Te Wairoa Buried Village - Tarawera North Island New Zealand

By VincentChristopher
The village was victim to the eruption of Mt Tatawera in 1886 near Rotorua
We took the visit around the grounds of the village an then descended down some step steps ( wooded ) to arrive at these cascading waterfalls enclosed within a tropical enclave.

Set up the tripod to obtain a steady and longish shot -Post Processsing : undertaken some dodge/burn as well as exposure/highlights/shadows adjustments
- altho dark I still had to use a small aperture ( f18 ) setting to reduce the shutter speed ( conflicting variation of light ) - had no filters with me Sad
Certainly a location to revisit Smile

Hope you like

I like the way the main cascade disappears then reappears as three smaller waterfalls.

Did you find any elves, hobbits or fairies in this location! You could have conjured one into a magical dust rag and smuggled it home--

I--will just sit back and enjoy this beauty!

Looks like something out of Jurassic park Vince !
I agree with Ian... stellar job you did processing this awkwardly lit shot .
I dearly hope we can travel again in 2021,
Our goverment is advising us though that the world maybe stuck with masks and physical distancing for another year . Even with vaccines ...fingers crossed.
Best regards
Walt
