On The Way To Glenorchy, New Zealand

Don Smith (California, United States) on 29 December 2016 in Landscape & Rural.

Number 3 on my list of my 12 Favorites for 2016 was captured in early July while scouting for an upcoming workshop on the South Island of New Zealand outside of Queenstown. I saw this scene unfold as I was driving towards Glenorchy. The radiance and warmth of the light over Lake Wakatipu (the third largest lake in New Zealand) took my breath away and I quickly pulled the car over and set my tripod and camera. Gary Hart and I will be finishing our scouting this summer (New Zealand's winter) and will be offering the workshop in late June/early July 2018. If you would like to be added to the list to be first notified, please send me an email: don [AT] donsmithphotography [DOT] com. Also, to see my other images on my top 12 list, please CLCIK HERE.

In a sense, this truly IS an "Otherworldly" scene, Don....this bottom half of our globe is rarely seen by Northern Hemisphere types but by those who live down under or those who are fortunate enough to go,,,,,What a beautiful and mystical scene this is. I LOVE that water....Just beautiful, Don. Good luck on the planning ;-)
