Beautiful Day for Photography

Panoramic view of LAKE WAKATIPU (Maori for place where the demon lies) and QUEENSTOWN town centre from Skyline complex on top of BOB'S PEAK at 790 metres above sea level. The blue-coloured mountain range, THE REMARKABLES, is a popular skifield in OTAGO. Lake Wakatipu is a glacier lake and is the third largest lake in New Zealand. The Lothlorien sequences in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Rings were filmed in Queenstown. This lake has an unusual rhythmic rise and fall in water level, roughly 12 cm every 5 minutes. Average water temperature is 11.5 C. Locate the paraglider on right hand side of picture.
