One thing I love about NZ is the Kiwi ability to think ahead to the future...And embrace it! While the rest of the world seems to be in panic mode about how to regulate and/or license the rapidly advancing UAV/drone technology market, little old NZ is sensibly doing the right thing...
Here's the latest news on the use of UAV's, or drones as they are more commonly known, in particular using them beyond the line of sight for farming and forestry management, etc.
It also mentions that there have been over 160 requests via the Airshare website (www.airshare.co.nz) to use UAV's in controlled airspace, very proud to say that about 4 of those requests were from me for aerial photography here in Hawkes Bay.

Three weeks ago I started to shoot a series of aerial images capturing the progress and construction of the new NZTA roundabout at the start of State Highway 2, at the intersection of Railway Road, Te Aute Road and Pakipaki Road just outside Hastings.
The construction works are due to take place over a 20 week period, with aerial images being taken every two weeks.
Here are a few shots from my first two visits to the site...
