standing still by barns standing still by barns
this photo was taken on Merlin's & my trip to Lake Alta near Queenstown, it's been a loong way up there on a winding gravel-road & we had to go for more than an hour to get to this beautiful, wild spot. :phew:

This is also one of the LotR-locations, where Aragorn crosses the little river after the fellowship came out of the Mines of Moria :aww: ... it wasn't a very long scene in the movie, but this was such a wonderful place to be. :floating:


I wish you all a beautiful day :hug:


:heart: barns

What a great and tranquil photo and looks like it might have been a bit on the chilly side though the walk to it might have warmed you up a bit. I must get down to the south island again, it is 30 years since I was last there, want to go right down to the Catlins as I missed it last time (mind then I only had a 126 camera)

Lake Alta! I actually "swam" (more like dipped) in it (in January, but it was freezing all the same).

That looks... amazing. I love how you're able to capture shots like these. It maybe a photo, and it probably would look even better in real life, but it still looks so real... and clear. It feels like I'm actually there. I love your photography.

... I wanna go to New Zealand now...
