Water, rock and forest

Here’s a snap of Tarawera Falls not far from where my in-laws live in the Bay of Plenty that I took a few days ago. After a drive into the forest you get out and walk through the bush beside the Tarawera River for about 20 minutes to these awesome falls. There’s an outlet from Lake Tarawera that flows into the rock up top and then the falls erupt straight out of the cliff face. It’s great just to sit and watch them and soak up the enviroment. So many shades of green everywhere. Click on the image for a larger picture or click here for the really big image (700K JPEG).

  1. Stephen. It is indeed beautiful. Several years ago we boated and water-skiied across lake Tarawera, then inner tubed down the river (getting out well before the “falls”. It was so relaxing and so beautiful.

    Happy New Year mate. May it be a fruitful one for all in the Garner household.
