The New Zealand picture below was taken near a small village called Lowburn, which is situated not too far from Cromwell in Central Otago on the South Island of New Zealand.
Lowburn is not a large place, which is why I call it a village – there are just a couple of houses there. Nearby Cromwell is much larger, but not large enough to be called a city; it’s a town. You can drive from Cromwell to Queenstown in about 40 to 45 minutes. Queenstown is large enough that it can be called a city.
The water seen in the photo belongs to an inlet that is part of Lake Dunstan. Lake Dunstan is a man-made lake in Central Otago. Its shoreline is dotted with yellow trees during autumn in New Zealand.
A common recreational activity for many New Zealanders who live close to water (rivers and lakes) is boating and fishing. Therefore, it is not uncommon to see someone on a boat early in the morning hours fishing on Lake Dunstan; it is a very peaceful time to be on the lake.
