Talofa lava, Kia ora

How is the COVID-19  lock down going for you?  We are surviving, it's a little bit of a roller coaster to be fair.  I'm grateful for technology to help keep kids occupied and to stay connected with other colleagues, friends and family.  Central Otago is a pretty awesome place  to self isolate, particularly now with the stunning autumn colours.   Huge thanks to all those people outside my bubble keeping the world going with providing essential services!

Anyway, I've pulled out some events and action that I've covered in Central Otago over the past 5 years mostly in April.  There's a  bit of rugby but ultimately that's where I started shooting regularly.  I couldn't find much action from April last year with covering other events & have shared those.

Enjoy & Happy Easter/April!
