Milky Way over Lake Ellesmere & Banks Peninsula

Towards the end of our evening out to see if we could catch an Aurora I decided that the milky way was so spectacular that I wanted to take a photograph of it arcing down over Banks Peninsula. The silhouette of the flax on the left with the haze of Christchurch behind it was too good to leave out too.

Just as we were about to pack up and go Greg picked up the torch and went to make a romantic gesture under the stars…. unfortunately we only got the one go at doing some painting with light as the torch decided it’d had enough and went for early retirement. Luckily the moon was so bright that it lit our way back down the frosty trail to the car!
