Christie Falls

Also known as Falls Creek Falls. Christie Falls is a 15 metre heigh cascade type waterfall. It’s just on the side of the Milford Road (State Highway 94. Between Milford Sound and Te Anau. I would recommend stopping here on the way back from Milford Sound as there is a small parking area near the bridge just before the Falls Creek. It was a sunny day with a lot of clear blue sky, not ideal for waterfalls. A cloudly day or at dawn or dusk would be a better time for this photograph. You can see the reflections of the sky on the shiny rocks about half way up the falls on the left. I find this a little distracting, particularly the tiny bits of blue sky reflected. This seems unnatural and a little distracting from these impressive falls.
