An NZ maelstrom

By Brendan Moyle 14/11/2013


The Huka Falls is in a narrow ravine that connects Lake Taupo with the Waikato River.  At this point you get to see what over 200,000 litres of water per second looks like. This provides the opportunity for some dramatic photography.  Hence these two shots.  These shots were taken during steady rain.  This has the effect of adding a bit of atmosphere and thinning out the tourists.  The defect is having to shield the camera from rain to prevent drops appearing on the front element.  I used a strategically placed hand, which ruined a few shots when the hand crept into the top frame of the pic.

Anyway, something wild and furious from NZ.

Both shots are in the photo album “Natural Goodness
