Photographer: Richard Bloom
Competition: Competition 9
Category: Wildflower Landscapes
Location: Lake Tekapo, Mackenzie, Canterbury, South Island, New Zealand


On the way to Lake Tekapo on the South Island of New Zealand in early summer the landscape, already amazing, was scattered with drifts of naturalised lupins, which gave it an almost psychedelic, wonderland feel.

The banks of this stream were bristling with masses of different coloured lupins stretching toward the distant hills and out of shot to the west, giving the sense that they went on forever.
