I tramp and I take pictures

The Year of the Tramper

The year was 2021. New Zealand still isolated from the rest of the world. Borders closed for most of the year - thus the entire Kiwi backcountry a haven for trampers. Most tracks were empty and huts were available at a short moment's notice. I made the most of the situation and tramped my heart out.
