While flying from the Rotorua on the North Island to Queenstown on the South Island of New Zealand, I spotted this incredible looking combination of colors. The colors of the lakes and canal are impossibly cyan and blue due to the sediment suspended in the water carried by the melting glacier water. (Or at least that's what they tell me…)
