Waking up at 6am on vacation means that I am back on Virginia time, and that is a good thing in terms of making the most of the day. I slipped out of the house at 7:15 and took the 15 minute stroll to Lake Wanaka.
It was such a peaceful morning with just a few runners, walkers, and photographers out and about.
And a few ducks …
It was a slightly overcast morning, but slowly the sun began to peak through the clouds.
I could see the town off in the distance, and knowing that we’d be visiting later in the day, I turned around for home.
After putting my feet in the water, of course. Look at that clear water!
It truly is, Derrick
It really looks like another world or planet. Your photos capture the peace of it all. Clear water? What is that? I see nothing like that on my morning walks. Enjoy the town.
Marlene, I just posted about our kayaking trip and made a comment about the clarity. I found out that the lake is 900 ft deep and has very little visible organic matter. Stunning!!
I am ready to read that post but stopped to check on comments first. I’ll be there in a moment. 🙂
Your photo’s are sublime! I’ve barely taken many scenery shots yet, I better get my butt in gear 😀 A nice walk today I think will do xo
Hey my sweet friend! Can’t wait to see your photos!
GORGEOUS photos!!! I love how you pair the photos with short observations. Feels like a visual poem. Enjoy your vacation! xo
Niva! So good to hear from you! Thanks, too, for the comment. Clearly I’m not the writer, but I do try to offer a narrative to the photos. I appreciate your writer’s take on it
Just gorgeous! So fun to tag along.
Thanks Deborah! It truly is a remarkable experience. So very happy!
This is the perfect time of day to be out and to capture moody photos. That water is so clear!
Hi Kerry – Thanks so much for commenting on my posts. It truly means alot to me!
I justed about our kayaking trip and made comment about that clear water. It is incredible how clear it is. I’m so used to seeing a ton of organic matter on the lake where I ususally kayak.
