01.07.13 - Lake Wanaka’s floating tree

A bit of an icon and some may say cliche’ photograph is Wanaka’s lonely Willow tree. Submerged under water for most of it’s life the tree appears to float on the lake creating a unique photographic composition. It’s constantly morphing deciduous qualities and the unpredictable lake levels provide a different image year round. The tree is a magnet for swimmers, children, birds and of course photographers! The tree has lost a few limbs over the last few years but I for one hope it survives for many more years to come…
