Visiting my brother near Riverton yesterday took us through some amazing landscapes.
My first shot of the day was taken at Kingston, at the Southern end of the lake. As you can see, the water was still and the colours were very nice indeed. The first shot is looking down on the Kingston township.
The second image is from the same spot, looking back up the lake towards Queenstown.
After a pleasant family visit, and some shopping in Invercargill, we made the return journey into the fading light. At Fairlight (the Southern Terminus for the Kingston Flyer), the clouds were interesting.
Then again, as we were nearing Queenstown along the lake edge, there was a still view of the lake with some of the last of the sunset lingering in the clouds.
As the day reached its end, the arrival back at Lake Hayes Estate was marred by the realisation that there were no lights anywhere. A power cut kept us cold and in candle-lit near darkness until power was eventually restored at around 1:30 am.
Home today, not sure what opportunities will arise in transit.
