Sunrise, Lake Manapouri, Fiordland, New Zealand

Description: Lake Manapouri is regarded as the most beautiful lake in New Zealand. Its name is Maori for "sorrowful heart", though this name is misapplied due to an early cartographical error (the real Lake Manapouri was North Mavora Lake, which lies some distance to the east). Local Maori called Lake Manapouri Moturau, which means "many islands". Anyway both meanings are truthful description of the lake.
