The Wanaka Tree, New Zealand by Neil Protheroe

Picture StoryCertainly the most photographed tree in New Zealand, and perhaps even the world, the famous Lone Tree at Roy’s Bay, Lake Wanaka, is believed to have started its life as a humble fence post in the 1930s. It is a compelling subject in a beautiful landscape, offering a variety of creative compositions which should appeal to any photographer. This was my first visit to “the tree” in the spring and the conditions happened to be perfect for this particular composition. There were surprisingly few people there at the time too, which made finding the ideal spot much easier than it might have been.
