Tarawera Falls

The spectacular Tarawera Falls is approximately 65 meters high. Water surges out of fissures in a large rock cliff-face surrounded by native bush. The cliff is in fact the end of an ancient rhyolitic lava flow that is believed to have poured from an erupting Mt Tarawera about 11,000 years ago. An abrupt stop to the flow produced these high cliffs. Vegetation here has developed since the 1886 Tarawera eruption. Both Pohutukawa and Rata, native New Zealand trees, are found here.

Spectacular indeed, Pam.
That must be very noisy around of this fall!
Good composition and great perspective.
A great post: picture and note.
