It’s always a treasured stop.
The still lake framed by patterned mountains has dispersed the charming cloud structures all over its surface. The hot sunrays are kept in check by a southeast breeze, which helped the ambiance reach a near perfect tranquillity.
The scene will delight any traveller, including the ones burdened by excessive expectations.

The storm was vicious. It pounded the mighty ranges with gusto, scraping muddy debris off the mountains into the pristine waters of Lake Rotoiti. It signed off its passing with a murky stain still visible on the edge of the image.
The calamity rattled a few feathers, literally, including the ones belonging to a little mysterious visitor who made Nelson Lakes National Park its home. A rather curious aberration for a country with a stringent biosecurity system in place.
The Mandarin duck, a native of East Asia, has been a resident for a while and turned into an attraction for tourists and locals alike. They affectionately named him Alphonso, I believe, as the most common Chinese name they could think of.

As the sun retreated for the day behind snow-capped peaks, a golden glow is substituted by a chill carrying mist. Queenstown restaurants are waiting for me, it’s dinner time.
Just one more look.
