Photo: Pukaki Canal New Zealand

The aqua colored water of the Pukaki Canal flowing towards Lake Benmore in Canterbury on the South Island of New Zealand.

The beautifully colored water known as the Pukaki River flows towards Lake Benmore through the Mackenzie Basin in Canterbury on the South Island of New Zealand.

Nowadays, the water from Lake Pukaki in New Zealand has been changed and runs through a canal that goes through three hydroelectric systems before entering Lake Benmore.This particular section of the Pukaki Canal is fairly calm and scenic but at times when the control gates are fully opened, the water rushes at full force into the canal. The force of the water produces a white foam which settles as the water makes it way down the canal. ... continue below the picture...
