Capturing the Essense of Lake Tekapo, NZ

We’ve all seen the magical realm that the Lord Of The Rings created around the surreal landscapes of New Zealand. New Zealand has some of the most beautiful sceneries on the planet and Lake Tekapo is no exception. Tekapo is the second-largest lake running along the northern edge of the Mackenzie Basin in the South Island of New Zealand. The lake is graciously fed at its northern end by the braided Godley River which is charged by the Southern Alps. It is world renowned for nightscapes and is home to the Mount John Observatory for this reason.
