Another great photo spot in Queenstown is Lake Hayes. Lake Hayes is a small lake in the Wakatipu Basin in Central Otago, in New Zealand's South Island. It is located close to the towns of Arrowtown and Queenstown. On a still day you can expect some reflections of the surrounding mountains. If you happen to be in the area during autumn, the trees along the lakeshore turn into beautiful shades of yellow and red. A morning fog on a cold morning is also not uncommon during this time of the year. If you drive over the Crown Range Road, one of the most scenic roads in New Zealand, you'll go past this lake.
