The Whataroa Falls are a easy hour tramp in from the roadside car park up Mountain Road on from Oropi Road south of Tauranga.

Its a really nice bush wander in and on part of the track at the start there are little signs describing the tree species that are to be seen as you make tracks.

There are also plenty of Kiwi about mainly because the locals have a intense pest eradication programme going on. If you leave at dusk you will hear them start up their social chat.

Its just great that we can have these little native gems with-in easy reach of a major city centre. We just have to make sure they stay protected…

This is five images blended into this panoramic which ended as a rather large file. It was so detailed i could zoom in and read some ships names so would print as a high resolution image.

Hopefully when you click on the image to open in a lightbox its resolution will show thru. A bit hard to do on a screen especially a small one. But then again you can expand with a small screen and really have a good look around. Beware this is a large file size and may take a few seconds to load up…

Sunrise shots off the deck.

Living north of Tauranga up in the hills so to speak we do get some fantastic sunrises that deserve imaging.

So have decided to gather up all the images into this page and add to it as the collection grows.

It can also  of interest to see the point at where the sun rises move from season to season. During the shortest days in winter it rises using this perspective on the left hand side of the Mount which will use as a bench-mark.Running towards summer this will migrate to the right.

Hope you enjoy viewing  these images as much as i have making them.

Beats waiting in Tauranga traffic trying to get to a decent spot to shot the sunrise…a rather hit and miss affair on a work day.

If you are interested in any of these images for your wall give me a shout…
