New Image Release: The Blue Pools of Haast

The blue pools are located in the West Coast region of New Zealand. We stopped here on our way to the Franz Josef glacier for a quick hike to the Blue Pools after a recommendation from a fellow photographer that I had met earlier this day. The river of glacier-fed water in these deep pools is the color of deep azure blue and they so clear that you can see right to the bottom. It was such a beautiful area and I wish I had more time to spend there.
