WRCH2010 boat park off water pontoons Lake Karapiro

Looking southeast towards Maungatautari from WRCH2010 boat park Lake Karapiro

In the foreground the Lake Karapiro WRCH2010 boat park off water pontoons. Beyond the Don Rowlands Centre and the glass of the finish tower against the grandstand – apparently the largest temporary stand to be built in New Zealand – and yes it is huge. Beyond that the shell of the concert stage where Ophop will perform tomorrow afternoon – after the opening ceremony. And beyond again, above the trees, the northern slopes of Maungatautari.
