Church of the Good Shepherd

Church of the Good Shepherd

The beautiful and photogenic Church of the Good Shepherd is one of the oldest churches in this part of New Zealand's South Island. Sitting on the shore of the stunning Lake Tekapo, the church is surrounded by deep blues, both in the sky and the water beyond. I had hoped to do some astrophotography the night I was there, but a nearly full moon and clouds moving through the area required a change in plans. Instead I focused on getting an image with deep color, some stars, and a bit of movement in the wispy clouds overhead. The only illumination was provided the by bright moon, which was more than enough for both the church and the snowcapped mountains in the background.
