Remember New Zealand 2006(no 3)

From Foxton  following the State Highway,  the next we saw was the snow covered Mount Raupehu. The clouds opened a bit and we could see the snow covered mountain top.

Then we went on north to Lake Taupa.

This is just to show how green and beautiful the landscape is.

Lake Taupo is a lake situated in the North Island of New Zealand. With a surface area of 616 square kilometres (238 sq mi), it is thelargest lake by surface area in New Zealand, and the second largest freshwater lake by surface area in geopolitical Oceania after Lake Murray (Papua New Guinea) ..wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Taupo

It was already getting late and dark when we passed Lake Taupo. Next stop was Cambridge and a good nights rest!

Next I will show some pictures from and around Cambridge and Hamelton.

Should you wish to join me in this challenge, here are the rules:

  1. The theme begins on Sunday and at least one image on the theme must be posted by the following Saturday.
  2. Images can be captured on my Digital SLR, point-and-shoot or even the phone on my camera.
  3. Each image must be taken during the theme week. No scrounging back through last year’s photos for “a good one”. That would be cheating and the challenge is about taking new photos with new inspiration!
  4. Images are allowed to be post processed. I shoot in RAW and use Photoshop Elements 9.0 for post processing. My favourite actions come from Paint the Moon and MCP Actions. If you haven’t checked them out yet you should. They both offer freebies to give you a taste of how their products work.
Each week I will post the challenge.  If you are participating, add a link to the photo you have taken in the comment section of that post.
