Have you ever had one of those moments where you have no idea where you are but you just had to get a photo of the moment in time? That is how I was feeling this day.
Deb and I were cycling to camp when we stopped at a lake to take in the extraordinary view of New Zealand's countryside. The water was the perfect colour of turquoise. It is exactly what I expected the glacial waters of New Zealand to look like. The sky was a deep blue and there was just enough cloud to give rich texture to the photo. A storm was blowing in causing a rainbow above the clouds.
I decided to set up my camera and take a self portrait. My first one ever!
It captures exactly what I was feeling that day, completely satisfied with life at this moment. I don't think I have witnessed such a stunning scene in all my travels and I wanted everyone to see what I had seen.
I have no idea what the name of the lake is or what the mountains are called in the background but sometimes you just need to share a moment rather than a name and location.
This trip to New Zealand is sponsored by the Flying Kiwi a great way to get around the country with fellow travellers.
