Aerial - I by octane2 Aerial - I by octane2
As per the norm with my deviation submissions, please click here to save your retinas, and view the image on a black background, thereby preserving shadow detail.

Gentle morning light radiates throughout the Mackenzie Basin. The sun was at an altitude of just 11.3 degrees at the time this image was made, which provides for the softness in the quality of light prevalent in the image.

In the distance is the beautiful turquoise Lake Tekapo. Lake Tekapo has a surface area of roughly 83 square kilometres and sits approximately 700 metres above sea level.

The lake is being fed by the pristine glacial Godley River, seen in the image proper, as a network of braided twists and knots. The water in the lake has flowed 30 kilometres south from the Mount Cook region in the Southern Alps.

Meema,

Unfortunately, no. Perhaps I'll do that walk next time I'm in the area.

This was taken from the air during a scenic flight.

Cheers.

23-tiny-wishes,

I wish, too.

You're in Invercargill? I only went through there briefly earlier this year. I think I stopped off at the famous coffee shop and to get petrol. I was on my way to Franz Josef, the long way around, as the roads were all closed due to the ridiculous rain you guys had!

I'd love to go back there and spend some more time around that area and go exploring.

Cheers.

Regards,
H

Yeah, Invers, where it pours most of the time. It's been miserable for a week. Hailing, blowing a polar gale, raining. And today it's SUNNY!! THE SKY IS BLUE!! :la: Cool! Wow, that IS the long way around...-_-;

You should! The scenery is really lovely on a nice day. The Catlins are really nice, even on a stormy day. If you're ever down this way again, you should definitely go to the petrified forest. There's normally a seal or two on the beach down there ;)

See ya 'round! :hug:
Keep up the awesome photography!
