Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

New Zealand from Above finds photographer David Wall in the air capturing all aspects of the landscape, from mountains, coasts and national parks to towns, cities and ports. From up high the Land of the Long White Cloud takes on a beauty all of its own and reveals secrets hidden from those on the ground - pristine coastal coves accessed only by sea; sunlight glinting off the filigree channels of a braided river; snow-covered volcanic cones; bush embracing like a discarded rug the crumpled contours of the land; sweeping golden statements of sandy bays, freckled with the blazing red of pohutukawa; the breathtaking spectacle of the Main Divide; ordered stands of pine plantations; roads snaking through gorges; the geometric quilt of cultivated plains. Each photograph is informatively and imaginatively captioned.
