WETA visit was a highlight of the trip.

Very nice image 10


This is a miniature set for a SciFi show done by the New Zealand Weta Studios. I climbed up on a ladder near the set and shot it with my iPhone. The whole set was about 8 feet across as I remember. This is only a part of it.

btw, if you ever in Welligton, make it a point to visit Weta Workshop and Weta Studios. SO Cool!

Ok, that's cool. Looking forward to a description from you about this. Loved that show and always thought they could have done so much more with the concept. I like to think that Moonbase Alpha evolved from the moonbase in the previous Gerry Anderson series, UFO.

Intriguing photograph and subject. Great shot, great subject. I wonder what it actually is ...

I gave this a 7 (earlier). It's fun to explore.

Amazing, blew me away. I am assuming you used a drone, this is a WOW image. 10
