Glenorchy, that mythical place at the end of the line as far as my journey was planned. Its how I like it, quiet, and being at peace with the grandeur of Mt Aspiring national park. As far as images for landscape photographers it all here folks. Fortunately most overseas tourists don’t spend much time here as the magnetic hubris of Queenstown keeps them there circling like moths around the brightest town in the Southern lakes. This is the total opposite to Tekapo which is part of the dark sky reserve. Glenorchy is also very dark at night with the milky way beckoning us to imagine infinity and beyond. Space the final frontier. Well that’s what I said to the hobbit standing beside me.
