  • Thanks Lois, I tried a few different lengths of exposure and seems to be a fine line between too long and too short.

    Wicked! Little gutted after seeing this that I didn’t make it to Dawson Falls when I was in Taranaki last summer, added to the hit list for next time!

  • hey yeah – well it’s only taken me 12 years to make it up there…. so don’t feel so bad!

    Love it! Don’t see alot of B&W waterfall pictures, but this one is a beaut!!!

  • thanks Jono… the light was very flat this day and the colours were drab and unexciting. But it works fantastically in B&W
