Lakes and shades of blue

Near Mount Cook, New Zealand's highest mountain yesterday The lakes are beautiful and extraordinary shades of blue fed by the glacial streams which carry fine silt.

First of Lake Tepako and wild lupins ...


Then a small lake fed by a glacier and chalky white, hardly blue at all.


Those boats were waiting to take us up to the base of the glacier ... and more photos, many more.

    1. How wonderful. Where exactly did you ski? We saw no sign of lifts etc in the area and wondered where the ski area was.

    1. Une région formidable et la vue à l'extérieur de notre chambre était incroyable ... les montagnes avec la neige et les moutons sur le champ énorme près de la porte chaque matin ... magnifique!

  3. You're killin' me here with those beautiful shots. I'd actually like to see New Zealand more than Australia! Keep it up, keep it up...

    1. No kidding with the colours and the beauty of the landscape. It is truly wonderful and just as good as Australia! Now down in the south of the island near Dunedin and very different but just as beautiful.
