“I was camped on the shore of this lake overnight after capturing “Halfway to Heaven”. There were a few cars in the nearby carpark, some with boat trailers. I imagined that they belonged to locals who had gone off for an overnight camping and fishing trip. At about midnight I was awoken by the sounds of a car driving up through the forest to the boat ramp. I heard the voices of two men. The car stopped and a strong light illuminated my tent. My imagination ran wild, and I thought maybe they were serial killers, but after a brief discussion they jumped back in the car and drove off, much to my relief. At about 3am I heard distant voices through the forest after the sound of a car door slamming shut. I peered out through the door of my tent… but was quickly distracted by what I saw. The milky way was vividly shining over the lake through an almost clear sky! Quite amazing for Fjordland in Winter. So I hurried out of my sleeping bag, donned some warm clothes and rushed out to the shore of the lake, and began taking photographs, including this image. The very first light of dawn slightly illuminated the sky and gave it some colour. Later in the morning a few more cars arrived in the nearby carpark; disgorging pairs of men carrying high-powered rifles; something I found a bit unusual and unsettling, coming as I do from Australia where no hunting is allowed in national parks.
