I love this spot.*

I grew up in Nelson and I recall many fun visits to Lake Rotoiti with family, schools and scouts over the years – I even learned to ski up at Mount Robert, before  global warming (cue flamefest) left it looking like this in mid winter…

This image was made the day after my Grandfather’s funeral back in August, adding another layer to my catalog of Lake Rotoiti memories.

Cheers – Todd

*the sandflies suck – those I don’t love…

    Great shot to wake up to.
    Have memories of Lake Rotoiti – sandflies, sandflies, sandflies, and then more sandflies.
    Still a beautiful spot, and worthy of a visit.

    Spent a long time with the kids watching the eels under that jetty. There are no sandflies when there’s snow on the ground.
