McKenzie Basin/Lake Tekapo

A recent trip to Lake Tekapo in the McKenzie Basin, South Canterbury, NZ

We visited Balmoral Station which is just a little further west than Lake Tekapo.
As you can see the weather was primo, the clouds putting an amazing display.

A small tarn, loved all the colours 

Lake Tekapo - the village is unseen from this vantage point

Its more about the sky in this one.  The slither of teal
is Lake Tekapo
