Oprah and young co-stars get a taste of Kiwi living while filming A Wrinkle in Time
Oprah Winfrey says she's in love with New Zealand.
The TV queen is here filming Disney movie A Wrinkle in Time, and seems to be making the most of every opportunity to soak in New Zealand's landscapes.
In a photo taken recently in the Lake Hawea area and posted to her Instagram account, Winfrey looks out over rolling hills to the snow-capped mountains beyond.
The image is captioned: "Around every corner yet another breath taking view", and tagged #ilovenewzealand.

Winfrey isn't the only star enjoying her time here.
Deric McCabe, the youngest of the Wrinkle's three child stars, plays child prodigy Charles Wallace Murray, main protagonist Meg's younger brother.
He's been making friends with some of the locals. In photos posted to his Instagram, he's seen making friends with the dogs, sheep and cows of Hunter Valley Station, where production is currently filming.
I had the pleasure to meet the wonderful owners of the set we are filming on. They own 25,000 acres of land in New Zealand. They were absolutely fabulous and humble, and welcomed my cast members and I into their personal ranch. We met their well trained and well behaved dogs, their cows, their sheep, miniature horses, and pigs. What an amazing experience. 🙌🏽
McCabe was treated to a classic Kiwi experience when he got to bottle-feed a calf.
His older co-star and on-screen sister Storm Reid is also impressed with high country station life.
A video on her Instagram shows her gushing over a flock of sheep being herded, while in another photo she says she's going to bring one back with her.
Based on the 1963 novel by Madeleine L'Engle, A Wrinkle in Time tells the story of a brother and sister who travel through space and time to try and rescue their brilliant scientist father.
The film is due for release in April 2018.
