** Lupin Fields **
Nov-Dec is the season of Lupins in New Zealand. We were lucky to see these “weeds” in full bloom. For a few hundred kilometers these amazing flowers gave us a multi-color carpet welcome. Lupins are a stark contrast to all green landscape of NZ.
All Lupins around Lake Tekapo were “infested” with tourists (from China) so we did not get the opportunity to click clean shots. This particular field is on the way to Lake Tekapo but no tourists bus stop here so we had the entire field to ourselves.
Pure New Zealand is a photo series of our 2 weeks self-drive family vacation in the southern island of Middle Earth. We crunched nearly 4000 km in 14 days, saw countless sheeps, dipped in glacial lakes, saw mighty glaciers, walked in Lupin (flower) fields, stayed in pristine valleys, jumped from a tiny plane from 15,000 feet, played in the mud, saw bluest pools and saw a truckload of Chinese tourists!
