holiday vila

Holiday pics: Aratiatia Rapids

The Aratiatia Dam lets water flow for about 15 minutes every two hours during the day, turning a rocky chasm into impressive rapids. We liked this so much, we watched it three times. Unfortunately, I let Greg take most of the pictures, and he did almost all close-ups "because ones of the whole thing didn't look very impressive in the viewfinder". Well, no. It's a small viewfinder. He took over 50 and hardly any of them are any good. Sigh.

Therefore these are a mix of some I took earlier in the week and the best ones Greg took.
