Today’s travel photo is of Lake Pukaki, looking north towards a cloud covered Mount Cook on the South Island of New Zealand. You may think that I have photoshopped the hell out of that lake, but I actually haven’t. Lake Pukaki really is that beautiful colour, having being fed from the melt water from the snow and glaciers in the Southern Alps. When driving to Mount Cook you stay beside the lake all of the way, driving its entire length. It is a stunning drive with Lake Pukaki to your right, mountains rising up on your left and the tall ice capped peaks of the Southern Alps straight ahead. It is so beautiful that you have to remind yourself to keep an eye on the road. It is easy to get distracted here ;).
