late afternoon light
Sometimes on a nor'west day, in the latter part of the afternoon, the sun will drop below the cloud embankment (nor'west arch) and provide some great light. I was lucky enough to encounter these circumstances when I was at Tekapo a few weeks ago.
The above building is called the Church of the Good Shepherd. Every tourist who has ever passed through Tekapo will almost certainly have a photo of it - it's probably one of the most photographed buildings in the South Island!
