New Zealand (2/12) - Lake Pukaki

lake pukaki lake tekapo new zealand

The spectacular Lake Pukaki is on the South Island of New Zealand. Its distinctive blue colour is created by "glacier flour" or extremely fine rock particles carried by glaciers from Mount Cook over the past few hundred years.

Hi Sydney Shop Girl - That place is simply gorgeous!

Hi Phuoc - I know, I could stare at the lake all day.
