Guardians of Lake Wakatipu.

Trees stand like guardians at the top of Lake Wakatipu on New Zealand’s South Island.
Says Brad Grove, a member of our Your Shot community: “I first discovered these trees by the Glenorchy jetty back in April 2011 and had never really been happy with my efforts to shoot them.”
Grove achieved this HDR image in June 2012, after approaching the trees from a different direction.
“It was minus 4 [degrees Celsius] on a very cold morning, and the sun had just broken the horizon behind me,” he says. “The composition fell into place, and I took seven exposures hoping I had enough data to produce the image I could see in my head.”
