Just a few miles south of Franz Joseph you will find Lake Matheson,the most photographed lake in the world.
The lake is a perfect mirror for the sky and the mountains surrounding it.
The best time to watch this is at dawn!

Directions: Just south of Franz Joseph and close to Fox Glacier

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
