Travel and Landscape Photography of Lake Tekapo & Lake Pukaki in New Zealand, Canterbury

In Winter 2015 I was travelling to Lake Tekapo and Lake Punkaki in New Zealand and took a couple of travel and landscape pictures. These two lakes are close to the Mount Cook glacier region. You will cross Lake Tekapo and Lake Pukaki if you are continue driving on the Highway Nr. 8 to Aoraki/Mount Cook. Lake Tekapo is the second-largest lake in the South Island of New Zealand. The extraordinary turquoise color of Lake Tekapo is created by ‚rock flour‘, finely ground particles of rock held from the glacial melt water. The Lake got its name from the maori culture which means taka (sleeping mat) and po(night) © Photographer: Maik Irmscher
