With this post I’m happy to announce the latest addition to my free wallpaper collection, it features a photograph from one of my favourite places in New Zealand – Lake Manapouri.  Cathedral Peaks are part of the Kepler Mountains range and located on the northern shore of the lake, which is also known as “lake of many islands”, “rainy lake”, “sorrow heart” and “loveliest Lake of New Zealand”.

Returned from Kosciuszko National Park yesterday, where I spent a few days and nights backpacking. For a New Years Eve celebration, we stayed near Blue Lake, one of the five glacier lakes in the park, 1997 meters above the sea level, under billions of stars. Photograph above was shot soon after we finished celebrating New Year with Ilya Genkin.

Happy New Year!
