Bolam Lake, January 1970 (1)
This is one of two photographs that I took of Bolam Lake on a gloomy afternoon in January 1970. Please see NZ0781 : Bolam Lake, January 1970 (2) for the other. Fifty years on and I am far from sure as to the viewpoint and subject! It could have been taken from the road running across the east end of the lake in NZ0881 or from the road along the south-west side of the lake in this grid square. I'm going to plump for the latter, because the rising ground beyond the lake here would not appear in a photograph taken from the former. Furthermore I think that the trees at the end of the main body of water are on the spur of land leading to an island, because I can see more water beyond.

It would be great if someone could attempt to repeat the view!
