Tekapo by Night

Tekapo by Night


A beautiful summer’s night at Tekapo’s Church of the Good Shepherd.

Tekapo is a stunning part of New Zealand and a must-stop every time I'm in the South Island. This is an image that I previsualised before arriving in Tekapo, but didn't actually hold out much hope of being able to create it. I was only there for one night and the day leading up to this was quite overcast. Also, being the middle of summer, this isn't a great time of year for capturing the Milky Way in the Southern Hemisphere. In winter months, the core would be much higher, and the result would be a much denser Milky Way.

In hindsight, I think this was the perfect night for this shot. If the Milky Way had been more dense, it would have fought with the Church for the viewer's attention and drawn away from the focus of the image... which of course, is this beautifully picturesque church.
