This week’s picture of the week is the third in a three part series (part 1, part 2) and is of the Church of the Good Shepherd in Lake Tekapo, New Zealand (near the Mt. Cook region of the south island). Holly and I had seen pictures of the little church prior to leaving and decided we had to stop there to check it out. It was really quite stunning. The church is self is a beautiful stone building and the landscape surrounding it is as breath-taking as any New Zealand landscape. Directly behind the church is Lake Tekapo which is an amazing emerald green color from the sediment carried in the rivers from the glaciers on and below Mt. Cook. Absolutely amazing… you should definitely check it out if you find yourself on the south island of New Zealand!
