"WAKATIPU DELIGHT" by DAVID WEIR; Grade: Merit.
A different view to most, nearing the top of the lake. I like this area in the late afternoon looking north when the sun can cast those delightful colours across the lake and the mountains. This view is quite impressive with the panoramic view and the inclusion of a small amount of beach allows us a standing point to look across to the hills. Reducing a bald sky is the right idea. If it contributes little, then don't include it in the image.
