Our first day on the road led us to Lake Tekapo. With a great dump of snow the scenery was even more beautiful than it already is. The Turquoise water of the lake glowing against the white snow and the equally blue sky was just ethereal.

    My shot of Lake Tekapo is from the other side of the church down near the shoreline, because the light was grey and dull everywhere else at that time:
    This looks like a different place with the snow and late afternoon light- truly wonderful.

  • Ben – it was just fantastic in the snow – really changed the atmosphere and the blue lake against the stark white made it glow even more.

    Yess! I’d seen this place shot in summer by Robert (first comment) – this is an entirely new perspective on it. GORGEOUS light!
