    Hi all – I hope I am not treading on anyone’s toes by starting this thread, if so please let me know.
    I have so many pictures of NZ that may be of interest to others & rather than clog up someone else’s thread I decided to start this thread just to see if it generates any interest.
    I would be really pleased if other members were to contribute non-contentious, non-political photos, articles etc – New Zealand content only.

    Cheers Val

    LAKES of NEW ZEALAND

    1. EMERALD LAKE
    Rewarding in its beauty and the fact that it is a trek to get there, the Emerald Lake is near the summit of Mt Tongariro which was the setting for Mordor in The Lord Of The Rings trilogy. It can be seen while tramping the Tongariro Crossing. Location: Tongariro National Park, North Island

    2. LAKE QUILL
    One of the many stunning aspects of Fiordland National Park, Lake Quill funnels into the famous Sutherland Falls. Hike to the lake or get the full picture with a scenic flight over Milford Sound.

    Lake Taupo is the largest lake in New Zealand, so large, in fact, that it is the size of Singapore. Check out New Zealand’s largest lakes in our article.

    They are breathtaking photos, valeo19. The isolation is the secret to their perfection. I have been to a few S.Island lakes and am always awed at the natural beauty. Arrowtown is a gem and worth a visit.
