Ever since I arrived in New Zealand, I have seen photos of the Church of the Good Shepherd on Lake Tekapo in the South Island. I was curious because the background in the photos seemed quite limited so I asked Hubby to put it on the list of things to see. He was willing to drive for 3 hours from our hotel room for me to see it. And now I know why the photos were limited. This is a very edited shot I took.
For a place that isn't on the way to anywhere else, it was packed with people. The setting by the lake with the surrounding mountains would be fabulous if you could get a shot, Obviously, that is nearly impossible.
Since we could see the towers of the Mt John Observatory from the church, we decided to try to see the church from there. I think I like these shots that Hubby took better.
A highlight of the 3 hour trip was turning a corner to see Mt Cook behind Lake Pukaki. The water was unbelievably blue from the glacier water.
I like how this automatic edit turned out.
