Photos: 20 Of Our Favourite Views

Whether it’s captivating cityscapes or breathtaking vistas, Open2view’s photographers get to work among the best views in New Zealand and Australia.

A great view can really make a property. It’s little wonder the owners of a Wellington apartment, whose sweeping harbour views were blocked by a four-metre-high wooden fence, took the matter to court. They won the battle and were awarded $72,500 this week.

With that in mind, we asked our talented team of photographers to show us some of the best views they’ve spotted from the decks, windows, gardens and skies of the properties they photograph.

Take a look at the stunning results in the gallery below.

Imagine having those views from your “office”? Well you could! Find out more about our franchise opportunities across New Zealand and Australia.

Photos: New Zealand and Australia – the autumn collection

For this blog post, you may need a nice tall glass of quality wine.

Aah, that’ll do nicely.

The eagle-eyed among you may have noticed that wine is of Australian vintage. Now, about that:

Open2view is a special company in that we’re New Zealand born and bred but have spread our wings to a whole lot of other nations too – Australia, Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom.

This means, from time to time, there will be posts here with a multi-regional flavour. This shift from a varietal site to more of a blend will, we assure you, provide you with a fuller-bodied experience.

To prove we aren’t straying far from our roots, here’s a photo of Mt Egmont/Taranaki:

The above are just two of many photos sent to me at Open2view Global HQ when I asked the team for some autumn pics to show off this most underrated of seasons.

Check out the best of the rest below (click on any photo to get the gallery rolling), and see why no one does autumn quite as well as Australasia – and no one captures it quite like Open2view.
