MM 3-40 Queenstown View

My wife and I visited the North Island of New Zealand for eight days in 2011 and then we flew to the country’s South Island to spend four more days in Queenstown.  This photo was taken about halfway between our lakeside apartment and central Queenstown and is my entry for this week’s Monochrome Madness Challenge.


It took us about 25 minutes to walk from our apartment overlooking Lake Wakatipu to central Queenstown. This spot was near the halfway point of our walk.

Australian photographer Leanne Cole hosts the weekly Monochrome Madness Challenge. Drop by her website (her Monochrome Madness blog postings appear on Thursdays in Australia — Wednesdays in North America and Europe) to see what photographers from all over the world are doing in monochrome these days. Leanne suggests a specific theme for the first week of every month. Next week’s theme is Reflection.

BREAKING NEWS: My daughter just published another book! Take a look at her latest Key of Dee blog posting.
