Queenstown New Zealand April 2017 (18 photos)
This is part 11 of my New Zealand series of posts.
I thought I’d end my New Zealand 2017 series with some random photos I took in Queenstown.
On the slopes at the northwest border of the town is the Queenstown Skyline/Gondola. I had an hour free one day so I took the quick ride to the top to take some photos.
Queenstown is very limited in its ability to expand by the natural geographic features of this region.
Just a stroll in the park.
Queenstown Harbour, just a 1 minute walk from my hotel. You don’t have to wait long for the mood of the harbour to change.
The TSS Earnslaw is a 1912 Edwardian vintage twin screw steamer plying the waters of Lake Wakatipu.
On my last morning in Queenstown, I had everything packed and was waiting to checkout from the hotel. I went to a cafe. With a half hour until hotel checkout, I saw the rainbow and did a mad dash back to the hotel to get my camera. The rainbow almost ended on the TSS Earnslaw. With the TSS Earnslaw actively moving I didn’t have enough time to run to the right spot to get an exact alignment. As I mentioned, the mood of the harbour changes quickly. Fortunately I didn’t miss my drive to the airport.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this tour of the Queenstown area. I apologise for waiting so long to complete this tour.
On the topic of waiting, there will be potentially a very long wait until my next post. I need to devote some time to completing a few important things before I head off overseas in a couple of weeks. Then as is the usual case when I’m on holidays, I don’t intend to make any posts but as I won’t be returning to Australia until November, maybe this time I’ll drop a quick “postcard” whilst I’m away. Maybe.
I’ll be visiting 4 countries, 5 major cities and several smaller towns this trip. If you think that someone has photographed you on the street in the next few weeks – smile. It might be me. 🙂
