Lake Rotoiti

Lake NZ

Hi Everyone sorry I have not posted for awhile, I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year. We are currently travelling around New Zealand (South Island) and this Photograph at Lake Rotoiti was taken on a very wet and wind day. I had to have my brother hold an umbrella up over the camera. It was absolutely pouring down but I managed to get a fairly decent Picture.
