Lake Wanaka is located in the Otago region of New Zealand, at an altitude of 300 metres. The town services the two main ski fields close by being Cardrona and Treble Cone. It’s name is Māori, a corruption of Oanaka (‘The place of Anaka’, a local tribal chief)
I shot this during a trip to Lake Wanaka in New Zealand. The tree in Lake Wanaka is home to a number of birds that seek a place to chill out for the night. At first I was angry as I thought they were going to jump around and move the tree during my long exposures, however they were pretty much perfectly still which made for an amazing scene.
I can’t wait to go back to this location, it is so amazing!!!
