I just spent a long weekend in Tekapo, planned around a university alumni trip to Mt John Observatory (the observatory is run in part by my Alma mater, the University of Canterbury). Here are some photos from various places in the region. I'll have to break it into parts due to the per post upload limit. All images shot with the E-M1. Part 1.
