Entry Description

Situated on the shores of Lake Tekapo (South Island, New Zealand), is the Church of the Good Shepherd (c 1935). It is situated in an official "night park" which means lighting in the area has been limited - allowing for fantastic night photography. When I took this picture, the Southern Cross constellation appeared faintly upside down on top of the church cross - hence the title. This shot was taken at about 1.30am just before the clouds started to blow in.

About Photographer

Wildlife images are one of the most powerful ways we have of engaging people in the natural world? Sir David Attenborough. Because of this, I primarily work with those whose values and goals closely align with mine, and organisations who want to inspire people and communities to discover, value and protect the natural world.
