Waterfalls have always been a subject that has been of photographic interest to me. After visiting the Waitangi Treaty Grounds in the Northland, I came across a sign to the Haruru Falls. In the 1800s there were more than 100 Maori villages along the banks of the Haruru River. The word Haruru in Maori means “big noise”. As you can see this is quite unusual as the falls are horseshoe-shaped.
