Autumn, Queenstown Waterfront

Autumn, Queenstown Waterfront.
This pic has the dubious honour of being the most-pinched image on my website, I guess that means people like it. Stealers of note include: national NZ franchise The Coffee Shop, the YHA in Queenstown, queenstown.com and numerous Chinese travel agencies trying to flog off trips to down under. I know all this because Pixsy.com notify me when it shows up on other people’s websites. If you are a local business do the decent thing and ask me if you would like to use any of my pics.
