Maori for 'Kodak moment'
30.04.2013 - 01.05.2013
Lake Tekapo is situated in the "County of Stars" and the town is dedicated to it, there are few street lights just to ensure visitors and the locals get the best view of the universe. I don't think anything I could write would do justice to the night skies, so i'll let my lens do the talking:
Now don't go thinking that its just beautiful at night, the daytime offers stunning views of the turquoise lake meeting the mountains and a "peak" of Mount Cook in the far ground. The best place to view is from the Church of the Good Shepherd on the shoreline, with a postbox window behind the altar offering views of the lake as you pray. If my church looked like this, I'd consider actually going!
Top Tip: If you find yourself in the area, there's a great Japanese restaurant with views of the lake. Check out the Kohan Restaurant for great food with great views.
