Huka Falls (2) - HDR

Huka Falls is an 11 metre waterfall north of Taupo. The actual height of the waterfall varies slightly depending on the data source. Wikipedia states: "The drop is technically six metres (cliff beneath the water) but the water flow raises the level to 11 metres."

Upstream, the Waikato river narrows from roughly 100 metres to a narrow 15 metre wide granite canyon. The surging water apparently reaches a volume of 220,000 litres per second. The wildly churning waters gets its beautiful colour from the reflection of the sky, lightened somewhat by the bubbles, resulting in an unusual light-blue shade.
