Part 2 of the collection: “Best of Ugly New Zealand Edition South Island (BOUNZESI)”. Have a lovely weekend, y’all, while deciding if the South or the North wins. For me, it’s clear as Lake Wakatipu.
The Beauty of Spiky Roofs
From Palmerston we bring you: THE MOTÖRHEAD OF ROOFS! And more.
Also don’t miss the whole spectacle in Pretend-o Motion™ on Google Maps: Google Maps Location.

The Beauty of Party Ice. Wait… what?!
Tim Grubb, the mastermind behind the refreshingly intelligent blog “Tourism Trends”, sent us this somewhat bizarre shot, combining many all-time Kiwi favourites. Namely gravel, neon paint, gas-guzzling cars… – and don’t get me started on the driving skills. Thanks, Tim!

The Beauty of Cromwell’s Monster Fruits
Everybody who has ever traveled New Zealand’s South Island knows them: Cromwell’s crazy fruits. Still, you wouldn’t believe how hard it was to finally find in Marilyn Moffat a friendly traveller and photographer that allowed me to bring you this delicious Kiwi speciality. Thanks, Marilyn, also in the name of the worldwide Ugly New Zealand fanclub fanbase readers reader!

The Beauty of Dog… Statues. Huh?
Merry Christmas! Dog monument next to Taeiri Gorge rail tracks. Half way between Dunedin and Middlemarch.
Hold the press! Update! Reader Snuff provided perplexing new research! Firstly, a link/reminder to the fabulous “faithful dog Hachikō”, featured in two very touching movies. And secondly, and perhaps even more importantly, a great new close-up of Susan.
The Beauty of Dunedin
Today, without further ado, three breathtakingly beautiful shots of Dunedin, also known as the last pit stop before… Invercargill. Touching once again the question if someone’s beauty may be somebody else’s uglyness.
The Beauty of Otago
The friendly people of Totally Wired, Sharon Guytonbeck and John Ransley, sent us a stunning example of what happens when a neighbour with landscaping ambitions gets ahold of a 30-ton digger. Our second – more or less – authentic landscape photo! More on that topic in the post above…
