Stunning Queenstown to Busy Auckland

Hello IFC!

A week ago I did a flight from the tourist hotspot of Queenstown to New Zealand’s biggest city of Auckland. The departure out of Queenstown airport is absolutely stunning, and this occasion was no different. It is always a nice approach into Auckland, and the final over Manukau is very nice. I hope you like my pictures!

Thank you for viewing, I used Mix and Lens Distortions to edit this pics, I would recommend checking them out :)

Finally before I end, I would like give my condolences if you or someone you know have been effected by the devastating Australian wildfires, all of us across the pond are thinking of you and hope are safe in these troublesome times
