Appreciating the beauty of the landscape is just not enough for some people.......


.......the original AJ Hackett Bungy Jump.  Hackett is the original inventor of the 'bungy jump'.

While others prefer a very fast ride on a jet boat coming within inches of the cliffs and doing 365 degree spins.  With almost every adrenalin producing adventure invented by man available, Queenstown, New Zealand claims to be the adventure capital of the world!
P.S.  For those who are wondering, no color saturation of the water.  It was this color even on a cloudy day!

Great shots freezing the action.

I had no idea New Zealand was so diverse. I was thinking it was all tropics. These pictures are great. The water is so green. (Are you adding lots of saturation in photoshop?)

As beautiful as this country is,I would see no reason to jump off a bridge or speed down a river. I guess it's different strokes for different folks. :)

Karen, great shots! Don't know why anyone would jump off a bridge. Nuts! I would try the boat ride though!

This is just amazing. Is that the same buggy jump that your brother and his son took a couple of years ago?
