Lake Tekapo Footbridge

The MacLaren Footbridge is a great way to walk from the Lake Tekapo to the famous Church of the Good Shephard. A couple of years ago I took a great photograph of this bridge at night. Here in the daytime I walked down to the waters edge. This is the Tekapo River and under the bridge you can see the tiny church in the distance. Off to the left is the lake itself. I think that include a person walking across the bridge gives it some scale. The bridge is 125 metres long and a couple of metres wide. It was opened in 2015 and a brilliant addition to one of my favourite places in the South Island of New Zealand.v
