Into the blue: the lovely waterbodies of New Zealand

 Lake Te Anau in the inland fjords is a study in cerulean blue.


Blue and gold: Lake Benmore at Omarama.

Lake Taupo, NZ`s largest lake is a vast blue dazzle.


Lake Tekapo shimmers a stunning aquamarine.

The Tasman Sea in a  steel grey and roiling mood.


The Mirror Lake in the Fjorlands National Park is a still denim blue.

The Pacific Ocean and the setting sun make for a great combination.


The sapphire waters of the Milford Sound.

The Waiawu River is a swathe of silver in the late evening.

Lake Wakatipu, east of Queenstown, gleams a navy blue.

At the Queenstown waterfront, though, Lake Wakatipu becomes a shimmer of teal.

Cruising the Marlborough Sound,  the colour of the sky above is reflected in the waters below.

The Pacific Ocean in a magnificent mood.

At the Huka Falls, the Waikato River is a fierce gush of icy blue.


The waterbody in Hobbiton is as magical as the place.

The tea-coloured Taieri River flowing in the gorge of the same name.


And at the mouth of Cook Strait, the waters are a cornflower blue.

An old mill on the Avon River, with brick and water an outer space blue.
