This stitched image captures the rugged beauty of the mountains and lakes that are common in NZ's South Island Central Otago region. I wanted an image that reflected the sheer scale of the scene and and unusually calm day allowed the interesting cloud formation to be beautifully reflected in the lake.
Lake Hawea covers an area of some 141 km² and is, at its deepest, 392 metres deep and 35 kms long. In 1958 the lake was raised artificially by 20 metres to store more water for increased hydroelectric power generation.
It lies in a glacial valley formed during the last ice age, and is fed by the Hunter River. Lake Hawea is dammed to the south by an ancient terminal moraine created some 10,000 years ago and is part of the Southern Alps range which gives NZ its name of Aotearoa, the land of the long white cloud.

First of all, welcome to Trekearth!
Secondly, I'd love to visit New Zealand! I started gathering money to go some years ago, but gave up because it was too expensive, I was planning to go during winter to ski over there and one year before my trip I noticed that there was rain all over the Country all the time! Well, go, spending lots of Money and having rain all the time didn't seem to be a deal for me! But, I still have plans to go!
The reason is for all those stunning places like this one in your Picture!
I love that sky and the reflections on the mirror-like water surface!
Colors, exposure and panoramic format also pleased me!
I miss a bit more of sharpness, though... just a matter of personal taste!
Best regards and greetings from Brazil,

Türkiye Muğla-Bodrum'dan nekar uzaktasınız.Nefis bir Yansıma fotoğrafı çekmişsiniz. Su değilde sanki yansımayı ayna yapmış.
ışık ayrıca çok dereceli.
Başarılı fotoğrafınızı ve sizi tebrik ediyorum.
