Church of the Good Shepherd at Lake Tekapo, NZ. I got to this location nice and early after camping at Lake Pukaki that night. Absolutely freezing and the ground laden with frost, I thought I would take a frame showing exactly how clear the skies are in this part of the world. The church is lit by street lights quite a distance away. Behind the church the sun is starting to peek over the horizon. Canon 5D Mark III | Canon EF 17-40L @ 17mm | ƒ/4 | 30 sec | ISO3200
