News / In 2008 I decided to visit New Zealand
In 2008 I decided to visit New Zealand for a couple of weeks to be sure that The Lord of the Rings was really shot there :) The way to New Zealand was very long and took more than 24 hours, and I had to change a plane twice: in Dubai and in Sidney.
On my way back I decided to stay for a night in Sidney, because it is one of the most beautiful cities of the planet, and this visit didn’t require getting Australian visa. In the morning before leaving for the airport I found the contacts of a helicopter operator in a phone directory and shot several panoramas in the harbour near the world-known Opera House. It was two years ago but only now we have got time to work with the materials of those photo-session.
That time we still couldn't shoot the high resolution spheres that is why Sidney shooting is represented in its usual quality.
