Lake Pukaki in the South Island of New Zealand

When the light is right, Lake Pukaki is a bright shade of turquoise. Its cold waters refracting the light from the ultra-fine glacial silt that is suspended in the water, unable to settle. These man-made lakes have had the unexpected consequence of complementing the mountains that surround the lake. 

The lakes are in the Mackenzie Country of high alpine plains on the edge of the Southern Alps. Not far away is the Aoraki / My Cook National Park.

Everyone travelling between Queenstown and Christchurch will travel through this area.
