It’s a Race to the Finish Line by Farhat Memon

Lake Ruataniwha, located in Mackenzie Basin in New Zealand is a man made lake formed as a part of hydroelectric project. But as you are driving past this scene, not much here looks man made! In fact, this scene is so pretty, I was compelled to turn around and come back to take some pictures. The flock of birds timed it well for me! One day, I hope to take some pictures here at sunrise and sunset. This is pretty spectacular drive and it needs some dedicated time to it.
