hi just a few snaps from my trip.

In the last few weeks the water falling of this has been a nice ash grey :hyper:


From the top of above waterfall.








Note my group standing on the rock on the left. shows the sheer scale!






Who can guess what this is for....







A truly amazing country and really well worth a visit. The natural geography of the place is simply stunning. these were only a few shots. i havent even begun on the geo-thermal stuff!

thanks for Looking.

Wow, just wow...amazing landscapes!

Has that stepped weir thing got anything to do with fish?

It's either fish, or as another controlled outlet for water to weaken the fall, maybe to preserve the life of it before it erodes too much.

Plus it would have the bonus of being able to drive turbines for power.

If it's bigger than it looks, it could be for boats to get up...

Hey, not fair, you've had three guesses


It's got to be one of those, I hedging bets on easing fish migration...even though it might be a big structure it still doesn't have anywhere near the flow rate of the waterfall and wouldn't therefore affect the flow much at all....at a guess
