Lake Coleridge, New Zealand

Lake Coleridge township is located between Lake Coleridge and the Rakaia River on the eastern edge of New Zealand’s Southern Alps.

It is a sleepy little town with few streets and few permanent residents. Many of the houses in the township serve as holiday homes, perfect for a weekend getaway, less than two hours from Christchurch.

In early September I found myself there for a weekend out of the city with my brother and his friends.

The night sky was amazing and I did my best to capture that, though I lacked a tripod.

The following two images were taken with the Photo Sphere feature on my phone. Click and drag to look around.

On the second night speakers were set up. The music and sky were surreal. Breath hung in the air, which was well below zero.

    I love those Photosphere’s Nathan. Time to get out of the big city, that’s for sure! Hope you’re well.

      Thanks Kristie :)

      I am looking forward to catching up in Aus. Hopefully we can get out of the city then.
