Photographer's Note

Lake Tekapo

Lake Tekapo
is largest of three roughly parallel lakes running north-south along the northern edge of the Mackenzie Basin in the South Island of New Zealand (the others are Lake Pukaki and Lake Ohau).

Lake Tekapo covers an area of 83 kmē, and is at an altitude of 700 metres above sea level.

The lake is fed at its northern end by the braided Godley Rive, which has its source in the Southern Alps, to the north.

The lake is a popular tourist destination, and several resort hotels are located at the township of Lake Tekapo at the lake's southern end.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

My husband and I holidayed in the South Island last April, and we fell in love with the area. The sky down south seems to have a different blue colour from where we live up north in the North Island. It was autumn and we were there before any snow arrived.
