The colour of the lake is really that colour.

The amazing turquoise blue colour of Lake Tekapo is created by "rock flour": the glaciers in the headwaters grind the rock into fine dust. These suspended particles in combination with the sunlight create Lake Tekapo's unique water colour. (5 years and 1176 days ago)

Very nice... I think the overcast sky helps juxtapose the amazing color of the water

If I had to go this road, I would have a stiff neck looking at the side all the time ! Beautifull spot ! (and picture of course !)

I was luckier than that, the pano is taken from the deck of the cottage we stayed in.

Lovely colour and it really expresses the serenity of this panorama. Love the snowy mountain especially as a panoramic image. Well done
