Lake Pukaki: The Blue Jewel

Posted by

I’m sure you’re looking at the pictures of this blue lake thinking, “Man this girl must has gone crazy on her filter game…” Eeeh! Wrong! Lake Pukaki the bluest water I have ever seen in a lake. Guess what? The blue color is naturally occurring! Interestingly glacial erosion grinds the bedrock into small particles causing it to mix with melted glacial water creating rock flour that has a milky consistency and runs off into the nearest lakes.

What I love most about this lake, other than the fact that it is favorite color, is how the light bounces off the water. When I visited, the sky was clear and the sun’s rays seemed to glitter over the surface of the water reminding me of the way light would shine off of precious jewels.
