Island Life - Brian Love

Dawn arrives along the shores of Lake Wanaka, New Zealand. The highly popular yet lonely Wanaka Tree is in frame. This tree is one of the iconic photographic gems of the south island of New Zealand and is sought after by professionals and tourists alike. There are no shortage of photographs of the lone tree, however, I wanted to approach the scene a bit different than most. I chose to compose this shot with the natural framing of the foliage a further from the water. The soft light of morning and the slow, quiet breeze made this morning a memorable one. Of course, the tree was the main event - unique and impactful in its own right.
