At the end of Lake Wakitipu and Part of the Remarkable Mountains is a small township called Glenorchy which has bugger all except splendid settings.
You are around 20KM from paradise which is the Mt Aspiring National Park which hosts the famous Routeburn track. The films LOTR and hobbit were used lots around here for locations.

The colours of your picture are very impressive.
I like the beautiful sky on the background,but the mountains are extremely remarkable ,that looks like a golden rock.
The reflexion of the golden light on the water and on the rocks on the foreground are very nice.

apart from the stunning location you chose very pretty moment of the day when the sun cast some gold light on the foreground and partially on the hills. This made the photo quite extraordinary and eye catching. The bridge has been shot at nice angle and adds to the landscape.
Beautiful colors and composition.
Thanks for sharing and enjoy your day

It certainly looks like LOTR country and the ring is shining brightly ... be well afraid!
Seriously, it is a beautiful location and taken at a time of day when it is possible to make the very best possible use of the light. The sun is illuminating the mountain tops and the reflection is being captured in the gently ripples.
Photographs are such very effective ways of capturing THE MOMENT.
I like this very much.
Have a lovely w/e,

The jetty makes the composition more attractive and provides a good foreground.
The most remarkable is that special light that brings beautiful colours in the sky and a wonderful golden glow on a part of the mountains that gets also well reflected in the lake.
Best regards, Paul

un'altra straordinaria foto dalla Nuova Zelanmda.
Hai la grande fortuna di avere davanti al tuo obiettivo un paesaggio grandioso e fantastico, ma hai la capacitÓ di interpretarlo nella miglioree delle maniere con belle composizioni e giochi di luce interessanti.
Complimenti anche per questa tua ultima proposta.
Ciao e buon fine settimana
