Lake Ohau below the Southern Alps of New Zealand
The Story of "A River's Journey"
This view from up high reveals a landscape that is truly New Zealand, as the long journey from the summits of the Southern Alps twists and wraps its way down to the stunning-blue waters of Lake Ohau.
This shot was conceived after some time spent studying Google Earth and discovering the braided rivers that fed into Lake Ohau. Whie we could predict the landscape, we were gratefully gifted with the dappled, golden light that really took the scene from beautiful to jaw-dropping.
