A photo essay through Nelson

Nelson, New Zealand is one of those special places branded in my memories from my trip around the country. It was the starting point for my South Island journeys, and the last stop before my multi-day hike through Abel Tasman.

Most importantly, it’s where I met some of the best kinds of people.

The great weather and beautiful blue skies only added to the effect it had on me. It’s not an over exaggeration to say that some of my fondest memories came from my couple of days in the small city.

And so, saving my words for another day, I want to take you on a tour through Nelson from my camera lens.
