Mt.Cook and Lake Pukaki. Unfortunately you can’t really see the entirety of Mount Cook, because of the clouds and this is not unusual. Mountains actually cause clouds to form. On the windward side of each mountain, when the air is carrying moisture, the slopes of the mountain (or mountain range) cause the air to rise. As the air rises, it cools, and at the dew point temperature, clouds form. #themoreyouknow🌈 One last thing Lake Pukaki looks fake I know, but it’s really not, the color of the water is actually this blue which is a crazy thing to experience, there is a reason why it is, but at this point you’ve read enough so I won’t get into it now. Maybe in a later post 😉 98/365 . . . #mtcook #lakepukaki #mountains #mountain #lake #stunning #nature #unbelievable #sight #amazing #view #beautifuldestinations #beautiful #newzealand #kiwi #travelthroughtheworld #clouds #roadtrip #family #travel #travelgram #instaedit #photooftheday #365 #challenge
