NZD 12232009

imageAlpine Waterfall

These are hard to capture – where do they begin and end.  This was not one of the largest at Franz Josepf, but was at least one we could fit most of in the lens.  Still there is a bit of white far up to the left pointing to a source much further up.

I like the combination of the green, gold and gray.  I like how the water has carve a niche further into the face of the rock and hidden itself there.  I love how the white of the water doesn’t allow it to be lost.  I love the curves of the water, the multiple sets of free falling water and the fact the free falling water has it’s own direction rather than straight down.
