Kitekite Stream 1

On the morning of my second day trip to North Island, NZ, I headed to Kitekite Falls, which is situated on the hinges of the beautiful coastal town of Piha, an hour's drive east of Auckland. I say beautiful because Piha is the only town in New Zealand where it slowly gets into view as you descend from over the mountains, and the Tasman Sea behind it grows majestic.


Kitekite falls is not on Google maps, to get to the carpark (which is the end of Glenesk Road), plug this coordinate into your navigation system: -36.952303,174.48404


All my shots of the magnificent 5 tier falls turned out to be duds - water spray, high position of the sun etc. So instead of that, I present to you - the charming Kitekite stream.


Used Lee 105mm polarizer and GNDs for this shot.
