Traveling to Mt. Cook Village in the South Island of New Zealand, I drove by Lake Pukaki. How many shades does mother earth have of blue? I call the color of Lake Pukaki Blue Ice. I looked up the color "Blue Ice" and here is an explanation.
Blue ice occurs when snow falls on a glacier, is compressed, and becomes part of the glacier. Air bubbles are squeezed out and ice crystals enlarge, making the ice appear blue.
