[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have posted this shot of Lake Wanaka as "coasties" posted almost the same shot taken about 5 weeks later! The lake level was alot lower when I took my shot - we had a fair bit of rain in that 5 weeks. The lone willow is a much photographed one and is also the setting for many lakeside weddings - Wanaka has become very popular as a wedding destination for couples from overseas. I have photographed 3 weddings this year at this spot - I guess the couples like the dramatic background. Hope you enjoy.

Hi Ali,

Outstanding picture. Excellent composition. The DOF is perfect at the picture is balanced. The time of day, the angled shore, shadowed mountains and tiny island in BG, forest edge on the left and especially the lone tree creates a very dramatic scenery. Too bad for the humidity level. Good work.

Amazing landscape... very beautiful

Hi Ali

Very nice. The colours are much better in your shot. More vibrant. Interesting the water level. I love that tree! TFS.

Hi Ali

A lovely shot with great colours. The composition is really good.


Hi Ali,
Very beautiful place, and your crisp photo shows it nicely. I like how you placed the tree on the left, keeping the mountains and their reflection as a great frame.

Nice landscape.If I can save some money I should visit the nice Island country NEW ZEALAND.

Hi Ali,
A wonderful landscape, vivid and sharp. A wonderful day for a photo. You have composed the photo well.
Best regards
