Lake Wanaka and its environs are like something out of a fantasy dreamscape.
I was on my way back from a tiring trek through Rob Roy Glacier, which was somewhat of a disappointment as there were very little photographic opportunities due to weather. When this fiery spectacle appeared before me, the disappointment of the uneventful and long day vanished in an instant.
An unexpected reward for a failure. Love it.
