Fuji xpro-2, 80mm, f/4, 1/420s, ISO 200
Whenever I’m faced with a waterfall, the temptation is to take the filters out for long exposure, but the viewpoint over Waipunga falls was too high for the tripod, and I’m glad it was. I chose a narrow depth of field for this shot and I’m glad I did, it gives it a bit of an ethereal feel.

Another spectacular waterfall near Rotorua. The challenge in shooting this one was to avoid the rafts and kayaks either coming down the fall (for the latter) or going up to it (for the former).

When you have the appropriate filters, there’s always a temptation to do really long exposures over rushing water. In my experience though, it doesn’t really work to render the flow. Exposure times around 1s or less work best in my experience, and this is what I did here at Huka falls, probably the most impressive rush of water I’ve seen in my life to date.
