Location: Lake Wanaka, Wanaka, Otago, South Island, New Zealand
Poplar trees, distinctly gold in colour, alongside the lake edge resemble soldiers standing to attention. Their dramatic colours are striking against the sky and the intense blue water of the lake as the smooth stones reveal the clarity of the water.
Although the scene is striking, it is also peaceful as ‘That Wanaka Tree’ appears to be extending itself effortlessly above and across the lake’s surface. The wispy cloud and light fog on the right hand side, soften the dynamics to the left of this image.
