Location: Otago, South Island, New Zealand
This location has been on my heart for a while. I was in Queenstown on business and travelled to witness the beauty of this very special place. The road was fairly impressive, although during the winter months it is icy and fairly narrow in sections.
Nothing could have prepared me for what was before me. The fence on either side of the gravel road typifies country living, whilst the mountain in the background is commanding.
The lake to the left of the road was completely frozen. Birds and ducks walked on its solid surface. I stood alongside my vehicle speechless at the significance of the beauty. The azure sky, with wintery landscape conditions lends itself to something extraordinary.
