Aoraki/Mt Cook from Peter's Lookout
Lake Pukaki from Peter's lookout. The glacial feed to the lake gives it a distinctive blue colour, created by glacial flour, the extremely finely ground rock particles from the glacier.
Lake Tekapo, New Zealand
The colour of the lake's water truly sets it apart from other lakes. It's a beautiful turquoise blue created by rock flour from surrounding glaciers. The glaciers in the headwaters of Lake Tekapo grind rock into a fine dust on their journey down towards the lake.
Taken on the first day of our summer season!

Hiking towards the 3rd swing bridge through the open tussock area beside the Hooker River. It was a bit frosty, the track ends at the glacier lake where there is amazing views of Aoraki/Mount Cook and the Southern Alps.

The Church of the Good Shepherd - Lake Tekapo, NZ
The iconic little stone church sits on a hill on the shores of Lake Tekapo amongst the natural beauty of the mountains. The view from inside the church looks straight up the lake to the snow capped mountains.....best views ever from a church!
