Hiking in New Zealand is what inspired my interest in photography. You can spot a newly arrived Australian, they will be parked near the first little waterfall that's within sight of the road. We just don't have water like that. It's completely foreign.
This is the photo that started my photographic adventure, it's taken with a Dick Smith Electronics point and shoot. It drowned on a subsequent hike in NZ, the Routeburn. This was a lunch stop on the Milford Track. This holiday also begins my love of hiking.
