Water everywhere

Once exams finished I headed off the Napier to visit my parents (and other family there).  Sadly my parents are not as well as they used to be. I wanted to see them while I had the chance to get away from work.  In theory I'm going to Kenya in December so time is getting pressing.  I used some of the time I had available to take some pictures of the local scenery.  

The first scene was of the Waipunga Falls.  This only needed a short stop on the Napier-Taupo Highway.  I wasn't sure if I would be able to as the rain was frequent on the drive over.

The next shots were from within the Tangoio Scenic Reserve.  The recent rain left the tracks soggy, making the hike a bit more challenging.  Balancing camera gear while avoiding mud and slippery tracks is always fun.  Hiking puttees are a useful thing to also have in your camera kit bag :)

The stream was swollen and had a good flow.  I used my 20/2.8mm lens for these shots, along with the a Lee 6-stop "Little Stopper".  The carbon-fibre tripod and geared head is also quite handy.
