Photographer's Note

In the small settlement of Lake Tekapo in the South Island's McKenzie Country is a statue of a collie sheepdog. Brought to New Zealand in the 19th century by Scottish immigrants, the ancestors of the original collies have been bred to handle the worst conditions the High Country can throw at farmers. The statue is a tribute to these heroic dogs for without them sheep farming would be well-nigh impossible in these foothills of the Southern Alps.
