This picture was taken in a park near Queenstown with the Remarkables range of mountains as a backdrop. The point of view is where Peter Jackson shot the scene of the people of Edoras fleeing to Helm's deep in the movie The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. The line of extras moved from behind the lake and along the path beside where LC is sitting, towards the camera.


It took me about an hour to get this shot as the band of cloud was covering the whole of the Remarkables range. There was no view behind the lake at all. LC was patient enough to wait around with me for the clouds to clear enough to get this shot. A little write-up of this shot can be found here.
