Weekly Photo Challenge: Forces of Nature

Huka Falls

North Island / New Zealand / 2007

Volume of water flowing through the rock face amounts to 220,000 litres per second; enough to fill one Olympic sized swimming pool in 11 seconds.

  1. The shape of this waterfall is very strange. I wonder if they do rafting on it ? Or is it too dangerous ? The most powerful waterfall I’ve ever visited was Dettifoss in Iceland, and it’s roughly about 500 000 liters/second

    • This was something I was thinking myself. All these lovely, crazy people with these adventurous sport activities. One of them will take a surf board and will go for it. But the motion of the water is extremely fast. I hope nobody will risk his/her life.

  2. I was to write the same as Fragglerocking, I love the colour of the water. Beautiful contrast between the power of the water and the pacific clouds and forest. Thanks Reinhold.
    Greetings, Francis.
