Routeburn Falls, 1990

Routeburn Falls, Fiordland National Park, New Zealand 1990


This image was made on a tramping trip in late November 1990 - the same trip as my "Lake McKenzie and Emily Peak" photograph.

The falls are just a minute's walk from the Routeburn Falls hut operated by the Fiordland National Park Board. It was early evening when I decided to go and see if the falls had any photographic potential. The light was fading rapidly by the time I found a pleasing composition, making the effort of carrying a tripod for two days suddenly seem worthwhile.
