Absolutely gorgeous (though I have to wonder whether there's much benefit to the STF vs. another 135 at f/16).
    Later,

Thanks Jerry

Actually, I'd taken a bunch of pics with the 17-35G, and changed perspectives. I was going to use a 50mm but I'd forgotten to pack the Lee adapter ring for it. The only other lens I had was the 135mm STF. By serendipitous fortune going further downstream added the vegetation as left and right frames .

One benefit of the STF is it is T4.5 so you you get extra stops for long exposures. It's also a very good lens...

Waipunga Waterfall.
With a wet winter in NZ, there was a lot more water flowing than usual. I don't usually see the clouds of spray reaching as high as this.

Photo taken with Sony a7R and 70-200 f2.8 G lens.

Waipunga Waterfall from the same session, but with a wider angle to get include the river

Waiarua (L) and Waipunga (R) Falls



This is actually a stitched shot of 4 photos, with Waiarua waterfall on the left and Waipunga waterfall on the centre-right. Both falls spill over the edge of a giant volanic plateau, produced by an eruption at Taupo centuries earlier. The abrupt edge of the plateau I thought was interesting.

This plateau has a diameter of 100-130km, and still includes active volcanoes and tectonic activity. I got lucky with the light winds and the sheltered position of the falls.

Wow, some amazing images there, Wetapunga!
Do you recall what shutter speeds you used? This always seem to be a difficult choice.
A900, A58, 5d, Dynax 4, 5, 60, 500si/600si/700si/800si, various Sony & Minolta lenses, several Tamrons, lots of MF primes and *far* too many old film cameras . . .

Thanks @MirandaF

Judging shutter speeds takes some practice, as it partly depends on how much water is flowing over the falls. The faster and greater volume, the shorter the shutter speed. I went for 1.6 to 2 seconds here (with an ND 3 filter).
