Dramatic Skies of Lake Tekapo and Lake Pukaki

The South Island of New Zealand has some of the most purest natural landscapes and dramatic views of breathtaking scenery. On a trip to recent trip to the Mckenzie district  it really lived up to this reputation with some dramatic skies. It was cold, windy and occasionally a bit wet. However this does seem to be ingredients for an interesting landscape photo

Lake Pukaki is the largest of three roughly parallel alpine lakes running north-south along the northern edge of the Mackenzie Basin.The lake is fed at its northern end by the braided Tasman River, which has its source in the Tasman and Hooker Glaciers
