I had a new camera and lens for this trip, I was still learning the camera and hadn't set it up to fully suite my needs. After I set back to my accommodation to edit my photographs, I noted some problems with the image which meant I had to go back to try again. This is the second attempt of the image on the same day. The day light was disappearing fast, and I was rushing as fast as I could to take my image of this famous tree as it was going to be my only chance for some time.
I love this image of the famous "That Wanaka Tree", with its tranquil yet moody feel, which in my opinion makes for a refreshing change from the typical photograph you will see of this tree. I also love how it was so close to never have being taken.
