Traveling on an early morning with the rising sun skipping off the surface of the Remarkable Mountains near Queenstown, South Island, New Zealand, this winding road reflected the light, enhancing the shape of the curve nicely

Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.

    Complete with blue guardrails, too! Such barren land! Is it altitude or desert?

  • pete
    part of it was altitude, the other part is that the Kiwis are on a campaign to deforest all non-indigenous plants and trees.
