Shine Falls

Deep in the forest is this spectacular 58 metre high waterfall. It’s about one and a half hours drive north of Napier in the Hawke Bay region of New Zealand. After rough gravel road for the last 6.5km to the carpark. Then a 45 minute walk from there. It was amazing to come across such a huge waterfall on the Boundary Stream. The viewpoints are very close to the waterfall itself. Making it a challenge to capture on camera. So close in fact my camera couldn’t capture the full height at a 24mm focal length. You can’t get further back due to the forest. Sadly I didn’t bring a super wide angle lens with me. The spray from the waterfall soaked myself, the camera and tripod. So between each frame I had to wipe down the lens. In the end this is two photographs combined together in post processing.
