The Lake Wanaka tree is worshipped by photographers from all over the world. Its mountain backdrop is often blessed with a brilliant alpenglow.

No matter how many times I photograph the Wanaka tree, there is always a different mood. It teaches me to accept things as they are, to look past my preconceptions and to capture the beauty as it presents on the day. It's a lifetime of learning and I hope my favourite tree will appear in many images to come.
I can think of no better way to begin a day than watching the sun backlight the mist rising over Lake Wanaka. All whilst surrounded by snowy peaks in the presence of one's favourite tree ..... standing thigh deep in icy cold water excepted.

The shags roosting on this willow tree off Lake Wanaka's shore are remarkably still at twilight allowing me to capture this 2 minute exposure. As the sun comes up they fly off one by one.

Photographers travel across the world to photograph this famous tree on the shores of Lake Wanaka. This viewpoint requires a moderate lake level, wading into the icy cold water and positioning ones camera to skim just above the surface of the lake.
I've been overwhelmed by the interest in this image. It transports us away from our world of worries to a place of inner peace.
