Lake Wakatipu, south island, New Zealand. This shot was taken in May 2010 when the Queenstown-Glenorchy road was temporarily closed by a rockfall. I always think of the Beatles ‘Long & Winding Road’ when I look at it.

It was the day I was to go on a Landscape Photo workshop, and we went by road to a point before the closure, the transferred into launches to go around the blockage and then round the head of the lake by road to Kinloch. In my opinion, the most beautiful area of the south island.

I grabbed this shot because I liked the way the boat’s wake mirrored the road.

The Long & Winding Road (written by Paul McCartney)

The long and winding road that leads to your door,
Will never disappear,
I’ve seen that road before It always leads me here,
leads me to your door.

The wild and windy night the rain washed away,
Has left a pool of tears crying for the day.
Why leave me standing here, let me know the way.

Many times I’ve been alone and many times I’ve cried
Anyway you’ll never know the many ways I’ve tried, but

Still they lead me back to the long and winding road
You left me standing here a long, long time ago
Don’t leave me waiting here, lead me to your door
