18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
The Lake and its Magic Flower Fields

The Russell lupins around New Zealand’s Lake Pukaki gave the summer scene a slightly surreal feel. The alpine lake water reminiscent of some distant Caribbean coast, is a magnet for visitors and an unforgettable sight within its display of colours and textures. The half-hearted summer drizzle could not put a dent on this amazing experience.
