Church of the Good Shepherd

Posted on 23 May 2014

Situated on the shores of Lake Tekapo is the Church of the Good Shepherd, which, in 1935, was the first church built in the Mackenzie Basin.  The church is arguably one of the most photographed in New Zealand, and features an altar window that frames stunning views of the lake and mountains.(source:Wikipedia)

I couldn't resist photographing this church, its a very photogenic location. When I arrived there were many tourists milling around and had trouble finding a slot where no one was in the scene. I eventually had to remove some people in post-processing and ended up with the image above. The interior of this church is just as photogenic, watch this space for my interior shot.
