In the wintertime, New Zealand gets deserted from its tourists, leaving pristine landscape like this one to be enjoyed by a lucky few. The lake is a smaller rainwater lake situated right next to the greater lake Tekapo. The colours on the picture are pretty much what I happened to see on that day, quite unbelievable...

Awesome! What a wonderful winter scene Thomas. I went there in early January one year and it rained all the time! But I was impressed with teh blue/green colour of the lake.
This is great, what superb colours, sharpness, and coldeness too! Well captured, thank you,

It's a great scene. Never seen such colours myself, but if you say so, I believe. The reflections are funny showing some parts pretty clearly while ripples hide the rest.

a great landscape with nice blue tones, beautiful light...
Perhaps does it miss a subject so that this one becomes a true chief of work? In any case the decoration is planted
