Queenstown hill, morning light. Print signed by John Maillard on 17x22inch etching paper, with a handling edge.
This was the last picture I took before it got dark, on a road trip to Queenstown.
Queenstown hill also known by its Māori name of Te Tapu-nui (mountain of intense sacredness),
is a small 907 metres (2,976 ft) mountain near Queenstown, New Zealand in the South Island.
The lower levels of the hill contain housing especially near Queenstown, Frankton Road and Marina Heights. Mid way up the hill is a large forest of mainly douglas fir and larch, while the top is largely clear and the ground cover is that of tussock and native vegetation.
