Christmas at the lake, Cambridge New Zealand

Christmas At The Lake 19/12/2010

So it rained all day 34 mls by midnight Sunday. But the rain stopped and some 500 folk turned up to an event that usually attracts 5000 – and the music happened. I just really like this shot. Leafa Wilson fronting the Kiwi Hits Band.

Welcome to Cambridge New Zealand – Lake Te Ko Utu

Welcome to Cambridge New Zealand

Cambridge New Zealand – Lake Te Ko Utu

Yes, it is a surprisingly large body of water when you look at it from this point of view. To get your bearings you can just spot the pink church on Victoria Street SH1 directly above the first tree on the shore line which stands out from the right. There is a viewing platform somewhere up there which looks onto the lake and beyond to French Pass, Whitehall and Maungakawa. We are looking west. Lake Te Ko Utu forms part of the 17·6 hectare Cambridge Domain. King Tāwhiao referred to Te Ko Utu as his Te Okohoroi (wash basin).
