Lake Benmore

By katieb      
The last of the evening light catching the tips of the mountains on the edge of Lake Benmore in the South Island, New Zealand.
Lake Benmore was artificially created in the 1960s by the construction of Benmore Dam. The lake covers an area of approximately 75 kmē and is New Zealand's largest earth dam which is part of the Waitaki hydroelectricity power scheme.
After the lake was created the incidence of seismic shocks increased by a factor of three to six times.
There is a Salmon farm at one end of this lake, they sell the most delicious hot smoked salmon - posh campervan food along with excellent local white wine yummy!! There is also a great campsite on the edge of the lake with private shower and loo for each camp pitch - luxury.
Thank you for stopping by
