Lakes are perfect subject for landscape photography. No matter what – clear skies or storm, drought or drenching rain, interesting foreground or nothing at all – you can always find your perfect shot. And even if you canâ€™t, you can always leave your camera alone and simply relax and enjoy the view.
Every visitor of the one of the most famous and largest waterfalls of New Zealand can feel its power kilometers away – the deafening noise of the Niagara Falls spreads over many miles and in good weather can be heard on the coast.
New Zealand is rightfully considered as one of the untouched and purest places on Earth, but even there some places are more untouched than the others. One of such regions, Catlins, is a home for a 22 meter high McLean Falls, the most spectacular in the area.
Purakaunui Falls is one of the most photographed falls in New Zealand and it is featured on the postage stamp issued in 1976. In Maori language the word â€œPurakaunuiâ€ means â€œbig heap of firewoodâ€ apparently referring to the surrounding forest.

Intense colours – these two words always come to my mind when I think about Australian Outback – red soil andÂ incredibly clear deep blue sky mixed with ancient landscapes create amazing scenery. If you add someÂ lakes and rivers to this mix, you get something even more outstanding – and I will not be surprised if it was one of the unofficial reasons why Menindee Lakes System wasÂ constructed …
I always marvel at how creative and arty nature can be while creating tourist attractions for us. Â Isnâ€™t it amazing how a relatively small amount of rock, placed in the right place, can force a river to make a twist like this?
If you happened to be in Katoomba or Leura region of the Blue Mountains on the wet and rainy day – donâ€™t miss Leura Cascades, if you are lucky, they will be filled with water and present a truly nice view.
