New Zealand Scenery
New Zealand vistas often reminded me of other places.  This
bay could easily be found in Hawaii.
White peaks above a blue lake suggest Alaska, but they exist
in New Zealand's North and South islands.
A volcanic peak for certain, this is from the North Island's
Tongariro National Park.  Not being a skier, I fail to see any
reason for a closer approach.
South Island scenery of this kind became beautifully routine.
