Hangarua Springs

This is a straight out of the camera shot of the Hangarua Spring, the headwaters of Lake Rotorua. Eerily quite in the midst of a stand of California Redwoods (I do hope the folks that planted these beauties did not cut down a stand of native Kauri to do so!), it pumps about a million gallons an hour into a stream that feeds the lake. The ripply water, the spring below, the reflections of the sky and trees above. Mesmerising.

For perspective, here is a shot from above. The water is crystalline, the definition of clear. I always want to take more and more photos of places like this, as if there was a way to really capture it and bring it home with me. I do, I guess, but it’s not in the photos…
