Photographer's Note

Again this is taken from the top of the Skyline Complex from the observation deck.

Had a buffet dinner at the restaurant looking out at this view and waited till it started to get dark, I wanted it to still be light enough to get The Remarkables in the background.

I have to tell you the wind was howling and it was freezing cold (well for a Queenslander it was) I had a jacket and scarf on and I was still cold. There was a total of 3 brave souls out there to get the night shot, not even my travelling partner ventured outside.

An interesting bit of information that one of the locals told me as we waited for the sun to go down, was that by early afternoon Bob's Peak which the Skyline Complex sits creates a shadow over Queenstown. Because of this there is a lot of people now building on the otherside of the lake around Kelvin Heights to get more sunlight hours.
