The famous 'Wanaka Tree'. This has become a must-visit location for photographers located in the south island of New Zealand.
Unfortunately, the tree was damaged in March 2020 with a saw. Someone had lopped off several branches using a saw or chainsaw, including the branch that dips into the water.

Mia moved my shot so my recommended shooting location is now not shown. Look at the position of the little island to the right of the tree - the only way to get that perspective is to pull back south along the shore (away from the crowds of photographers) and use a long lens. Two benefits - no tripod bumping and I think, a better angle/composition.

Thank you. Its one of those spots that seems to present an interesting image at any time. One of the shots I took was well into the evening (returning from a restaurant) requiring a 25-second exposure.
