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!
