A Splash of White in a Sea of Green
In January 2010 I posted this image of the Korokoro Falls. These falls are reached via a 30 minute side trip on Day 2 of the “Great New Zealand Walk” around Lake Waikaremoana in the Te Urewera National Park.
The image was taken in January 2009 during the week-long visit mentioned in my last post. During a very wet previous visit in 2007 a large volume of water was cascading over these falls but I was concerned that my camera would get drenched so never took any photographs. The state of the falls in 2009 was more benign, as can be seen from the above image.
Although only 22 metres tall, the falls are still impressive. They are set deep in native bush that is characteristic of many of New Zealand’s national parks. This image and the ones that follow were taken mid afternoon.
