Lake Wakitipu, Queenstown 1

I thought there was something a bit mystical about this light...


Thanks for everyone who still comes to see this little rather distorted picture and it's still getting never ceases to astonish me in its unpredictability! If I can ever work out how to get these onto flickr in a larger format without distorting it much more I will do so as soon as I can. :)

    Thanks all - it's surprising how this one keeps drawing people in -it's one of my favourites.

    @ Ivan - it was shot on standard kodak advantix film if my memory is correct, using a hand held P&S! I remember being sat on the shoreline thinking that the light was truly exceptional but being uncertain if the camera was up to the challenge. So I just lined up the composition, held my breath and took it. I'm glad you like it, but if I am truly honest it was more a case of luck than judgement then.

    When I got home I had the film scanned & transferred to CD's.

    That lighting and those clouds are so impressive! I've never had the fortune (misfortune?) to see it that stormy over Wakatipu so this is really beautiful!
