Purakaunui Falls

One of New Zealand’s most photographed waterfalls in the heart of the Catlins Forest Park. It was the first waterfall of my weekend camping in the Catlins this winter. Waterfalls are on of my favourite subjects. The weather was perfect for this type of photography. It was cloudy, dry but had been raining in the previous days. Purakaunui Falls are a short 20 minute walk through the forest from the carpark. As you can see the waterfall has three main drops but the total height is 20 metres. Taken from the lower viewing platform. This was a 5 second exposure time to capture the movement of the water.
