Denesa’s Experience Photographing This Moment

The fresh scent of clean water perfumes the air as I sit, motionless, transfixed by the golden sunlight dancing off countless drops that echo around me, swirling in flow as they smooth both the rock edges and my inner landscape at the Parakaunui Falls in New Zealand’s Catlins.

More Information

Ecosystem Information

The Parakaunui waterfalls are located in the lush Catlins of New Zealand’s South Island. They are part of a hydrological system that nourishes the Silver Beech and Podocarp forests that surround it. Most of the precipitation that falls in New Zealand flows into rivers, lakes and underground aquifers, and only about 30% evaporates into the atmosphere, compared with 70% in other places.
