New Zealand is a country of landmarks - as revealed in this stunning collection of images by photographer Rob Suisted. The most obvious and enduring landmarks are the visible result of the geological processes that continue to shape the land today, and provide dramatic highlights such as volcanoes and glaciers, towering alpine peaks and wild coastal beaches. From the lighthouse at Cape Reinga at the tip of the North Island to the giant links of Maui's legendary anchor chain at Lee Bay on Stewart Island, there is a delightful mix of images that show New Zealand's scenic splendour and identify the unique character of its people. Divided into seventeen regions, each prefaced with an introduction touching on both historical and contemporary points of interest, the informative captions describe architecture, memorials, manmade monuments and dramatic landmarks in a country of contrast and quirkiness.
