follow a journey through Dark Skies.

Though there are a number of excellent locations in the South Island to pursue astrophotography, one of my favorites is the Dark Sky Reserve in the Mackenzie Basin/ Lake Tekapo region. With the picturesque 'Church of the Good Shepherd' on the lake front- it makes an excellent foreground subject.
