Autumn in Central Otago

I recently had the good fortune to drive form Dunedin to Wanaka just in time to see the last of the autumn colours.

I stopped at Butchers Dam just outside of Alexandra where the lake was still, clear and reflective.  A very rare occurrence in these parts.  The week before I had driven through and the colours were bright and crisp, they had faded somewhat after the weekends rain, but still beautiful anyway.






I also stopped at Cromwell in time to see this beautiful days end.  Again this stillness of the Dunstan is rarely ever seen.  I think this is the only time I've seen it quite this calm and I've been driving this route for a couple of years now
