Wallpaper April 2010

For your free wallpaper-calendar for the month of April, I’ve chosen a photo that has been taken precisely in that very month one year ago during my trip to amaaaaazing ‘kiwi-land’: New Zealand!   Guys, the stunning beauty of that country seriously blew my mind. Mother Nature in New Zealand has so much energy and is so full of power like I have not experienced it anywhere else in the world before.  Yep, Kiwi-Land  is truly a unique paradise and absolutely breathtaking!

This shot was taken in Glenrochy, a cute little town very near ‘adrenaline-capital’ Queenstown, at the northern end of Lake Wakatipu on New Zealand’s stunning South Island.

Luca Soulus a local kitesurfer took me to that very spot. Glenorchy is one of the windiest places in the world and I will never forget the sick fun ‘rodeo’ I had there on that lake in about 35-40 knots 🙂

The local kite-gang is lovely and I immediately made soooo many new friends!

My trip to New Zealand that took me 14.000kms in a campervan pretty much all around the South island as well as the North island certainly was one of THE best in my career, yep, I  truly l u v e d  every second of it.

Check out my already published articles about that once-in-a-lifetime-trip to kiwi-land, split into two parts: Part 1, the South island and Part 2, the North island. The English version also already has been published, though, I still need to upload it into my portfolio 🙂   Will soon let you know once it’s done…

But most importantly first of all, scroll down and download your free wallpaper-calendar in the resolution that fits your screen.

Have fun & pls. drop me an email anytime… love to get your feedback and always happy to answer any questions!
Carpe Diem
