Caption   The turquoise water of the Hokitika River flows through Hokitika Gorge, near the town of Hokitika on the west coast of New Zealand's south island, on the morning of March 9, 2016. The striking color of the water is due to rock flour — fine rock silt created by glaciers further up the river.
