Kepler

Fly into Queenstown, then rent a car and drive south to Lake Te Anau on New Zealand's south island. Near the little town of Te Anau begins the Kepler Great Walk of New Zealand's brilliant Great Walk system kept by the DOC. Climb Mt. Luxmore and peer into the south fiord of Lake Te Anau, circle around the mountain system and descend into the rainforest of Iris Burn and Moturau on Lake Manapouri. Follow Waiau river back to Te Anau and you've just spent three nights in some of New Zealand's most remote and stunning landscape in the Southern Alps and Fiordland National Park. 

This entire series of photographs were taken on a 50mm lens.

The DOC uses one of Tyler Ray's photographs as the hero image in the Kepler Great Walk brochure.
