At the headwaters of Lake Wakatipu, Kinloch is the jump off spot for many of the famous tramps of New Zealand. It is also a photographer’s paradise, with magical light on the lake almost every morning. In this shot the steely blues of the night are giving way to the pink and gold promise of a lovely new day.
Shot with Canon1DsMkII and 16-35 lens @16mm, f7.1, 1sec, 22 May 2010 @ 0523.
Some PP such straightened, dust spotted, and adjusted colour balanced but nothing added or subtracted.
