Waitaki Hydro Power Scheme - South Island, New Zealand

  We had a lovely sky for our day of travel between Twizel and Dunedin, New Zealand.
...a lovely sky to match the lovely countryside of the South Island...

 We made a stop to view the Waitaki Hydro Power Scheme and Benmore Dam.
The reflections on the water were eye-catching!

 ...and, so were the wild flowers!

 some even grow in the cracks of the walls of the dam.

Waitaki Hydro Power Scheme and Benmore Dam
supplies 30% of New Zealand's hydroelectric power and consists of 8 stations.
