Paul says…

“That Tree” – so often photographed by visitors to Lake Wanaka on New Zealand’s South Island, I’d arrived hoping to get something a little bit different.

I guess I succeeded in that, but for a very different reason than what I had been expecting as we drove over the mountain passes from Queenstown to get to the right spot on the lakefront. As we arrived, the image I had in my head disappeared completely as a thick creamy haze enveloped the entire scene, making the Southern Alps almost invisible in the background. Coupled with the constantly moving birds who call this tree home and a higher lake level than normal, my hopes weren’t too high.

But as the sun dropped further across the mountains, the scene began to change. The tree lone now in silhouette, the mountains now visible through the moist air in deep and distant layers and the birds (remarkably) holding still just long enough for me to capture this over 60 seconds before the light fell away completely. I couldn’t have imagined a more peaceful and quiet scene to capture that night; the only sound for miles around being the simple click of my shutter.

Location: Lake Wanaka, New Zealand
