“Horizon. The space or line where the sky meets the earth. So many places where the sky meets the earth around the world, and millions of interactions between two elements. It can be water, a city skyline, a forest, a wasteland, a desert, a sunset outside your bedroom window. Is there a particular horizon which speaks to you?” -Weekly Photo Challenge
I’ll take on this one: “places where the sky meets the earth around the world“. And not only meeting of sky and earth; they are stunningly beautiful too.
For this challenge, let me take you to New Zealand, the country that we knew most part of it to be down below sea level but protected by beautiful mountains all around to keep it afloat in the remote South Pacific Ocean. New Zealand includes the Antipodes Islands, Auckland Islands, Bounty Islands, Campbell Island, Chatham Islands, and Kermadec Islands and has a coastline measuring 15,134 km.
It’s climate is temperate with regional contrasts, it is a mostly mountainous landmass with some large coastal plains which vary from sea level to a high of 3,754 M for Aoraki (Mt. Cook.)
Now, I think, we are prepared for this tour in some of New Zealand’s finest where sky meets earth. Here is what I have for you dear friends:
I am blessed to have some few friends who work in New Zealand and they tell me a lot about the thrill of visiting the major islands around the country, which they say, is like going from one country to another. Their stories trigger the urge in me all the more to go and visit this dream destinations of sort.
New Zealand is one of the few countries I am so direly wanting to visit. I really hope one day I will go and see one or more of these majestic paradises on earth and savor the lofty horizons up there.
