Shades of grey

mt.cook_hookerglacier

This milky grey lake is glacially fed by the Hooker glacier, which you can see in the background of this photo. I love how muted and almost monochrome the colours are. No bright blue lake edged by multicoloured flowers. Just grey and earthy tones, and a stunning view to match. It’s the reward you get after a two-hour hike through lush alpine vegetation and across a few swing bridges. An absolute highlight of my latest travels through New Zealand.
