Water – lots of it. Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge





Water in the sky(clouds)

Water on the ground(sea)


Water, water, every where,

And all the boards did shrink;

Water, water, every where,

Nor any drop to drink.


The Rime of the Ancient Mariner (originally The Rime of the Ancyent Marinere) is the longest major poem by the English poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge, written in 1797–98 and published in 1798 in the first edition of Lyrical Ballads. Modern editions use a revised version printed in 1817 that featured a gloss. Along with other poems in Lyrical Ballads, it was a signal shift to modern poetry and the beginning of British Romantic literature.

This guy was doing his best to get up the hills.

He had to stop  to catch his breath before paddling on.

This is at the turn off to the look out.


Entering the path way to the look out

Turning back to the parking area it looked like this.

Just before sunset.




As the road rises away from Upper Hutt on the Te Marua to Kaitoki stretch of State Highway Two, you’ll encounter a new section of road just completed in 2005. It’s a $14.2 million, 5.5 kilometre realignment of this important part of the main artery to the Wairarapa.

Half way up the initial incline you’ll encounter the Te Marua Lakes Lookout, so named because it provides a stop-off to view the spectacular scene of the Hutt River valley and the twin lakes, known as Stuart Macaskill Lakes, built to provide back-up water for the urban areas downstream.

The Waikato River, New Zealand’s longest river, moves gracefully north from Lake Taupo between banks 100 metres apart. Just before the Huka Falls it enters a shallow ravine of hard volcanic rock. The effect is nature’s large-scale equivalent of a fire hose feeding into a very fine nozzle.

Huka Falls

At Huka Falls you can witness the phenomenon of natural hydro power – more than 220, 000 litres of water per second.

Found in nature! : Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge

I sent the following photo to my tutor and asked to comment on it as a landscape photo.


Dankie ook vir die landskap foto. Dit is `n pragtige foto. Die fokus is
besonder skerp van hier voor tot ver agter en saam met perfekte beligting
kry mens amper `n driedimensionale effek.  Die geheel komposisie is ook
sterk geplaas.  Jy kom by mooi plekke uit.
