    Found this photo from a holiday in Taupo NZ from two years ago. I took it from on the Huka Jet, at the base of the falls. In a moment of boredom, decided to have a play with it in painter!

    The Huka Falls are amazing, and just exquisite on a gorgeous day.

    "At the Huka Falls, the Waikato River which is normally 100m wide, is squeezed through a 20 metre wide gorge and over a 20m drop.
    Every second up to 250,000 cubic metres of water gushes through the gorge and shoots out over 8 metres beyond to create a beautful blue/green pool.

    The name Huka is the Maori word for 'foam', which is appropriate as the falling water and rapids certainly resembles foam, especially under flooding conditions."
