Taken in Lake Wanaka, New Zealand, April 18th, 2015

Well so much for relaxing. After completing two somewhat intense circuits of the southern South Island of New Zealand I was feeling jazzed up to wind down. I arrived in Wanaka with the plan to do absolutely nothing for a few days -not even any photography- to recover a bit. But as afternoon slipped into evening the clouds began to sing an irresistible siren song that lured me down to the lake shore. And when the sun slipped below the horizon the sky lit up in a chorus of color. Deep blue basses, purple tenors, salmon altos, and ruby sopranos in their lilting voices high on top. One of the finest displays of visual harmony I’ve ever had the privilege of watching and I’m deeply grateful for the invitation to see the show.
