Many of these golden-hour scenes were captured across New Zealand from the far North to the deep South throughout 2016.  The time-lapse shows the contrasting change and the effect of light and shadow. Also observed are the effects of mother nature on her landscape with changes in weather, volcanic activity, and rare display of the Aurora Australis.  This movie was selected as a finalist in the 2016 New Zealand Geographic Photographer of The Year Competition in the time-lapse category.
