This weekend I had the pleasure of being in Tekapo with a couple of my photography friends. We opted for simple but great accomodation at the YHA right on the shore front. When you really only intend to use your room as somewhere to catch a few hours of sleep it really is the perfect venue.
One of the purposes of the trip was to get some astro photography in, with Tekapo being part of the dark sky project you would think that would be simple. Unfortunately the weather did not play nicely and thick freezing fog during the day and evening put paid to that option. Oh well, freezing fog does make for some very interesting photography options and an abundance of hoar frost made for some spectacular scenery.
There was plenty of good food, good wine, good company and plenty of laughs......what else can you ask for in a weekend away :-)
Enough of my waffling, here is a collection of images from my trip both to and at Tekapo.
