Brendon writes: I’ve had these gathering dust on an old website of mine since Easter 2000. We went for a Easter holiday trip from Hamilton, down past Whakapapa and on to Wellington, looking for LOTR sets on the way. The Whakapapa shots were taken from the same spot, one looking down towards Happy Valley where there was a big boom hanging over the valley itself and there were cables everywhere. No filming though, everyone must have been having a holiday for Easter. The same at the quarry, no one there at all. I really wish we’d tried for a closer look.
