Was such a privilege to be able to capture these amazing flowers which only show themselves 3 weeks out of the year. Turns out I wasn't the only one who got the memo about this.

What a fabulous image of this wonderful church in NZ. None of those flowers were there when we visited many years ago now

Yeah they only bloom for about a week in late November and early December. So it was quite a treat being able to photograph them in such a beautiful location.

Lake Tekapo is a stunning area. The Lupins grow wild all over the McKenzie country, adding a delightful dash of colour.
