My Captured Moment #7 – Lake above the Clouds

It’s Thursday – which means, time to link up with the lovely Heledd from Running in Lavender for #MyCapturedMoment.

The other day we stumbled upon the pictures we took on our holiday to New Zealand in 2008 (I cannot believe it is already this long ago!). My husband and I literally spent all evening going through all these photographs remembering little anecdotes about this unforgettable holiday. One of my most favourite pictures is this one above. It is of a lake above the cloud level – absolutely stunning! We took this picture on a 7 hour (yes, 7 hours! Don’t ask what my feet felt and looked like at the end, but it was so worth it!) mountain crossing, the Tongariro Crossing.

    What a stunning photo, I can’t even begin to imagine the trek you made to get it though!

      I was close to giving up at one point – but there were no roads etc. to get back, so there was no choice but to finish the trek. I am so glad that we did it though!

    Wow what a fantastic photo! We visited New Zealand about 9 years ago and it’s just stunning #MyCapturedMoment xx

      So true. I think back to the moment we saw the lake for the first time a lot. I am so glad we decided to do this crossing. I wasn’t too keen at the beginning when we were told how long it would take – but so worth it!

    That is absolutely stunning, how beautiful – totally worth the 7 hours just for that shot! #MyCapturedMoment

    As Kate says Heidi – stunning.

    It’s great to go through the oldies and spend time reminiscing – but 7 HOURS. Yikes 🙂

      It really was brilliant to look through these old pictures. I probably wouldn’t manage a 7 hour mountain crossing nowadays…

      Thank you! The moment we saw the lake for the first time was truly breathtaking.
