Sublime Vision by Michael John

Currently unavailable for purchase

Situated on the shores of Lake Tekapo is the Church of the Good Shepherd.

This view was captured looking out through the windows of the small church.

The cross on the altar forms a nice focal point, contrasting with the lake and mountains behind.

Lake Tekapo, South Island, New Zealand.

I live in Australia and enjoy bushwalking in the great outdoors, especially the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.

My photographic interests are pretty much related to Australian landscapes, rustic Australia, historic Australia, Australian wildlife, flora, fauna, birds, etc. Guess I love the country I was born and live in.
