Wednesday Wallpaper | Hamurana Springs, Lake Rotorua

Hamurana Springs - Rotorua, New Zealand

This is another image from our recent North Island adventures, this one is by Sarah – @fredinthegrass is hiding somewhere in the bush wrangling our kids out of shot :-)

Hamurana springs was one of my favourite finds on this trip. The crystal clear waters are on a par with pupu springs in Golden Bay with the addition of plentiful trout.  To boot, the bush walk along the stream is fantastic – thanks to the restoration planting undertaken by the local community and DOC.  A great family outing.

Have a great week.

    Sell it to the Iranian government. They can use it to promote their new, invisible freshwater submarine that they will use to infiltrate the inland waterways of the west.

    You’re getting the hang of Kiwiblog really well newbie.

    It’s compulsory to piss on people’s parades as much as you possibly can. ;-)

    Technical Question :- Did you use a CP filter to avoid reflections off the surface of the water? In my experience even that can be inadequate in a lot of circumstances, especially on such a low angle.

    A fascinating location with shots beckoning around each bend
    in the stream. Off the ‘beaten’ track means no hordes of tourists.
    And the “grandies’ were well behaved!!

    @kelsey – yes, a polariser was used for this one, cuts off a fair amount of reflection and boosts saturation.

    Haha RRM – that’s right – it wouldn’t be kiwiblog without some good ol’ parade pissin’ ;-)

    @chthoniid -where’s me Friday Foto!? ;-)
