Photographer's Note

This photo was taken in 2004 during a trip to the South Island of New Zealand. Lake Pukaki is 1 of 3 major lakes in the heart of Mackenzie Country. It gets it's amazing colour from glacial powder (finely ground rock particles from glaciers). In the background you can vaguely see Mt Cook (the tallest mountain in NZ) which again is a must-see scenery-wise. In fact everywhere you look in this region, there is something fascimating to point the camera at.

I included my friend in the shot as it gives you an idea of scale and also a great colour comparison.
