Lyn, your work is wonderful and this picture is so beautiful. I especially like those snow covered mountain peeks.

I would have been tempted to name this shot "atanga" simply because of the beauty and majestry before my eyes.

I see it has been nominated for the perms. It will undoubtedly reside there before long. A great one LE.

Fantastic photo, Lyn! Perfectly taken. I liked amazing turquoise colors of the mountains and lake. Two lentil shaped clouds over the Aoraki's peak seems like it tries to give us some messages.
