Very beautiful, the autumn colours and the reflections are fantastic Ian. LIKE! Greetings Berend

We thought the colours were breathtaking, and that we were there at just the perfect time! The high peaks got a dusting of snow at the beginning of the week, so by the end the autumn colours were at their max!

Love the Queenstown area.

Thanks Berend for rejoicing with me in this beauty.

Autumn hand painted this landscape in a spectacular way!!! I see that sunny days also accompanied you Ian :))!!! Impressive shot with an enchanting reflection, congratulations!!!

You describe this well, Toto. We certainly had some great weather to enjoy, and even when we had rain, snow or storm, I was able to use those conditions too for different images or for together activities. But staying in each place for a week or so usually guaranteed some good weather for moments like this.

Thanks for your friendship and appreciation.

Big hug,

Thank you oleg034. The best part of it is being in such beautiful landscapes that New Zealand has.

Warm regards,
