I think I am getting more efficient with my waterfall photography. The car boot almost always has a tripod, some rope, and some hiking gaiters ready. Then it’s just a matter of bringing a camera and some appropriate lenses. In August, I was over in Napier. With my afternoons free, it was a chance to do some exploring.
One of the waterfalls I knew about, was Maraetotara. I hadn’t been before, but with lovely overcast conditions, I made the trip to see what was there. I wasn’t disappointed. The track to the falls is relatively short, and winds along a stream that also has appeal. Angles of view for the falls though, was limited.
The first view is the falls themselves. They feed into a large pool.
I then zoomed in on the falls, to emphasise the steps
One the way back, I added in a stream shot.
The first two shots were taken with a Sony a900 and 70-200mm f2.8 G lens. The last with a Minolta 17-35mm f3.5 G lens.
