Recently had a full day helicopter flight on a Bell 206L, landing at several beaches, and finally finishing up visiting NZ's top fish and chip takeaways for a good feed!

Unfortunately, half way through the day I lost my relatively new Lee filter holder and Hitech filter out the window!

Small price to pay for a truly stunning series. I'm jealous.

NZ looks really incredible, particularly the first picture. It's on the short list of places to go for sure. Too bad about the filter. Hope you can find a replacement down there.

Keep up the great work.

Thanks all!
Just been in Sydney the past 3 days, unable to respond, now back in Melbourne with internet access.

I already have the replacement filter/holder from UK, only 80 pounds to replace.. small cost, compared to the stunning views we saw :)

I love coming on here and seeing views of New Zealand I would otherwise never see, and these ones are great.
