The picturesque Lake Wakatipu in Queenstown is the perfect relaxation point away from the hustle-bustle of metropolitan cities. The lake is tucked away deep inside New Zealand, only to be discovered by wanderlust-bit tourists. The pristine blue water and serene surroundings are seen as being enjoyed by a contemplative visitor in this picture. Such scenes of tranquility amidst the various shades of aqua blue and turquoise, all surrounded by deep brown mountains, are the hallmark of this spot that we visited as part of our honeymoon to the country of the Hobbit.

Location: Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown, New Zealand
