuji GFX50s medium format camera for the week. This camera is absolutely unreal, the dynamic range and detail is incredible. I couldn’t post all of the photos I shot below as I have sent some off for publications, but there are a range of images I shot through the week below, including Ben riding some of the Lyttleton MTB Trails and some scenic shots from Coleridge.
Got involved with the Gravity Canterbury dig day up on the port hills the other day and then we filmed a quick spur of the moment edit and snapped a couple of photos. Check them all out below. Thanks to Hutt Shuttles for providing the shuttles! And as abonus a couple of shots from a trip to Queenstown last year that didnt end up getting used for anything.
