Looking upstream from the over-bridge at Huka Falls on the Waikato River, just outside Taupo. The first signs of a southern-hemisphere autumn was beginning to show on the color of the leaves.

Because of the high ISO (800), this was never going to have print quality, so I decided to push the saturation, used dodge and burn and pulled out an old favorite – Velvia Vision – to try and achieve a middle-earth type quality to the shot.
