I adore this image, which is heading for Lithuania today. It shows the Church of the Good Shepherd, a tiny church on the shores of Lake Tekapo. Around it, the rolling golden hills, bare now of vegetation, thanks to the early slash-and-burn agriculture. The lake, a vivid contrast against the gold of late summer. The green in the background are pine trees, planted by the settlers. Perhaps once this was native forest or grasses, now it is stark but still splendid.
