My Dad and I have been planning this trip for some time now so it's great to finally do a hike back in the forrest that began my love for nature. The Mataraua Forest is near the farm where I grew up and is one of the first forrest's my Dad took our family in. We did this trip to hang out with each other and to capture some photos. I love this forrest. Enjoy the images below:

My Dad and I 

I'm a small town New Zealand boy who grew up on a farm with a Dad who showed me life through a lens. He had a Pentax Film Camera that captured my eye and I've loved photography ever since.
