There's one way to avoid the hundreds of tourists that mill around the Church of the Good Shepherd at Lake Tekapo - climb 330 metres up a mountain through a pitch black forest at 5.30am to greet a storm. As the wind and rain are lashing across my face, I feel like I'm going to be blown off the mountain . Most of the time I'm in damage control because it's too wild to get my camera out of my bag. Yep, I can be pretty sure none of those tourists are going to walk into my shot just as the light is perfect.
