One of the perks of my recent foray into “professional photography” is getting jetted about in planes and helicopters to take aerial photos (mostly real-estate). This shot was taken over Kinloch looking towards Lake Taupo on the way to take a photo of a lake-front property. The new development in the foreground is being spurred on by the development of an international golf course being built (out of shot on the right).
