Lake Taupo

By Guernseydan  
After several miserable days in Rotorua and Taupo I thought I was going to miss the chance of any photos from this area.

Another miserable evening and I decided it was a non starter so my lady and I wandered into Taupo's centre for some food when the sky parted and the most stunning light beamed over the lake.

A mad sprint back to the hostel to grab my gear and a desperate dash to an area on the lake I had scouted before meant I was there in time to capture this stunning moment.

Thanks for looking!

Dan

Worth all that effort. Its such a good idea to know exactly where you want to take a shot once the right conditions arrive.

An excellent shot Dan, particularly like the rocks are prominent and the dramatic sky.

That's great Dan. The detail beneath the water and the reflected clouds and light are beautiful.
