During our travels across New Zealand we also spent a couple of nights in Wellington.  My wife’s love of all things Lord of the Rings ensured a visit to the Weta Workshop (we also visited Hobbiton earlier in our trip) where some of the life like creature pictures below were taken.  We also spent some time exploring the city including riding the funicular Wellington Cable car up to the Botanical Gardens to capture some scenic view of the city and harbor as well as exploring some of the many amazing and free playgrounds throughout the city.  These images were taken on June 15th 2018.
