The TREE and its worshippers

Posted by
Maxine (Christchurch, New Zealand) on 21 April 2015 in Lifestyle & Culture.

This tree is the most photographed tree in New Zealand and it has been seen in many guises and moods. Every morning expect to find keen photographers trying to get an even better image. The tree sits in lake Wanaka. This particular morning the twp photographers pictured were fron a post card company, and they had waterproof gear up to their arms and the cameras sat dangerously close to the waves.
