Photo of the Day: Moke Lake

This photo holds a special memory for me, as it was taken on the morning we awoke after our first night staying in our amazing camper-car – the spaceship! We travelled around the whole of New Zealand for 9 weeks staying in our spaceship in April to June 2013 (check out my summary post here) during our year living over there. This morning was a particularly frosty one after a very cold night (read more on my blog post), and we had camped at the DOC site at Moke Lake – located a short drive from Queenstown on New Zealand’s South Island. We awoke to this stunning view out the back window of our spaceship and it was by far one of the most beautiful places we camped during our trip.

Even if you don’t camp there it is definitely worth a visit as the drive there is quite an adventure and the lake is beautiful!

  1. It looks so beautiful, but very cold. I loved waking up to early morning mist on the lakes of New Zealand. One of the most beautiful views I saw was looking down from a ridge over low cloud dissipating and casting shadows over Lake Rotoiti just after sunrise.

    • Thank you so much Bonny! It was absolutely freezing! Lake Rotoiti is beautiful isn’t it – I only saw it from lake-level and it was stunning 🙂

  2. Photo of Moke Lake is amazing
