New Zealand glacial river

Taken at Mt Cook and looking towards a glacial lake.

The milky blue colour of the water is due to sediment from the glacier.

We didn't actually see Mt Cook (NZ's highest mountain) as it was obscured by cloud unfortunately, the scenery was magnificent even without seeing the mountain tops.
